Reports in Italy suggest Serie A champions Juventus are pursuing SL Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix, and funds for this immensely expensive transfer are to be generated at the expense of Dybala. The Argentine is all set to be sold off in the summer in order to aid the signing of the highly prized midfielder.
With Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey already Turin-bound in the summer, Juve aim to bolster an already impressive midfield with the addition of the highly rated and high in demand SL Benfica midfield wonderkid Joao Felix this summer.
The Portuguese midfielder has impressed this season and clubs including Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona, alongside the Serie A champions were interested in signing Felix.
However, Italian news agency Tuttosport report that the Bianconerri are taking advanced steps to lure the 19-year old midfield sensation to Italy, and his massive €100m price will be generated by selling Argentina international Paulo Dybala at the end of the season.
Dybala, who has so far scored 10 times in 37 appearances, dropped down the pecking order under Massimiliano Allegri recently, and is said to be sold in the region of €100m, in order to fund the move.
Felix scored an impressive hat-trick in Benfica’s 4-2 win against Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday, taking his tally to 15 goals and 7 assists in 36 games overall.
