Juventus ‘would consider’ future Man City bid for forward in excess of £90m

Manchester City fans may be allowed to get their hopes up come the summer transfer window, with a report in Italy’s news source Tuttosport via the Express stating that Juventus ‘would consider’ selling Paulo Dybala.
The Argentine forward, now 25-years old, has shone for a number of seasons for the Italian champions and no doubt many neutrals would welcome the forward’s move to the Premier League.
Manchester City are the apparent frontrunners, but Juventus have warned that only a bid in excess of £90 million is likely to be enough to tempt them into transfer talks for Paulo Dybala.
Despite Manchester City’s successes and their star-laden team, the club have never spent more than £60m on one player – that being Riyad Mahrez from Leicester last summer. A bid north of £90m would shatter the record at the Etihad Stadium.
A number of top clubs around the continent are monitoring Dybala’s situation and City are likely to face competition from the likes of PSG, Bayern Munich and even their cross-city rivals Manchester United.
Dybala this season has scored five in five Champions League group games, but has seen teammate Ronaldo take on the brunt of the goal scoring in Serie A – the Argentine has scored just twice in 17 league matches.
