Barcelona are currently studying a potential Paulo Dybala operation.

Paulo Dybala has revived his sporting career at Roma. The talented Argentine footballer is once again decisive and has become one of the bargains of the summer market. According to David Bernabeu of SPORT, he has been offered to Barça, which is considering the move. He has a release clause of €12 million for clubs outside Italy, and his priority would be to play in Spain, although he has some offers from the Premier League. The Blaugrana club does not consider him a priority, but his option is on the table.

Dybala has become a differential player at Roma in recent months. He is a player with a profile that Barça has always liked, and his price could be manageable in the current financial situation of the club. The main problem is that Barça is looking more for a left winger with one-on-one skills, and besides, Dybala’s signing could clash with Joao Félix’s continuity, although his option will be studied.

The signing would be more than affordable, and the player’s salary, which is lower now at Roma than what he earned at Juventus, would also be suitable for Barcelona’s salary cap. The Argentine international has talent and has improved his goal-scoring performances, but he still lacks being a decisive player in top-level matches. During Messi’s era, he was rumoured several summers as a possible signing, although the operation was never finalized.

Dybala has a lot of market value after his revival in Italy. In England, West Ham has already shown interest in signing him due to his low release clause, and in Spain, Atlético de Madrid has also inquired about his situation, although no decision has been made. The next few months will be decisive, as Roma also wants to renew his contract by increasing his salary, something that the player and his entourage are willing to consider. However, if Barça decides to go for him, they would be clear that his destination would be the Camp Nou.
