Italian news outlet Calciomercato Web has reported that Barcelona are keeping tabs on Roma winger Paulo Dybala.

Dybala joined Roma last summer on a free transfer but it is understood that there is a £10.6 million release clause in his deal with the Rome-based outfit and so Barcelona could trigger the clause next summer. The idea is to sign Dybala as competition for Polish striker Robert Lewandowski with Ansu Fati struggling for form and minutes.

Calciomercato Web has also said that Premier League giants Manchester United are keeping tabs on Dybala, further hinting at a summer exit for the Argentine. This season, the 29-year-old has nine goals and six assists from his 20 Serie A appearances.

Forward Ansu Fati has been tipped to leave the club this summer as the club is said to be in urgent need of raising funds to help correct their financial situation and so one of Fati or Ferran Torres could be sold. At £10.6 million, Dybala would present a low-cost option but with Lionel Messi also heavily linked with a return to Spotify Camp Nou, there is a lot that must be done before the Blaugrana can sign La Atomica.
