City lead Dybala chase

Manchester City are reportedly in advanced negotiations with Juventus over a summer move for Paulo Dybala. The Argentina international has netted eight goals during the ongoing campaign.

Dybala, 23, has been on the radar of both Real Madrid and Barcelona over the past month, but according to The Mirror, it is the Citizens who are in pole position to sign the former Palermo ace.

The striker, who is often likened to fellow City star Sergio Aguero, is said to be open to a fresh challenge with Max Allegri considering Gonzalo Higuain as his outright centre-forward.

Pep Guardiola's side could offer £21m in addition to a fringe player or table a £25m fee upfront for the marksman.

Sergio Aguero has already seen his starting spot being occupied by teenager Gabriel Jesus in recent weeks, and the arrival of Dybala to the Etihad could spell the end of his successful career at the Etihad.

Dybala has made 22 appearances for the Serie A holders in all competitions this season.
