Barcelona has given up on buying Paulo Dybala in favor of Philippe Coutinho, communicate to Spanish sources. According to the information, Juventus was ready to sell its star of Barcelona for the sum of 120 million euros, for which the Spanish champion has been notified. The clubs mentioned by dropping odds started negotiations after selling Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain and before Ousmane Dembele to negotiate the terms of their contract with the Catalans.

Barcelona, however, failed to receive priority for Dybala in favor of the Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho. The decision was personally of the Sporting Director of the Catalans, who advised the Board to prefer the Brazilian footballer because Dybala will not be able to work with Lionel Messi.

In the end, the Merseysiders showed their temper and kept their star back, which made Barcelona go back to the option Dybala. The short time until the end of the window, however, has led Juventus to negotiate strongly, despite the desire of the Catalans to pay even more money than the pre-arranged in the amount of 120 million euros.

So, in the end, the Spanish champion was able to sign a contract only with Ousmane Dembele.
