It’s been a while since Florentino Perez last broke the market by completing a big-name signing, but that streak may come to an end if Real Madrid ends up empty-handed this season.
Los Blancos have struggled to find consistency all year long, especially when it comes to scoring, with Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the team to join Italian champions Juventus.
So, since Florentino can’t count on Cristiano any longer, he’s going to try and snub away one of his closest teammates at Juventus: Paulo Dybala.
The Argentinean has drawn the attention of the best clubs in the world ever since joining La Vecchia Signora, and, according to AS, he’s bound to take a step forward on his career and join the reigning UEFA Champions League Champions in the summer.
Dybala has thrived with Juventus but has always had to step back and embrace a lesser role in Allegri’s offense, and he’d be Real Madrid’s focal point up front, especially if Gareth Bale winds up leaving the team as expected.
Also, the striker looks extremely frustrated with his lack of opportunities as of late, going back to the tunnel in the 86th minute against Parma after not being used by Massimiliano Allegri.
Eventually, the 25-year-old apologized for his actions, but only played 8 minutes against Sassuolo and frustration starts to grow.
“Tonight he came on well, the bench serves to recharge yourself at a mental level,” Allegri told regarding Dybala’s situation.
Paulo has struggled to find the bottom of the nets this season so a change of environment seems like the best option for one of the most promising goal-scorers in the world right now.
