Liverpool ready to make £80million bid for Juventus star Paulo Dybala after Cristiano Ronaldos move to Turin
The Italian champions reportedly face having to sell a number of their top players this summer to comply with Financial Fair Play – and Liverpool are ready to take advantage
Liverpool are ready to make a £80million offer to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, following Cristiano Ronaldos move to Turin, according to reports in Argentina.
Ronaldo completed a stunning €105million (£92.7m) transfer to the Italian champions on Tuesday, leaving Real Madrid after a historic nine years at the Bernabeu.
But, it is claimed Juventus are now faced with having to sell a number of their top players this summer to comply with Financial Fair Play – and Liverpool are ready to take advantage.
According to reports from TyC Sports in his native Argentina, Dybala is a target for the Reds after Ronaldos arrival cast doubt over his role in the team.
It is claimed Dybala was not told by Juventus about the clubs plans to sign the Portuguese superstar this summer, and has also not yet been told if he is in manager Massimiliano Allegris plans to play alongside their new record signing.
Dybala is the poster boy of this Juventus team, but no doubt he will lose his place in the limelight to five-time Ballon dOr winner Ronaldo.
“Dybala is the main commercial and advertising image of the whole of Turin in the last season… but the truth is that Ronaldo will arrive and eclipse everyone,” the report from TyC Sports reads.
The 24-year-old enjoyed a stellar season for Juve, scoring 23 goals in 37 appearances and helping the team to a seventh-straight Serie A title and a fourth-straight Coppa Italia.
He was among the host of Juventus players to welcome Ronaldo to the club on Tuesday, but it is claimed the 33-year-olds arrival will mean other stars could leave.
Gonzalo Higuain has already been linked with a move to Chelsea, and now Liverpool are said to be keen on Dybala and are said to have made contact with the Argentines representatives that they are prepared to pay £80million to bring him to Anfield this summer.
