Juventus reject offer

Milan: Juventus have rejected an offer from Barcelona for star striker Paulo Dybala that is reported to be in excess of 80m euros, a report claimed on Friday. Dybala, signed last summer from Palermo for 40m euros, has quickly become a fans’ favourite in Turin as the champions continue their fightback following a disastrous start to the campaign. In 19 league appearances, the Argentinian has struck 11 goals including some spectacular efforts that have attracted the attention of La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. A report in Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport claims Juventus president Beppe Marotta rejected an offer of 80m euros for the player when Barcelona sporting director Ariedo Braida knocked on the door in December.
