Bayern Munich Chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge Reveals Which Juventus Player He Would Like to Sign

​Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that he wants his club to sign Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.

Dybala is regarded as one of the most promising strikers in European football, having scored eight goals and contributing three assists in 22 Serie A appearances, and has formed a formidable forward partnership with fellow goalscorers Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic.

Bayern have already signed promising players this year, securing deals for Hoffenheim duo Sebastian Rudy and Niklas Sule, and Rummenigge says Dybala is another top prospect who his club should be looking to sign.


“There are many great players in both those squads,” he told Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by ​Squawka.

“I think of someone like Dybala, but the problem is that no good players are sold on the market. Either you have to pay a sum that is outside the realms of normality or you don’t get them.

“The big difference from when I was a player is this – there was always a price-tag and it was achievable. Nowadays the best players are not sold by Bayern, Juve, Real Madrid or Barcelona, even if there’s a huge offer.”

Dybala is an important part of Juventus' Serie A title challenging side, with the side currently five points clear in first with a game in hand. Juventus have the chance to reach the Coppa Italia final when they take on Napoli in the second leg of their cup fixture.

Massimiliano Allegri's side are already 3-1 up on aggregate and could face Lazio or Roma in the final. They also take on Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.
