Dybala – once a prime target of Manchester United – will listen to the offers from other clubs now. It is reported that Paris Saint Germain has made a bid of £73m for the Argentinean forward. 

Premier League transfer window is closed now but other European clubs still have a chance of strengthening their squads. And that’s what PSG is looking to do. According to the reports, the French Champions is in talks with Juventus for the transfer of Paulo Dybala.

A meeting will be held between Dybala’s agent and PSG’s sporting director to finalize the deal.

It is expected that the transfer will be completed as early as Wednesday. The 25-year-old was close to joining Manchester United until the Serie A champions cancelled the deal at the dying moments.

Afterwards, Spurs joined the race and pushed for Dybala transfer but Juventus pulled the plug at the deadline day.

Dybala transfer saga

Juventus made a couple of addition to their squad. The old lady signed Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal and Adrien Rabiot from PSG. And it seems that Dybala is not in the plans of Maurizio Sarri as he is looking for a new club.  

Mauro Icardi is a top target for former Chelsea boss as he is looking to reinforce his attack. It is reported that Sarri will use the funds generated from Dybala’s transfer to sign Icardi from Inter Milan.

It will be interesting to see if the Serie A champions will agree with the PSG terms. Fabio Paratici – Juventus chief – is eager to offload the Argentinean so he can splash the cash on Inter’s Icardi who is not in the plans of new boss Antonio Conte.

The number 9 jersey currently held by Dybala will be free and suit well on Icardi as he refused to move to somewhere else except Juventus. Paulo turned down United bid as he said that the reds will not be able to match his wage demands. However, Tottenham agreed a £69million deal with Dybala but the transfer did not happen as Juventus feared that they would not be able to find his replacement.



Finally Dybala is leaving Turin

Jorge Antun – Dybala agent – is set to meet with PSG sporting director this week and the deal is expected to be finalize till Wednesday. And PSG’s defeat to Rennes in Ligue 1 has reignited the need for a new star in the french capital. 

Neymar is sidelined from the PSG starting XI and the fans are running riot against the Brazilian. Fans carried a lot of x-rated banners against him in the Ligue 1 opener. PSG is all set to meet the wage demands of Dybala and the 25-year-old is ready to leave Turin before being linked with United and Spurs.

PSG lost to Rennes in the 2nd game-week of the Ligue 1. Edinson Cavani put french champions in front in 36th minute. But that lead only last for 8 minutes as Rennes scored in the dying moments of 1st half.

Romain Del Castillo scored in the 48th minute to put his team in front. Rennes then held the champions for 90 minutes and clinched all important 3 points. After this shocking loss, PSG will be desperate to land Dybala in French capital.
