Paulo Dybala is set to become one of the most sought-after attackers in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Juventus playmaker is facing an uncertain future in Turin after the club had brought in Dusan Vlahovic in January. While the Bianconeri remain keen on extending the contract of the Argentine, the player has attracted widespread interest from top clubs across Europe.

A recent report from Fichajes has offered some useful insights on the future of Dybala. Juventus were expected to hold talks with the player and his entourage regarding a contract extension this week, but it appears it has been postponed.

The two parties have been trying to negotiate a new deal since December, but nothing has come to fruition. It has led to speculation regarding the attacker’s future in Turin, with Atletico Madrid among the clubs interested in his services.

The Spanish giants are aware that Dybala could leave Juventus for free at the end of the season. Los Colchoneros have already been in contact with the Argentine’s agents, exploring a possibility of a summer switch to Wanda Metropolitano.

During his time at Juventus, Dybala has had an exemplary record of 112 goals and 48 assists in just 281 competitive appearances. Highly regarded as one of the most gifted strikers in Argentina, the 28-year-old could be a bargain for any European giant next summer.

For Atletico, Dybala could turn out to be an excellent replacement for Joao Felix, who may leave Wanda Metropolitano amid interest from Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

However, Atletico Madrid could face stiff competition in the pursuit of Dybala, who himself has attracted interest from several clubs, including reigning Serie A champions Inter Milan. Barcelona have been in contention to sign the Argentine international as well, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the 28-year-old this coming summer.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
