Report: Paulo Dybala to Juventus a done deal ?

May 12, 2015 - 8:50 am

Numerous reports in Italy and Argentina suggest Juventus have all but completed the signing of Palermo striker Paulo Dybala.

Speculation has been mounting in the last week that the Bianconeri have beaten off competition from the likes of Chelsea and PSG to secure the 20-year-old’s signature.

This morning’s Corriere dello Sport led with the headline ‘Juve: Dybala is yours’ reporting that the player has agreed to a move that will cost Juventus close to €32m up front and close to €8m in bonuses.

Argentine media outlet Noticias Argentinas also confirm that the deal will go ahead with the player’s brother set to fly to Italy alongside his agent. The website reports that a verbal agreement is in place and the move will be completed following Juve’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Noticias Argentinas also suggest that Juve striker Carlos Tevez played an important role in the deal, having spoken to Dybala by phone and convinced him of the benefits of playing for the Bianconeri.

Finally, Italian daily Tuttosport also run with the story that Dybala has all but completed his move to Turin, although the fee is reported to be closer to €28m to be paid over 3 years and €4m in bonuses.

    I do not see signing Dybala as an acquisition that Juve needs. I do not think he will reach Messi’s technical level, but will put him at aguero’s potential. The figures being rumored can be better spent with other options. Juventus should invest in the defence department. I will prefer Cavani over Dybala.

      Cavani isn’t a defender. We don’t really need any 1st team defenders since we have plenty already, maybe back up but it’s not rly necessary.
      Cavani is getting older while Dybala is still very young. Cavani has never reached Messi’s level either, and if Dybala reaches Aguero’s level, it will be more than enough to be of great use to us. The only reason Aguero’s potential isn’t coming out anymore is because he plays for City.

        I know Cavani is not a defender. However, if we were to splash money in the figures that are mentioned I believe Cavani will be much more decisive than Dybala. The reason why Aguero is not being protagonistic is because of how he is being used in the team.

    He hasn’t been selected for Argentina’s Copa America squad; welcome to the Nazionale Paulo. Conte would be happy to see you

        Just look at this and you’ll see how many countries use foreign borns. I am not saying what reason or another the player played for the given country but there are some better reasons than others.
