Real Madrid launch amazing £77m plus £40m player exchange offer in bid for Man United & Chelsea targetPublished January 05, 2017
Real Madrid are attempting to trump Manchester United and Chelsea to the signing of Juventus striker Paulo Dybala by offering a huge cash plus player deal worth in excess of £117 million.

The sought-after Argentine remains one of the hottest properties in Europe despite seeing his game-time limited this season by the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain, with Champions League holders Real Madrid reportedly casting a keen eye over proceedings at the Juventus Stadium.
And The Sun claims that Los Blancos have already submitted an offer of £77m plus forward Alvaro Morata for the diminutive 23-year-old in the hope of pipping a series of other suitors to his signature.
This offer has been swiftly rejected by Juventus, who would ideally like to see a midfielder included as part of any prospective deal. The Serie A champions’ reliance on the injury-prone German Sami Khedira has led them to targeting Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti, amongst others, and the Bianconeri are understood to have asked Real for either Toni Kroos or Luka Modric as an additional aspect of the Dybala fee.
Such an outcome is unlikely to materialise for the Italian side due to the fact that Kroos and Modric are considered indispensable components of Zinedine Zidane’s first-team. The midfield duo have struck up a hugely successful partnership in the centre of the park for the Spaniards, and Juventus have been left in no uncertain terms that neither will be allowed to leave Madrid during the window.
While Juve would be happy to keep a player of the Argentine’s calibre at the club, their main focus at the moment seems to be making his transfer as lucrative as possible, with a new contract offer only likely to be on the cards should they fail to reach an agreement with Juventus or one of the two Premier League giants.
The paper adds that a switch to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu would also be of real interest to Dybala himself. Indeed, the Albiceleste international is believed to have informed Florentino Perez of his desire to make the move to the Spanish capital in the near-future.
Should Real and Juve fail to reach an agreement, though, the door could be opened to Manchester United and Chelsea, as the Premier League pair attempt to strengthen their forward-lines ahead of expected title charges.
Dybala’s 20 goals and nine assists throughout 2015/16 confirmed his status as one of Europe’s most in demand players, piquing the interest of the English duo and several other elite sides.
But this season, he has only made 11 starts for the Bianconeri, scoring just four goals, and his situation has led to a possible opening for potential buyers.
