Real Madrid need offensive options right now. It’s pretty clear, especially after the game against Barcelona that, although Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior are amazing, they should not be the only players that the attack can rely upon. The Clasico taught us a lot of things, and Real need to have players that they can use in the attack when their main options aren’t working.

Now, Dybala, among others, has become a topic of conversation as it was announced that he won’t renew his contract with current club Juventus. So, from the summer of 2022, Dybala would become a free agent.

According to Daniele Longo of Calciomercato, there are two Spanish clubs interested in signing Dybala next season: Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona all could use Paolo Dybala

To be honest, Dybala could prove to be a great player for either team, especially Barcelona. Even though Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been performing really well for Barcelona, he is 32 years old, and he wouldn’t be this good for a very long time. Barcelona would have to look for a striker, and Dybala is a very good player to have in that position. He can play in multiple positions, and he’s pretty good at creating his own shot or one for his teammates.

Atletico could also use him, although I don’t see as much of a fit as I see at Barcelona due to Atleti already having Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann starting for them, and their playing style might not appeal as much to Dybala.

But, here’s the thing, obviously, it depends on the salary he asks for, but Real Madrid should be interested in the Argentine as well. Of course, giving him a starting role, especially with Kylian Mbappe joining next season, would be tough. But, Real Madrid could deploy a four-man rotation for the three spots, and maybe start giving Karim Benzema a bit more rest so that he’s in top condition when the business end of the season comes around.

If you don’t think this would work, just look at the way Manchester City handle so many good forwards and midfielders. It’s exemplary. Real Madrid used to do something similar under Zidane, but their lack of options now has really hurt them. Bringing in a multi-dimensional player like Dybala could help them a lot.

Also, while we’re on the subject, I wouldn’t look at Dybala as a superstar right now. He had the potential to be one, but now, after a few inconsistent seasons, I doubt he’d ever become one. He’s still a star, and could be an important piece in the attack if he comes for the right salary, but I doubt Real Madrid look at it that way, which is pretty sad. They really could use the extra help.
