Real Madrid are reportedly ready to include one of Isco or Toni Kroos in a deal that would see Juventus star Paulo Dybala move to the Bernabeu.

The La Liga side are already looking to make waves in the transfer market following their Champions League exit. ‘Los Blancos’ were knocked out by Manchester City after losing 2-1 at the Etihad last Friday.

But they have quickly turned their attentions to securing a mega deal for Dybala, who starred for the Italians again in 2019/20. He scored 17 goals and registered 14 assists in all competitions, ending the year as their second top scorer.

And according to a report on Sport Mediaset, the Spaniards are considering lodging a player plus cash bid for the Argentine attacker.

It is understood they will offer €100million, as well as giving Juve the choice of Isco or Kroos. Madrid value the former at around €60million, while World Cup winner Kroos would cost €50million. Therefore, the overall price of the potential transfer could be as high as €160million.

The report adds that Madrid are already in contact with Juventus regarding Dybala. But, the Serie A champions are yet to respond with a decision.

That is partly because they are still deciding on their transfer strategy under new boss Andrea Pirlo. What’s more, with Cristiano Ronaldo rumoured to be looking for a way out of Turin, they are reluctant to allow both players go in the same summer.

New contract offer could thwart Madrid

Juventus are also hoping to agree fresh terms with Dybala, which could be another stumbling block for Real. His current deal expires in the summer of 2022.

Negotiations have been ongoing for some time, and the two parties are said to be close to reaching an agreement.

Reports of PSG’s interest in Dybala prompted Juve into offering their in-demand player a new and improved deal.

He has also been linked with a move to Manchester and United and Tottenham in the past.
