With Ronaldo completing a shock transfer to Juventus worth a whopping £99.2 million, a multitude of possibilities have been opened up regarding some of the continent’s top players.
Neymar to Madrid? Hazard to Madrid? Dybala to Liverpool? These are just some of the rumours which have emerged in light of Ronaldo’s transfer which could yet represent the drop of the first domino to set off a chain reaction of transfers.
The Dybala rumour is naturally bound to excite the Liverpool supporters, and it’s one which clearly has potential to grow from speculation into reality. With Ronaldo swapping Madrid for Turin Dybala’s place as the golden boy of the Old Lady is now in jeopardy.
Whilst predominantly operating in a number ten role, the Argentina international thrived last season across all-competitions, contributing 27 goals and 7 assists from 46 appearances. At 24-years-of-age Dybala is clearly one of the most exciting talents in world football, even if Jorge Sampaoli somehow couldn’t find a way of slotting him into Argentina’s starting eleven at the World Cup.
According to TYC Sports, Liverpool are lining up an £80 million bid to sign Dybala in light of the news that Ronaldo has moved to Juventus, and if the Reds could manage to conclude a deal in the coming weeks it would undoubtedly be their best move since Mo Salah.
Nobody could have predicted the immense success Salah enjoyed last season as he carved through defences at will with his quick-feet and lightning quick acceleration, hair bopping all the while.
Salah’s form played a key role in Liverpool’s journey to the Champions League final, but they cannot continue to rely on the electic Egyptian if they wish to lift silverware next season.
With that in mind, Jurgen Klopp must convince FSG to finance a huge deal sign Dybala this summer, as his injection of flair and goal-scoring genius could make all the difference in Liverpool’s bid to catch Man City at the summit of the Premier League.
