Real Madrid have reportedly had an offer in the region of €70-80m rejected by Juventus for influential star Paulo Dybala.
Having initially impressed for Palermo last season, the Argentine forward enjoyed a stellar first season in Turin as he scored 19 goals in 34 Serie A appearances to help guide the club to a fifth consecutive league title.
Having established himself as one of the most exciting young players in Europe, the 22-year-old will naturally be hoping to build on this season and help Juve to further success next year.
According to Tuttosport though, the Bianconeri may have a fight on their hands to keep hold of him as Real have reportedly come in with a bid of around €70-80m, which was turned down.
While it remains to be seen whether or not the La Liga giants return with an improved offer, it is suggested that Juve are under no pressure to sell this summer and intend on building and strengthening their current group rather than sacrificing anyone for financial gain.
Nevertheless, it’s a big call for the Serie A outfit given that they signed Dybala for €32m last year, and from a business perspective, it would be a great opportunity to get a significant profit on their investment.
Fortunately, the club are seemingly prioritising their success on the pitch rather than balancing their books, and will hope that Dybala can be as influential, if not more so, next season when they will look to continue their domestic dominance while also trying to conquer Europe.
