Leo Messi Wants Barcelona to Sign Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria Following Neymar Departure

F.C. Barcelona 0 Comment 14

Barcelona are reportedly willing to offer Juventus a cash plus players deal that would see Andre Gomes and Rafinha join the Bianconeri in return for Paulo Dybala, as the Argentine is one of two names Lionel Messi would like to see move to Nou Camp.

The Blaugrana find themselves with an incredible war chest of £198m after Neymar’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain, and Ernesto Valverde’s next job is to replace the departed Brazilian – with Dybala seemingly becoming their biggest target.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the La Liga giants are willing to offer the Italian champions both Andre Gomes and Rafinha as well as a lump sum of money in order to sign Dybala to the Nou Camp. However, Juventus are believed to be after an initial €120m which rises €140m for their young superstar instead.

Though Dybala isn’t the only player on their radar either. The Italian press reports that Messi is urging his side to sign compatriot Angel Di Maria from PSG – but the Ligue 1 outfit are unwilling to part ways with the winger.

Another man on their wish list comes in form of Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho – who has been long been hunted by Barcelona.

However, having only just signed a new contract with Liverpool in January, the Reds can demand as much as they want for the Brazilian, and the £100m that the Anfield outfit are holding out for may well be too much for the Spaniards.

Tentative rumours have linked Barca with a move for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe – which would pit the La Liga giants against Clasico rivals Real Madrid in the race for the youngster’s signature.
