Manchester City and Paris St-Germain are set to launch the mother of all football auctions for the services of Juventus maestro Paulo Dybala claims the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old Argentinean is much-coveted by Europe’s elite clubs, with Bayern Munich the most actively interested. However, the two richest clubs in the world are set to battle for Dybala’s signature next summer. With their wealth, no other clubs will get a look in once City and PSG begin negotiations with both Juve and the player.

Dybala cost Juventus £23m four years ago when they signed him from Palermo. Since then, he has 75 goals in 152 appearances for the Bianconeri in all competitions. He hasn’t yet replicated that form for his country, however, and only scored his first international goal in November against Mexico in Mendoza.

Since Cristiano Ronaldo, 33, signed from Real Madrid, Dybala found himself playing in a wider role with the consequent impact on his scoring record. So far, the Argentina international has just 7 goals in 22 games compared to his previous goal every 193 minutes.

This shift in his use tempts both City and PSG into thinking he would be open to a move during the summer. Juventus aren’t averse to selling star players – Paul Pogba to Manchester United in a £90m deal – or moving on others who served their purpose – Gonzalo Higuain to Milan.
