Given the financial situation, Barcelona finds themselves in, the free transfer market will be revisited in the summer to strengthen the team in the right way.
Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has long been linked with a move to Blaugrana. Recently, there have been links to Napoli veteran striker Dries Mertens as well.
According to Fichajes, another name that has appeared on the radar of a Catalan club is Juventus star Paulo Dybala.
The Argentine midfielder was previously linked with a move to Camp Nou, but that did not happen. However, as the ex-Palermo ace contract expires at the end of the season, there may be a real chance that the Catalan giants could find him now.
Striving to find the form and timing of the game over the past few years, the 28-year-old has proved to be a good player this season, with nine goals and four assistants in 20 games in all competitions.
Negotiations over a new contract with Juventus have been ongoing for some time, but an agreement is yet to be reached. Also, the report says there is a greater chance that Dybala will leave the club with a free transfer rather than extend his stay in Turin.
Barcelona, in view of its shortcomings in attack, maybe looking to fight for La Joya, with his free performance that makes him an attractive team.
Ousmane Dembele’s contract expires at the end of the season, and the future of Luuk de Jong, Martin Braithwaite, and Memphis Depay remains shrouded in mystery.
While Joan Laporta is still committed to Erling Haaland, adding extra quality to support her may also be necessary. Dybala, if he does not sign again, could be an important player, although he may have to lower his salary demands.
