Dybala Can Become the Brigade of the Battle of Barcelona and Real Madrid
Rivalry Barcelona and Real Madrid will be created in the transfer market this summer. The trigger is Juventus’ tiny striker, Paulo Dybala, who has attracted the interest of the two Spanish league giants.
In fact, the name Dybala first associated with Barcelona during the transfer market this summer, especially after Neymar joined the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). But the latest news mentions that Madrid was interested in hook winger from Argentina, even had to bid.
According to reports Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez wants to take advantage of Juventus interest to Mateo Kovacic. It is expected that Juventus are willing to negotiate, including the possibility of releasing the former Palermo player.
Real Madrid initially targeted young US striker Monaco, Kylian Mbappe. But with Juventus interest in Kovacic, Los Blancos are considering diverting the quarry.
Kovacic is not a core player at the Santiago Bernabeu because coach Zinedine Zidane rarely gives it a chance to play. The former Inter Milan player is outclassed by Toni Kroos and Luka Modric to fill Los Blancos midfield. Last season, the 23-year-old was given a play of 2,154 minutes or a total of 39 games in all competitions, with two goals and three assists.
Meanwhile, about Dybala, Barcelona had already been rumored to be memboyongnya first. But it seems Azulgrana has not fully dropped the option to the 23-year-old attacker because coach Ernesto Valverde still wants Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool and Ousmane Dembele (Borussia Dortmund).
Dybala is regarded as the right candidate to replace Neymar, who brought PSG after redeeming his release clause of 222 million euros (about Rp 3.4 trillion). But Barca never moved because of the possibility of waiting for results of talks with Coutinho, which is expected to come on Wednesday (08/08/2017).
