Despite not being officially in charge of Bayern Munich just yet, Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly keen to bring Juventus striker Paulo Dybala to the club.
The Italian tactician is due to take over in Bavaria at the end of the season once incumbent Pep Guardiola departs for a fresh challenge in England with Manchester City, and is hard at work preparing a list of transfer targets months before he takes his place on the bench.
With Bayern Munich’s squad being stacked with talent, some of their biggest names have been linked with moves abroad, and that is a factor which is already being taken seriously by Ancelotti as he waits patiently.
According to Spanish paper Sport, Bayern will be facing a battle to keep striker Robert Lewandowski at the club in the summer as Real Madrid circle.
It’s reported that Ancelotti already has a plan in place to combat the saga – with the solution lying just over 600 kilometres away in the city of Turin.
Dybala is Serie A’s second highest goalscorer this season with an impressive 13 strikes to his name, and the stunning way in which he has settled in at Juventus has not gone unnoticed by the former AC Milan boss .
The 56-year-old will look to flex Bayern’s financial muscle during the next transfer window to bring the Argentine over to Germany, following in the footsteps of Arturo Vidal and Kingsley Coman who both left the Bianconeri for the Bundesliga champions last year.
