The hottest rumor these days is that Paris Saint-Germain will sign Neymar, and if that does indeed happen, dominos will start to fall.

That’s because his release clause stands at 222 million euro, which would mean Barcelona would be flush with cash and a necessity to fill the void left by the Brazilian star if the deal was struck.

One rumored replacement for Neymar is Juventus’s Paulo Dybala. SportMediaset, an Italian outlet, claims Dybala is atop the Catalans’ wishlist. Barcelona have followed the Argentine forward, who struck the net twice against them in Juventus’s 3-0 win over Barcelona in the past season, for a long time.

Dybala, during his time at Palermo, once said he was prepared to “swim the Mediterranean sea” if Barcelona came calling. “I wouldn't even have to change into my swimming gear,” he joked.

"Juve trembles", says SportMediaset. Is this all “fantamercato” as the Italians say, or will we see Dybala at Barcelona?
