Juventus are ready to cash in on Paulo Dybala if it means that they free up the funds to try and bring Portuguese wonderkid Joao Felix to the club in the summer.
Football Italia reports that Juventus star Paulo Dybala has fallen down the pecking order at Turin and currently doesn’t find himself in the plans of coach Massimiliano Allegri.
As a result, the report states that the club is willing to cash in on the Argentine playmaker for €100m so as to fund a move for Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix, who can play across the front line along with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Felix, 18, who recently scored a stunning hattrick against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League, has notched up 15 goals and 7 assists in 36 appearances so far this season.
Dybala, on the other hand, has endured a somewhat anonymous season having been constantly in and out of the team and has only 16 goal involvements in 37 appearances.
However, the report does state that obtaining Felix’s signature would be a tough proposition as the who’s who of the European heavyweights – Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City – are all interested in the player.
FOX Sports Asia probability rating: 3/5; There are so many moving parts and interested parties when it comes to Joao Felix that it is almost impossible to say if the allure of playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo alone is enough to bring him to Juventus.
