Could Pep nab Juventus star Paulo Dybala on a free transfer ?

Recent reports suggests that Manchester City are keen on signing Juventus centre-forward Paulo Dybala in the summer transfer window.

Paulo Dybala allegedly agreed to renew his expiring contract (€7.3 million per year) at the Allianz Stadium with a bumper €10 million per year offer; however, the newest rumours indicate that Juventus intends to renegotiate the parameters of the deal during their next meeting with Dybala in February.

Following a €210 million deficit for the 2020-21 season, they may propose a 15% salary reduction to each of their six players whose contracts are scheduled to expire in June (Paulo Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, Federico Bernardeschi, Mattia De Sciglio, Mattia Perin, and Carlo Pinsoglio).

Manchester City, on the other hand, intends to offer him the same €10 million-a-year contract to capture his talents ahead of rivals such as Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 28-year-old, who can play as a centre-forward or a second striker, would be a great match for Guardiola’s false-nine formation. He might as well help replace the vacuum created by Sergio Aguero’s departure.

Manchester City currently lacks a natural number nine, so bringing in someone of Dybala’s calibre would make perfect sense. Personal terms should not be an issue either, given the Citizens are well-off financially. Furthermore, the deal would create good rivalry between him and City’s most recent addition, Julian Alvarez.
