Manchester City are one of three European heavyweights to have made proposals to Juventus for star forward Paulo Dybala, according to Tuttosport.
In addition to City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have also made requests for the 25-year-old Argentine, but for the moment Juventus executives are ignoring them.
Word has spread lately that Juventus could be willing to sell Dybala, with speculation in Italy that they might sacrifice him to fund a stunning move for Kylian Mbappé.
Turin-based Tuttosport says there could be a big sale at Juventus next summer and with that in mind, an offer of €100 million (£89.8 million) or more from City, PSG or Bayern could tempt them into selling Dybala.
City have not invested in a forward since Gabriel Jesus, who has been struggling to find the net of late, but will undoubtedly be thinking ahead to life beyond Sergio Aguero, and Dybala’s profile could appeal to Pep Guardiola.
While playing for Palermo in 2015, Dybala famously said that he had a dream of playing for City or Barcelona some day, and with Pep now at the helm, life at the Etihad could be even more appealing for the super-talent.
Dybala (Palermo): "When I play with the Playstation, I always choose Barcelona or Manchester City. I dream to play with one of those clubs."
