Real Madrid have identified Paulo Dybala as their next transfer target, reports AS.
The European champions are currently subject to a FIFA transfer ban, but they want to make a move for Juventus’ Dybala when they are allowed to sign players again.
Madrid are willing to pay €100m to land the Argentine forward, and they will attempt to sign him next summer if world football’s governing body lift the transfer ban.
According to Spanish publication AS, Dybala is a personal favourite of Madrid president Florentino Perez
However, the Bianconeri are reportedly readying a new contract offer for the 22-year-old in a move that would see his wages doubled in Turin.
He has 27 goals in 56 matches for the club, helping them to the Italian Double last season.
With Cristiano Ronaldo 32 in February and seemingly slowing down, Real Madrid will soon need a replacement for their talisman.
Dybala has four goals and two assists in 11 matches this season.
However, he could be facing a spell on the sidelines after being diagnosed with a thigh problem in Saturday’s defeat at AC Milan.
