Real Madrid are interested in signing Palermo striker Paulo Dybala, according to reports from Britain. Metro has claimed Los Blancos are planning a 42-million-euro bid to bring the 21-year-old to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Argentinian pearl has impressed many with his great season at the Italian Serie A, scoring 12 goals and providing seven assists in 22 appearances. He has caught interest from many European giants including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.
Real Madrid are looking for a striker to join the club next summer after Chicharito Hernandez returns to Manchester and Dybala is the last name added to the list.
The Argentinian striker is expected to leave Palermo during the summer transfer market, and this rumour could just be a strategy to increase the selling price. Dybala could surely be a great add for Madrid, but Florentino Perez is looking for a cheaper striker and has already set his eyes upon Villarreal’s Luciano Vietto.
Dybala arrived at Palermo in the summer of 2012 from Instituto de Cordoba, where he had scored 17 goals in 40 games. The Italian club paid 12 million euros back then and are willing to get at least three times more when they sell the striker next summer.
