Paulo Dybala could become Real Madrid’s next Galactico signing. President Florentino Perez has spent weeks managing the forward’s potential arrival in the future and the operation is on track to be completed once the club’s transfer ban draws to an end (or their subsequent appeal is successful).
Los Blancos have contacted the player’s entourage and it seems Dybala has put the brakes on his contract renewal with Juve, which could force them to sell before they’d planned to. Dybala’s contract expires in 2018 and Madrid want to sign him.
The relationship between Madrid and Juve is good and the Spanish club want the operation to be beneficial for both clubs. Juve have no need to sell after allowing Paul Pogna to go in the summer, but they understand Dybala will have to be moved on if he doesn’t accept new terms. The Italian club have put a 100 million euro price tag on the forward, although Madrid could reduce that with the inclusion of James Rodriguez, a player who interests the Turin-based club.
In fact, Juve would be delighted to take James on loan in the January window coming up, because the Colombian is struggling for minutes at Madrid and is keen for a move. Dybala is, without doubt, one of the players on the international market with the biggest futures at the moment. Curiously, the player has commented on more than one occasion of his desire to play for Barça with Lionel Messi. He’s previously been a spectator at a Barcelona game in the past, too.
