Karim Benzema is not having his best season at Real Madrid. Currently, the French striker is injured and he risks to miss the derby against Atlético Madrid. Benzema has scored so far 4 goals in La Liga and one in the Champions League. Some Real Madrid supporters want Álvaro Morata to play instead of the French attacker because the Spaniard is the top scorer player for Real Madrid in all competitions.
But Benzema has competitors not only inside Real Madrid but also outside. According to the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, Real Madrid are interested in signing the Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. The Argentinian is only 23 years old and he is also injured right now. Juventus are negotiating an extension of his contract but the player hasn’t signed anything yet.
Dybala arrived last year from Palermo after paying a transfer fee of €32M. The former Palermo striker scored 19 goals in his first season for Juventus in Serie A and this year he has found the net 3 times so far. His good numbers have called the attention of all big clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid.
The Italian newspaper says that Real Madrid could be interested in signing the player and form a new striker line with the ‘BCD’ (Bale, Cristiano and Dybala). However, the Spanish giants cannot sign new player until 2018 due to the FIFA ban and other clubs like FC Barcelona have also asked about Dybala situation.
The Spanish newspaper Diario As says that Dybala could become the third best paid player in the squad with this new contract. Florentino Pérez is keen to offer up to €15M per season. Only Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo would earn more that the Argentinian striker. However, having Morata and Benzema in the squad, it looks quite unlikely that Florentino Pérez, who is very fond of Benzema, decides to bring Dybala to Madrid.
