Manchester City are thinking about acquiring Dybala
Manchester City head coach Josep Guardiola is personally interested in acquiring Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Guardiola is a big fan of 25-year-old Dybala. The Argentinian could replace the Citizens’ top scorer and, at the same time, his partner in the Argentina national team, Sergio Aguero, in the future.
At the end of January, Guardiola even sent the club’s Chief Executive Officer, Ferran Soriano, to Italy with a special mission – to watch Paulo’s game personally. Soriano was spotted in the Serie A match between Lazio and Juventus.
Now, the Premier League champions are thinking about how to make their offer to buy Dybala. Despite his recent bad shape, Paulo remains a key figure in Turin and has a contract calculated until 2022, so his transfer is estimated at €100-120 million (£88-105 million).
We add, the Italian press was constantly connecting Dybala with a move to Manchester United and Liverpool earlier, suggesting that Paulo didn’t want to remain in Cristiano Ronaldo’s shadow.
