Atletico Madrid are lining up Juventus star Paulo Dybala as a replacement for the outbound Antoine Griezmann this summer, say reports in Spain.
There are growing reports that Griezmann will leave the Wanda Metropolitano for Barcelona at the end of the season, with the club now making contingency plans.
A series of reports in Marca and Onda Cero radio claim Argentine forward Dybala has been prioritised by Los Rojiblancos, with the idea defender Stefan Savic could go the other way.
Atletico’s sporting director Andrea Berta is said to have an agreement in place with Dybala’s brother Gustavo, with the entire funds of Griezmann’s sale to be directed towards the deal.
24-year-old Dybala signed a long-term contract with The Old Lady a year ago but has often been left on the bench this season, with just 18 Serie A starts.
