Juventus forward Paulo Dybala is in Madrid, but he hasn’t gone to meet with officials from Real Madrid.
La Joya hasn’t been called up by Argentina for this month’s friendlies, so he’s been granted a few days to take a holiday.
The 24-year-old caused a stir yesterday when he was pictured in the Spanish capital, along with his brother and agent, Mariano.
However, today’s Gazzetta dello Sport insists that Dybala is simply enjoying a holiday with friends, with the trip originally scheduled for the winter break.
The Juve forward picked up an injury though, and he preferred to devote his free time to recovering from his hamstring problem.
Real Madrid’s primary target is Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain, and it’s not though there was any informal or formal contact with Los Merengues.
Dybala will be back in Madrid in around three weeks, as the Bianconeri face the holders in the Champions League Quarter-Final, with the second leg at the Bernabeu on April 11.
