Juventus want Bayern Munich to up their offer for Paulo Dybala to 100 millions euros so as to secure the funds needed to purchase Lazio star man Milinkovic-Savic.
Juventus continue to plan their strategy for this summer’s transfer market. This Italian club want new to bring in new faces but after last season’s 100-million-euro investment in Cristiano Ronaldo, this time they will have to sell a big name before undertaking any major acquisition.
And under this scenario, the club's plan is to sell Paulo Dybala, though the Argentine striker has already said he wants to stay in Turin.
Bayern's Dybala interest
Dybala could potentially bring in a lot of money for The Old Lady's coffers. And since he is no longer essential, his loss would not upset the club's plans too much.
Bayern Munich has long been interested in him and, according to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, has made a formal offer of 80 million euros, a price that Juventus considers insufficient, as the club are demanding 100 million euros because they plan to use that money to bring in Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Juventus sporting director, Fabio Parataci, has reportedly reached an agreement with the Serbian midfielder, but it seems that Lazio will not let go of their star man so easily.
Lazio owner and president, Claudio Lotito, has already rejected an offer of 60 million euros for Milinkovic-Savick and wants at least 100 million euros for the Serb, according to reports from Italy.
However, without securing the exit of Dybala beforehand, Juventus will have serious difficulties in finding the money to sign the Lazio striker.
