Barca identify Dybala deal

Barcelona have set their sights on Juventus attacking star Paulo Dybala should Neymar leave the club to join Paris Saint-Germain, say reports in Spain.

Marca’s front page on Saturday led with a report that the Blaugrana are finally realising the seriousness of the Parisians move for the Brazilian star and feel they now must seek a replacement.

The report claims the Juve forward has already previously spoken to Camp Nou officials and has indicated he could be open to joining the club later on in his career.

El Mundo Deportivo claim there’s a verbal agreement between the Argentine – who has confessed compatriot Lionel Messi is his idol – and the Catalan club.

However, Dybala recently renewed his deal at the Italian champions until 2022 and there is no release clause – which are mandatory in Spain – in his deal.
