According to a recent report by SportMediaset, Real Madrid are eyeing a summer move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. The same source has also mentioned that Los Blancos are set to give up either Toni Kroos or Isco in exchange for the Argentine attacker during this summer transfer window.

Dybala’s Incredible Form In Italian Football Last Season

The 26-year-old enjoyed another outstanding season at the Allianz Stadium after producing a string of match-winning displays as a key component of the Juve attack. He managed to score 17 goals and provide 14 assists in 46 matches for the Italian outfit in the previous campaign.

Dybala has done well to average 2.8 shots, 1.9 key passes and 1.9 dribbles per game in the Serie A and the UEFA Champions League last season. He has excelled when distributing the ball as evidenced by his pass success rate of 88.1% in league football (stats via whoscored).

The ex-Palermo talent has made 29 senior appearances for the Argentine national team, netting two goals for his homeland in the process. Maybe a summer switch to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium could allow him to showcase his skills and stake a claim in Argentina’s squad for next year’s Copa America.

What Will The South American Attacker Add To Zinedine Zidane’s Side?

Dybala can use his quickness and agility to complete some dangerous dribbles in the attacking third. He is also proficient at finding space in and around the opposition penalty box that allows him to get a few shots on-target. The Argentine has proven his worth as a prolific goal-scorer and assist-maker, so he fits the bill in terms of what Zinedine Zidane is looking for in the ongoing summer transfer market.

Should Los Blancos Get Dybala On Board This Summer?

However, giving up either Kroos or Isco could turn out to be a foolish decision for the Madrid giants as they are both valuable members of their squad. Having said that, the former is not getting any younger while the latter has had his fair share of injury concerns in recent seasons.

Therefore, swapping one of them for Dybala will be a calculated gamble which could help Zidane refresh and energize his squad ahead of the new season. The Argentine maestro will not only add more goals and creativity to the Real Madrid frontline but also increase competition for places within their squad. Plus, he could potentially form a devastating attacking partnership with Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema at the Spanish capital in the coming seasons.

At 26, Dybala is currently playing at his prime which the Spanish champions could look to benefit from over the next few years. With all things considered, Zidane would be wise to get him on board ahead of the new season as he will help them consolidate their spot at the summit of Spanish football.
