With the possibility of Philippe Coutinho arriving at the Camp Nou looking bleak, Barcelona will be bidding for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, as an alternative, according to Marca.
Barcelona’s latest mega bid for the Brazilian, if rejected by Liverpool, will mean that the Catalan club might not negotiate further with the Reds and hence their search for another signing will lead them to pursuing Dybala’s signature.
The sticking point might be boss Ernesto Valverde, though. The Spaniard is of the view Dybala is very similar to club legend Lionel Messi and he is seeking a different kind of player.
Barca’s Sporting Director Robert Fernandez had said earlier in the week: “My intention is that one more player comes in and, if it’s possible, even two.”
With time now running out, and the transfer window nearing its closure on Thursday, Barca will have to step up their efforts and look at their options if they wish to strengthen their squad.
