PSG deal Man Utd transfer blow as they eye Neymar replacement ahead of Barcelona move

That’s according to reports in Spain.

Neymar looks set to leave PSG this summer after telling the French champions that he wants out.

And the Parisians are apparently set to launch a bid for Dybala to replace him if he is allowed to leave the club.

Dybala has been tipped to leave Juventus this summer, after being linked with a move to Manchester United.

However, after United failed to qualify for the Champions League, those chances became slim.

With PSG needing a replacement for Neymar – if he leaves, that is – the Argentine is likely to become their prime target.

Dybala saw his amount of chances in front of goal diminish last season following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, leading to many fans fearing he was set to leave.

After a season in which the left footed forward scored 22 league goals in 33 games, Dybala had a relatively disappointing campaign last year.

He scored just five league goals in 30 games, as Ronaldo stole the limelight with 21 goals in 31 Serie A games.

Given his smaller impact on the team, it is possible that Juventus will look to cash in on Dybala to subsidise their large summer acquisitions.

This window, Juve have signed Aaron Ramsey on £400,000-per-week, Matthijs de Ligt for £68million, and Adrien Rabiot on a large salary.

With Dybala currently Juventus’ second-highest earner, it is possible that Juventus will see PSG’s interest as an opportunity to get a large amount of their wages off their books.

Both PSG and Barcelona are hurrying to try and complete the deal for Neymar according to Spanish publication Sport, and are therefore it is possible that the French side will try and push through the Dybala deal quickly.

On Saturday, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel insisted that he wants a resolution to Neymar’s situation as quickly as possible.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “He’s part of our dressing room and he will train with us on Sunday.

“The situation between myself and Neymar is clear, but this is a matter between him and the club.”
