Barcelona set to bid for Dybala as Coutinho alternative
Spanish giants, Barcelona will be eyeing Juventus forward Paulo Dybala as an alternative to Philippe Coutinho, if Liverpool rejects their £148.5million bid.
The Catalans club are set to make a late move for the Argentine International, According to Marca.
With the possibility of Philippe Coutinho arriving at the Camp Nou looking bleak, Barca will be bidding for Juve forward, Dybala, as an alternative.
Barcelona’s latest mega bid for the Brazilian, if rejected by Liverpool, will mean that the Blaugrana might not negotiate further with the Reds and hence their search for another signing will lead them to pursuing Dybala’s signature.
Barca’s Sporting Director Robert Fernandez had said earlier in the week, “My intention is that one more player comes in and, if it’s possible, even two.”
With time now running out, and the transfer window nearing its closure on Thursday, Barca will have to step up their efforts and look at their options if they wish to strengthen their squad.
