Real Madrid Plot Huge Summer Swap Deal for Juventus' Paulo Dybala Involving Morata and Rodriguez

​Real Madrid are planning a huge summer swap deal for Juventus forward  Paulo Dybala with Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez going the other way, according to  ​reports .

The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from Turin over the last few seasons, but he seemingly put an end to speculation by recently signing a new five-year deal at Juve.


But that hasn't stopped Real Madrid from marking their interest, with  ​Don Balon  claiming that Zinedine Zidane wants to sign Dybala, offering James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata in exchanged for the Argentine forward.

Dybala has been in fine form for the Italian champions so far this season, netting 17 goals and providing six assists in 38 appearances.

He was linked with a move to Barcelona to join up with compatriot Lionel Messi, but exit talk was quickly suppressed  by Dybala's decision to sign a long-term contract in Turin.

The two players linked with a move to Serie A is former Juve striker Alvaro Morata and El Clasico goalscorer James Rodriguez, both of whom have struggled to earn a regular spot in Zinedine Zidane's starting XI this season.

Los Blancos lost ground in the title-race on Sunday night, losing 3-2 to Barcelona at the Bernabeu, a result that sees Barca go to the top of La Liga on the head-to-head record.

Juve, meanwhile, took another step closer to the Serie A title by beating Genoa 4-0 to go 11 points clear at the top of the Italian top-tier.
