Juve to offload four stars for Dybala?

Serie A

Juventus are ready to sell four first-team stars in order to retain Paulo Dybala beyond the end of the current season, according to reports in Italy.

Dybala, 26, openly flirted with a move to FC Barcelona this week and as the club's most valuable asset after Cristiano Ronaldo, the Bianconeri are moving swiftly to secure his long-term future.

The Argentina international rejected the chance to leave the Serie A champions last season after Manchester United and Tottenham attempted to lure him to England. And his form since then has dramatically improved.

Now, with his contract set to expire at the end of the 2021/22 season, Maurizio Sarri's side, that has been hit by the effects of the coronavirus crisis are considering the sale of four high-profile players to prioritise Dybala.

Currently, on a €7.5-million annual wage, the diminutive forward is believed to be asking for double his current earning after his mouth-watering offers from the Premier League.

A contract in that region would rank him as the second-highest paid player in the Italian giants' squad and La Gazetta Dello Sport claims midfielder Miralem Pjanic is amongst the players set to be sacrificed for the contract to be issued.

The other players said to be on the brink of being sold are compatriot Gonzalo Higuain, France international Adrien Rabiot and Italy forward Federico Bernardeschi.

Dybala has scored 12 goals and registered 12 assists in 34 games across all competitions as the supporting striker for Cristiano Ronaldo this season.
