Could the Argentinian attacker be Real's next galactico?

Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala has snubbed FC Barcelona's interest because he wants to join Real Madrid instead, according to MARCA. Juventus want to sign him to a contract extension to improve his wages but the player and the club have not reached an agreement just yet, although a meeting is expected to happen next week, if that same report is accurate.

Real Madrid are well aware of Dybala's intention to become a Madrid player and will make a decision on whether he's worth the effort or not depending on what comes out of his contract talks with his current club.

Dybala is 23 years old and has scored four goals and delivered three assists over 15 matches played with Juventus this season. He would be a good addition to the squad but he might not be an undisputed starter right now, something that could make Real Madrid hesitate about his potential signing.
