A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, Corriere dello Sport mentioned that Manchester City are weighing up a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. It is understood that the Mancunian giants are planning to launch a move for the Argentine attacker when he becomes a free agent in the summer.

Dybala’s Outstanding Campaign In Italian Football

Dybala has put in several eye-catching displays as the focal point of Juve’s attack. The Argentine sensation has banged in 13 goals and secured six assists in 29 matches for the Italian side this season across multiple competitions.

The former Palermo talent has continued to excel as a key influence in the final third based on his average of 3.6 shots, 1.5 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in Serie A. He has even been tidy when distributing possession in the opposition half after completing 85.1% of his attempted passes in the Italian top tier (stats via whoscored).

Is Dybala The Right Choice For Manchester City?

Dybala is a well-rounded forward who can use his quickness and agility to get the better of his marker in the final third. He packs a lot of venom and accuracy with his shot attempts and is a good finisher in front of the opposition goal.

The Argentine international is a specialist from dead-ball situations and can engineer a few clear-cut opportunities for his teammates in the final third.

Recruiting Dybala will be a good choice for Man City to consider this summer when he will be available as a free agent. Pep Guardiola is in dire need of a natural number nine at the moment, so the Argentine could fit the bill perfectly as he has what it takes to help the Mancunian giants maintain their dominance in English football and even make a push for the UEFA Champions League trophy over the next few years.

We can expect Dybala to inject a lot of quality into Guardiola’s attack at the Etihad Stadium. Thus, the Man City head coach should think about bringing the South American goal-getter to the northwest of England on a free transfer at the end of this campaign.
