Paulo Dybala has been in stunning form for Juventus this season

Next manager of Bayern Munich, Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly earmarked Paulo Dybala as a replacement for Polish striker Robert Lewandowski as he continues to be linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The Italian who is set to take over at Bayern only next season has already drawn up a list of transfer targets with the talented Argentine forward, Dybala heading the list. Ancelotti has had vast experience in managing top clubs with successful stints at major clubs like AC Milan, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid dotting his impressive managerial C.V.

Bayern Munich will be hoping that the departure of Pep Guardiola in the near future does not distract them and they go on to achieve their targets for the season both domestically and in Europe.

Napoli’s manager says Juventus should consider them as their main title rivals

Napoli is currently on top of the Serie A table and Napoli’s manager Maurizio Sarri is proud that his team has been performing so well this season.

Juventus and Napoli go head to head on Saturday in what could potentially be a title-deciding clash. Sarri, however, remains confident of a good showing from his impressive Napoli team. 

"We are delighted and proud that Juve have to consider us as their main rivals for the title," he told Napoli's official website.

"We will go up there looking to make our people proud.

"Juve have been the strongest team of the last few years, they're a really well-drilled unit who are used to winning.

"Going to Turin to face them when we're already two points ahead gives us great motivation and a sense of pride."

Juventus has been in unbelievable form in recent times with 14 consecutive wins in the Serie A. However, Sarri refused to believe that the title would be decided in this match saying that there were still plenty of games left to be played in the season.

"I can't think that way because after the Turin game there are 13 more matches to play," he said. "It's not helpful, therefore, to consider it as some kind of watershed moment in the season."

The clash will also pit two of Serie A's inform strikers Gonzalo Higuain and Dybala against each other in what will surely be an intense encounter.
