According to media reports, La Liga giants Real Madrid are allegedly set to try offering France international striker Karim Benzema to Serie A champions Juventus in a bid to land Argentine attacker Paulo Dybala, also a transfer target for premier League giants Manchester United.
Recently, the Daily Star have linked Manchester United with a transfer interest in the £60million-valued attacker, while Don Balon suggest the Gunners are chasing the Frenchman.
The latest report on the transfer saga, however, comes from Spanish publication Diario Gol, who suggest Real Madrid are stepping up their attempt to sign Paulo Dybala and could try to add Karim Benzema to the transfer deal, most likely next term.
The South American has shone like million stars for the Serie A club and looks prepared to make the step further to another top European heavyweight.
The 24-year-old attacker could be ideal for Real Madrid’s needs right now as they seem like they could do with a total overhaul in attack.
Portugal international forward Cristiano Ronaldo, Wales forward Gareth Bale and France striker Benzema have all looked poor this season and Real Madrid already look dead and buried in the Spanish La Liga title race as a result.
Dybala could bring in some life up front if his form for the Italian side is anything to go by, though the Red Devils clearly could do with that type of spark in attack.
