Paulo Dybala Weighing Summer Exit Options from Juventus

Paulo Dybala‘s time at Juventus may be up as reports claim that the midfielder is open to an exit from the Turin club in the summer.

Dybala has been with the club since 2015 after joining from Palermo and has grown into a fan favourite at the Allianz Stadium.

However, he has seen his role at the club limited in recent years and his recurring injuries have also contributed to him being trusted less than he used to be.

With his contract with the Old Lady expiring in the summer, Premier League clubs have begun circling around the playmaker despite Juventus offering him the option of an extension.

Reports now claim that the midfielder is becoming more open to an exit from the Turin club because of the growing interest from the Premier League.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all reported to be in open dialogue with the player’s agents.

The only stumbling block for the clubs interested is Dybala’s affirmation, which they are all waiting to be sure of before tabling offers. Talks with Juventus are also in progress, which is also a reason the offers have not been made.

Juventus searching for a backup for Vlahovic

Juventus are also reported to be searching for a back up for Dusan Vlahovic, who joined the Bianconeri in January.

Alvaro Morata‘s loan ends this season and he will not be continuing at the club according to sources. Moise Kean, the other back up striker, has failed to deliver the goods and Juventus are not counting on him either.

With Vlahovic now the undisputed number 9 for the Bianconeri, manager Massimiliano Allegri recognises that the 22-year-old cannot play every game and as such, needs a competent backup next season.

The club have identified two targets to fill this role according to Calciomercato: Torino captain Andrea Belotti and Bayern Munich striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Belotti has been with Juventus’ city rivals Torino since 2015 and a move across may not be feasible as the Euro 2020 winner will not like to betray Torino fans.

However, his contract expires in the summer and it is reported that he is not interested in a renewal, which opens the doors to a lot of possibilities.

Choupo-Moting, however, is already familiar with the backup role from his time at Paris Saint-Germain and now with Bayern Munich.

His age could also make an operation for hims cheaper and Bayern will be willing to let him go for the right price.
