Real Madrid are planning a surprise swap deal to sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus this summer. According to recent reports, the Galacticos are planning to use Isco as a makeweight in their quest to convince Juve to part ways with their prized asset.
It is believed that the Serie A giants value Dybala in the region of €160m which Los Blancos are not willing to pay. Hence, the reigning European champions are preparing to use their Spanish winger, Isco as part of a deal to bring Dybala into the Spanish capital. Some sources have recently claimed that the Spanish international has already told Real Madrid that he does not intend to continue plying his trade at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium beyond this summer.
Isco has been linked with a move to Manchester City in recent months but Los Blancos does not want their midfielder to join Pep Guardiola’s revolution at the Etihad Stadium. The 25-year-old Spaniard has featured in 41 matches for Real Madrid this season, scoring seven goals and providing eight assists in all competitions. Meanwhile, Dybala has made 37 appearances for Juve this season, scoring 22 goals and grabbing six assists across all competitions.
Los Blancos are currently in the 3rd position in the Premier League table with a tally of 63 points after Gameweek 30. Zinedine Zidane’s side have really struggled to cope with the pace of Barcelona in the top tier of Spanish football. However, they are well on their way towards qualifying for the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League after securing an emphatic 3-0 away versus Juventus at the Juventus Stadium on Tuesday night.
A potential Isco-Dybala swap deal with benefit both parties as either player has the potential to be a match-winner on their day. The Argentine striker scores a lot of goals while the Spaniard is one of the finest playmakers on the planet. However, Dybala is a year younger than Isco and has the potential to be a future star for the Galacticos.
The fact that Isco is a player who is keen on making a move out of the Spanish capital this summer in search of greener pastures indicate that Juventus has a great chance of landing the player if they are willing to sacrifice the talents of Dybala. Only time will tell what lies ahead in the future of both the players and whether they end up swapping clubs in the near future.
