We’ve barely even entered the home straight of the season and it’s already been a campaign to forget for Juventus fans. Moreover, the Old Lady never really looked like mounting a serious title defense, their quest to secure a first Champions League trophy since 1996
However, the Argentine forward has flourished into one of Serie A’s most exciting players since his 2015 move from Palermo. But Juve seems happy to cash in on Dybala and put their faith in someone else. Though, we’re not going to mention names, the eagle-eyed among you may notice a craftily hidden hint as to who said player is somewhere within this article…
5. Tottenham (For Transfer News download Footylight )
Pros: If he’s lucky he might just be able to call himself a Carabao Cup winner one day. But in all seriousness, Tottenham have some stellar attacking options for him to play alongside and there’s a number of international colleagues to help him settle in.
Cons: Spurs are barely even guaranteed Europa League football, never mind Champions League football. Dybala is too good a talent to be playing at a club that isn’t even top dogs in their own city.
Dybala happiness – 1/10: He’d no doubt play regular football were he to move to Spurs, but the kind of football he’d be asked to play just wouldn’t bring out the best in him.
Pros: Chelsea looks to be a team on the up and with Thomas Tuchel beginning to get the best out of his star-studded squad, the Blues could be a force to be reckoned with next season.
Cons: Creative midfielders are the last thing Chelsea needs right now. With Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz already on Tuchel’s roster, regular football is far from guaranteed where Dybala to move to west London.
Dybala happiness – 4/10: Chelsea looks to be a perfect fit for Dybala though there’s just that niggling doubt that he would constantly be in and out of the first team. Because Tuchel looks to keep everyone happy.
If any of the aforementioned players move on in the summer it could be a different story. But for now, it just doesn’t seem a sensible option.
3. Manchester United (For Transfer News download Footylight )
Pros: Irrespective of how long they’ve gone without being crowned Premier League champions, Manchester United will always be one of the most attractive clubs in England. Also the Red Devils appear to be slowly regaining their status as one of English football’s top teams, and Dybala could have a hand in helping them return to their former glories.
Cons: The pressure to produce at a club of United’s stature is huge. As well as, a whole host of big-name players have found themselves trying to rebuild their careers here. As Dybala is nearly at that stage, a move to United would represent something of a gamble.
Dybala happiness – 5/10: If it all went to plan then there aren’t many better moves out there for the Argentina international – but it’s a big but.
Pros: Playing for one of the biggest sides in Europe and getting to link up with international teammate Lionel Messi.
Cons: Dybala could play for one of the biggest shambles in Europe. Also potentially not linking up with Messi if he leaves at the end of the season.
Dybala happiness – 6/10: Despite all of the cons listed above, Barcelona is always going to be a huge draw – especially for South American players. In addition to that, the chance to link up with Messi and almost certainly add to his trophy collection. Moreover, the way is always going to be an attractive proposition.
1. Paris Saint-Germain (For Transfer News download Footylight )
Pros: Here, he could play with some of the world’s best players. Besides winning countless trophies, he may even earn a bit of money if he’s lucky.
Cons: 12-year-old with pictures of Cristiano Ronaldo as their avatar on Twitter saying something about farmers…
Dybala happiness – 9/10: Who wouldn’t like to earn loads of money while you’re playing alongside some of the best players in the world. Additionally, pick up trophies every other week?
