PSG 'identify Neymar replacement' as move to Barcelona moves step closer

By

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly identified Juventus forward Paulo Dybala as the man to replace Neymar at the French champions.

Neymar has demanded a move away from the club this summer, with Barcelona having made an opening offer for the forward.

The Brazilian has his heart set on a return to the Nou Camp, and PSG will allow him to leave if their asking price is met.

Barcelona are believed to have offered €90million plus two players from a choice of six – including Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.

PSG are yet to respond but reports in France claim they are ready to move for Argentina international Dybala.

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin last summer saw Dybala’s role in the side limited and he is believed to be interested in a move to Paris.

The report claims that Dybala will not be allowed to leave Juventus for less than €80m.

Manchester United have also been interested in signing the player but are limited by not being able to offer Champions League football next season.

The price tag is also likely to be prohibitive, unless United agree to offload Paul Pogba to Real Madrid .

Paulo Dybala is keen to leave Juventus this summer

The Old Trafford club are demanding at least £150m for the French World Cup winner.

Before the end of last season, Dybala’s brother claimed his sibling was looking to leave the Serie A champions.

“There is a big chance that Paulo will leave Turin, he needs a change,” Gustavo said in an interview with Radio Impacto show Futbolemico.

“He was very comfortable in Italy but he isn’t any more – like many other Juventus players. He is not the only one who will leave.”
