Interesting move...

Juventus rising star Paulo Dybala is turning heads in Europe, attracting interest from some of the greatest clubs in the world. Both

Manchester City and Manchester United plus Real Madrid and Barcelona are all reportedly keeping an eye on the Argentine, hoping they can strike a deal for the prolific striker in the summer according to Spanish paper El Confidencial.

City manager Pep Guardiola apparently sees a partnership between Paulo and current star Sergio Aguero as a mouth-watering prospect.

Although these rumors will exhilarate Sky Blue supporters, it is likely completely false. With the recent arrival of the immensely talented Gabriel Jesus, a move for another striker is clearly unnecessary. Gabriel will almost certainly become as good, if not better than Dybala, and strengthening Jesus' relationship with Agüero on and off the pitch is exceptionally crucial.

This rumor also raises another question - where will Dybala fit? With the likes of Agüero, Jesus, Kelechi Iheanacho, Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling, and Nolito it is needless to shoehorn another forward into the mix. It will create a colossal selection headache for Guardiola, no matter how talented Dybala is.

Sometimes too much is not good.
