Barcelona have Dybala in their sights as a plan B if they fail to land Antoine Griezmann in the summer

Since moving to Juventus from fellow Italian side Palermo in the summer of 2015, Dybala has developed into one of the most talented forwards in world football.

In 140 games for the Italian champions, the 24-year-old has managed to clock up a total of 68 goals and 25 assists, an impressive return considering Dybala isn’t Juventus main attacking threat.

If Barcelona are to lose out in their pursuit of Griezmann, it may not be all doom and gloom for the Blaugrana if they managed to bring Dybala in instead.
