Real Madrid will go all out to find a long-term replacement of Cristiano Ronaldo this summer and they want Paulo Dybala or Antoine Griezmann as their next galactico signing, according to reports.
Juventus attacker Dybala has been heavily linked with a summer move to Real Madrid and Barcelona over the past few months following his sensational rise through the ranks in Italy.
Madrid are reported to be a bit concerned with Cristiano Ronaldo’s current form despite the Portuguese star’s 19 goals from 22 La Liga games. They believe he is slowing down gradually, so a long-term replacement should be unearthed as soon as possible.
Juventus are keen to tie down Dybala to a longer deal as his current contract running until 2020. But with the Italian giants yet to start talks over an extension, Real Madrid are desperate to take advantage of his situation beating Barcelona who are also heavily linked with him.
The latest reports claim Dybala already has reached a verbal agreement with Real chief Florentino Perez to secure a Bernabeu switch in the summer. In case Dybala decides not to join the Madrid giants, then there is Antoine Griezmann, Bernabeu hierarchy will switch their focus on the Atletico marksman.
But it appears Dybala already prefers a move to Real over their arch rivals with the report claiming he doesn’t want to link up with Lionel Messi and Neymar.
It is believed the Argentine feels he would not shine in his own right with the pair already the star names at Camp Nou.
But Dybala’s signature definitely won’t come cheap with the report suggesting Juve will only open talks when offers are at least £100m.
