The transfer window has closed, but that will never prevent Mino Raiola from inserting his two cents into the media, trying to negotiate big-money moves for his players and equally big pay cheques for himself. This time, the player being spoken about is Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, who has become one of the best players in Serie A during his time in Turin.

Scoring 49 and assisting 18 in 98 appearances for the Bianconeri is impressive, even more so for a 23-year-old who typically plays behind another striker. Dybala’s well-rounded physical attributes of pace, agility, and balance are perfectly complemented by his ability to strike the ball or fashion chances for teammates.

Attributes he holds are some that many clubs would be interested if the forward chose to leave Juventus, as Raiola predicts he will: I think Dybala will eventually leave Juve,” Raiola told RaiSport. “He has to go to a team where he gets into a project that is already suitable for him.

“For him, it is difficult now to enter a reformed Barcelona, but he would do well at Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea.”

The clubs Raiola has touted would make sense for the Argentinean, too. Real Madrid are always in the market for the world’s greatest talents, and given that public target Kylian Mbappé has gone to Paris Saint-Germain, Zinedine Zidane could be in for another deep-lying forward to replace Karim Benzema, who will be 30 this year and hasn’t scored enough goals for a team of Los Blancos’ quality.

Moving to England would also make sense on all fronts; Manchester United were publicly targeting Antoine Griezmann and Dybala is a very comparable player from a positional perspective, while Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola loves a marquee signing, and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard could use a creative partner behind new striker Paulo Dybala.

Either which way, Raiola has opened the door and Dybala is yet to shut it, leaving a potential move firmly in the balance. It will be interesting to follow what could be the next major saga in the series of ridiculous transfer moves that have encapsulated the last two years.
