Real Madrid are reportedly ready to try offering Karim Benzema to Juventus in a bid to sign Argentine forward Paulo Dybala, also a target for Manchester United.
The latest update on the saga, however, comes from Diario Gol, who claim Real are stepping up their efforts to bring in Dybala and could try to include Benzema in the deal, most likely next summer.
Dybala has shone for Juventus and looks ready to make the step up to another major European powerhouse.
The 24-year-old could be ideal for Real’s needs at the moment as they look like they could do with revamping their in-decline front three.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Benzema have all looked off the pace this year and Real already seem dead and buried in the La Liga title race as a result.
Dybala could inject some life into that attack if his form for Juventus is anything to go by, though United clearly could also do with that kind of spark up front.
Jose Mourinho’s side were held 2-2 by Burnley in the Premier League today, with players like Romelu Lukaku just not firing recently.
