Dybala could reject Barcelona

Reports in Spain suggest Juventus forward Paulo Dybala could reject a move to Barcelona.

The Blaugrana are thought to be close to selling Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record €222m.

Given Dybala’s idol is Lionel Messi, it has been widely suggested they could use the money to fund a move for the Argentine.

However, Mundo Deportivo reports that Barça haven’t contacted La Joya’s entourage, leaving the player skeptical over how much the Catalan club want him.

In addition, Dybala is thought to be unsure over which role he would play if he were to move to Camp Nou.

He wouldn’t be a natural replacement for Neymar, as his style is more similar to Messi and there’s no chance he’d replace his compatriot in the side.

As the newspaper has previously claimed, Mundo Deportivo reiterates a verbal agreement between Dybala and Juve that he can move to Barça for €120m.

However, it appears the player himself may actually reject the move.
