Bengaluru, April 15: Serie A champions Juventus to cash in on Paulo Dybala to raise funds for the transfer of £87million-rated Benfica prodigy Joao Felix, according to reports in Italy.

And according to reports in Italy , the Benfica prodigy could in fact team up with his legendary compatriot and idol in Turin next season.

Juventus are believed to be considering a move for Felix, but the Serie A championss would need to raise some funds first in order to meet Benfica's £87m asking price.

The Italians are reportedly willing to flog their star Dybala, 25, in order to finance the transfer.

Liverpool chiefs are believed to be interested in signing the Argentine forward.

Juvetus potential involvement would be a blow to United's hopes of signing Felix, as the Red Devils have been a long-term admirer of the Benfica star.

Felix has spoken before of his dream to play alongside Ronaldo.

Speaking to Tuttosport, he said: "All the best Portuguese players have gone to play in the most important foreign leagues, and of course I'd like to do that too.

"I have two big dreams: I'd like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo because he's simply the best. He's an idol, a world icon, an example for everyone."
