Juventus are reportedly willing to cash in on playmaker Paulo Dybala in order to lure Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe to Italy in a bid to partner the French wonderkid with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Although Dybala has developed a healthy relationship with Ronaldo since the Portugal talisman’s arrival from Real Madrid, the Argentine’s long-term future might not be at Juventus.
According to Tuttosport, the Bianconeri are willing to sell Dybala for about €140 million (R2.2 billion), cash they would then put towards a transfer bid for Mbappe.
Speculation has it Juve would love to have the Frenchman team up with his reported footballing idol Ronaldo in Italy, although this may require far more than the money they could make off Dybala’s potential sale.
As such, it is believed club would also be open to selling Mario Mandzukic in order to secure more funds.
With PSG being watched closely for possible financial breaches, the French giants might soon be forced to sell one of their key players.
Real midfielder Marco Asensio has also been linked with the Old Lady, although it seems unlikely they would be able to land both him and Mbappe in the same year.
