Argentine looks set for Juventus move
Palermo vice-president Guglielmo Micciche has admitted that Serie A champions Juventus are the club leading the race to sign Paulo Dybala.
The 21-year-old has been in very impressive form this season as he has scored 13 goals in 34 appearances.
The Argentine’s gleaming performances this campaign has attracted interest from top clubs across Europe including Barcelona and Real Madrid.
There are several Premier League clubs interested in signing the former Instituto star with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea closely monitoring the forward.
However, the Premier League sides face tough competition to sign Dybala, who only moved to Sicily in 2012, because Italian giants Juventus are the favourites to sign him.
Micciche said: “So far we have no news.
“However, I can confirm there is strong interest from Juventus. We’re working to find a solution, along with the lad’s agent.
“Juventus have a strong chance [of signing him], but there are also some foreign clubs challenging.
“If we get comparable offers, then it will be down to the player to choose which he prefers.
“Are Juventus favourites in Italy? I think so, they’re the only one out of those who have made an offer who are in the Champions League.
“That’s a fundamental requirement for him [Dybala] that clubs like Milan and Inter can’t offer.” he added.
