Atletico Madrid have reportedly set their sights on Juventus ace Paulo Dybala to replace Antoine Griezmann after the French striker revealed he will leave the club this summer.
Griezmann intends to leave the Wanda Metropolitano after five years at the club, but his release clause – set to drop to £104m on July 1 – must first be triggered.
Atleti are after a high-profile replacement and, according to Spanish outlet Diario AS, Dybala is high on Diego Simeone’s list of targets.
The Argentina international has lost his way at the Allianz Stadium following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last year, but Simeone remains a fan and apparently believes the forward can do a job in La Liga.
Los Rojiblancos could face competition from Manchester United, however, as the Red Devils are prepared to spend big to sign Dybala, who has 10 goals and four assists in 37 Serie A and Champions League appearances this season.
