Chelsea set to face competition for £62m striker – report

Chelsea will face competition from Real Madrid for Paulo Dybala, according to El Chiringuito

Chelsea will face competition from Real Madrid to sign £62m-rated striker Paulo Dybala in the summer transfer window, according to El Chiringuito.

Incoming Blues manager Antonio Conte is thought to have made the Juventus forward his top priority this summer as Italy head coach looks to bolster his attacking options at Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old striker scored 19 of Juve’s 72 goals to help fire the Turin side to a fourth successive Serie A title despite a disappointing start to the 2015/16 campaign.

According to the Daily Mirror, the dethroned Premier League champions would need to cough up at least £62m to lure the Argentina star from Juventus to Chelsea.

But El Chiringuito are reporting that La Liga giants and Champions League finalists Real Madrid are also keen to sign the South American forward, providing Chelsea with competition.

Conte is set to replace interim manager Guus Hiddink at the west London club after Euro 2016.
