Juventus forward Paulo Dybala continues to garner interest from top European clubs, and now, the Italian champions have reportedly revealed the sum that could tempt them to sell the player.
Dybala has been a vital asset for Juventus as well as his national side Argentina in recent times.
His versatility is well versed, and it has led to teams identifying him as their chief transfer target, and currently, powerhouses like Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are believed to be keeping tabs on him.

However, United are the ones believed to be the most keen to land the player to occupy their important No. 10 position, and Juve have now named the mammoth price tag that they have set on their starlet.
The Old Lady of Turin want at least £133m for their prized possession, as that would help them use the cash in turn to attract other targets in key areas.
United signed Paul Pogba in 2016 for a then world record fee, and they followed it up by signing Romelu Lukaku for a similar amount this summer.
However, Jose Mourinho recently stated that he wants more funds to build his side, and with Antoine Griezmann’s stance unknown, Dybala offers a reliable solution for the Portuguese, given his age as well as talent.
According to Calciomercato, the Portuguese has earmarked the 24-year-old to join the red half of Manchester and be a long-term replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The club is also planning to offload Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and his sale will open up a place for Dybala to fill.
United are 15 points behind City in the Premier League, and with title hopes gone this term, Jose would be hungry to deliver a statement next season.
Dybala would certainly provide Jose with a platform to build on, and it will be interesting to see whether the club breaks the banks once again and gets the Argentine.
