What's the news?

According to AS, Paulo Dybala is currently unhappy at Juventus and could leave the club to join Real Madrid in summer.

In case you didn't know...

Paulo Dybala joined Juventus from Palermo in 2015 and established himself among the best players in the world with the I bianconeri.

He played 149 games in all competitions for the Turin-based club thus far and helped them win three Serie A titles along with three Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana trophies.

The Argentine was the part of the FIFA FIFPro World XI- second team in 2017 and was also included in the Serie A Team of the Season on three different occasions.

However, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer took away the limelight from the attacker and his performances got affected by that.

He was linked with a move away from Allianz Stadium during the January transfer window and could finally move onto pastures new in summer.
