Liverpool are planning an audacious move to finally replace Philippe Coutinho with the signing of Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, according to a report.
The deal though, mooted by Tuttomercatoweb, largely depends on Cristiano Ronaldo heading to Turin.
Juve are believed to have offered £88m fto Real for Ronaldo – an offer they are considering for the 33-year-old Portugal forward and their all-time top scorer with 451 goals.
Juventus managing director Giuseppe Marotta has remained tight-lipped on the possibility of the Serie A champions making a sensational move for Ronaldo.
Marotta did nothing to downplay the rumours when he was asked by Sky Sport: “Can Juve fans start dreaming about Cristiano Ronaldo?”
Juventus’ managing director responded: “I won’t speak (about that).”
The report claims Liverpool have made an enquiry for the Argentinian playmaker, who made just one appearance at the World Cup.
Dybala though hit 27 goals en route to the Scudetto last season and the source claim a fee of around £140million is likely as Jurgen Klopp aims to fill the No.10 void left by Coutinho heading to Barcelona last January.
However, the source also claim there is a possibility that Dybala could be used to tempt Real into selling and could be used as part of the Ronaldo move.
