Despite Juventus’ poor start to the season, which is showing a serious upturn of late, Pablo Dybala has undoubtedly improved his standing in world football in Turin.
Just 22, Dybala moved from Palermo to Juventus last summer for a fee of 32 million euros.
Having banged in the goals at Palermo and now as he acclimatises to life at Juventus, Dybala is being tipped as one of the best up-and-coming young strikers in world football.
So much so, that Spanish newspaper AS believe Barcelona are preparing a whopping 60 million euro bid for Dybala next summer.
AS cite 10Sport as their source but the fact Dybala is even being considered by Barcelona says something about his quality.
The Argentine would be unlikely to replace the MSN trio of Leo Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, but could be a more than useful option off the bench.
Or, AS speculate, that Barcelona may see Dybala as a replacement for one of the MSN, should any of them leave in the coming years.
