Paulo Dybala pictured at Nou Camp amid transfer speculation

by Ben Topliss

Palermo striker Paulo Dybala has been pictured at the Camp Nou amid ongoing speculation over where his future lies.

Manchester United, Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester City have all been linked with Dybala who has lit up Serie A this season having registered 12 goals and seven assists in 27 league appearances, so much so he was dubbed ‘the future Messi‘.

A number of reports have suggested that Juventus are favourites to sign the 21-year-old after Dybala’s entourage told Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini that he wanted to stay in Italy.

However, the player himself has previously admitted that he “dreams” of linking up with Lionel Messi at Barcelona. The picture, taken before El Clasico on Sunday, appears to confirm his affinity with the club:

Unfortunately for Man United and Louis van Gaal, it seems as if Dybala seems to prefer the prospect of playing with Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez rather than Jonny Evans, Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson.

Regardless of what happens with Dybala, van Gaal is going to be on the lookout for a new striker with Radamel Falcao’s future far from certain and Robin van Persie once again back on the sidelines with more long-term injuries.
