Atletico Madrid linked with Argentine playmaker by Italian sources

Atletico Madrid are preparing for another uncertain summer, with largely conflicting reports about their team's planning. Some say they are ready for a revolution, while other outlets claim they will have to sell before signing. One cheaper alternative could be Paulo Dybala.

The Roma playmaker is said to have a clause in his contract that will allow him to leave Serie A next summer, new reports from Italy, according to Diario AS. Dybala, 30, has scored 16 goals and provided 10 assists this season in 35 appearances, and is in the final year of his contract with Roma. This clause will be erased if he renews his contract, but with Daniele De Rossi not using him much, there appears to be a good chance of him moving forward.

Dybala won't do much to lower the average age of a mature Atletico squad, but he will undoubtedly be a bargain in terms of price and quality. On the other hand, the left-footed Argentine tends to dominate the system he plays in, requiring managers to pay attention to his playing style – a situation that has not worked well for Antoine Griezmann in the past. Dybala was previously linked with a move to Barcelona, ​​but those links have cooled.
