Juventus fans are used to worrying about Barcelona’s interest in their midfield superstar Paul Pogba. But now the Catalans have a new target in Turin, in the form of young Argentinian attacker Paulo Dybala.
And Italian paper Tuttosport claim that the Spanish club have had a bid of 80m euros for Dybala turned down by Juve.
The 22-year-old is a wonderful talent, and has made a seamless transition from Palermo to the Italian champions, contributing 12 goals and 8 assists in 20 Serie A games this season.
Speculation had increased over Dybala’s future when the youngster said that he was keen to play alongside Lionel Messi, but he later clarified that he meant in the Argentina national team, rather than in La Liga.
It’s also hard to believe that Barca would offer so much money for a player they don’t currently need. The Messi-Suarez-Neymar attack is the fiercest in Europe, and the cash could almost certainly be better spent in defence or midfield - if indeed the Blaugrana have it.
