Manchester City in three-way battle with Bayern & PSG for Juventus ace

Paulo Dybala

Juventus will be looking to strike a deal with one of the three European giants who are strongly interested in signing Paulo Dybala.

According to Italian news outlet Tuttosport, the tabloid claims likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Bayern Munich are in a three-way battle to sign Dybala.

The Bianconeri are looking to bag at least a £90 million profit on the 25-year-old. Having signed Dybala from Palermo in 2015, the forward has to his name 70 League goals and 35 assists in 176 games for the Serie A giants.

This implies that a transfer fee of around £115 million would be a let-go for Juve to release the Argentine.

It’s something of a surprise to PSG who are facing a sanction for breach of FFP rules, for huge spending on the signing of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to be in the race to sign Dybala with such a hefty figure.

Dybala as young star would only consider moving to Paris whereby he won’t just have to be a backup option and considering the fact that Neymar is likely to depart, Dybala would be brilliant replacement for the squad.

Bayern bidding for Dybala would be an option of replacement for Arjen Robben, as both players boast of similar skills.

At Manchester City, the level of talents present in the team is even more competing than what is present at PSG, with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva all in contention for a starting lineup.

That said, Dybala doesn’t look likely to move to City but considering the fact of working under Pep Guardiola and who knows, maybe he’s seen as a direct replacement to Aguero, then this report would be something to go by.
