News broke last week about Paulo Dybala drawing interest from numerous clubs over a possible summer transfer. Arsenal, Manchester United and Italian giants Juventus are all reported to be interested in the Argentine youngster.
Although one club has made an offer meeting Dybala's buy-out clause, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed that his star player has not agreed to join a new club yet.
The 21-year-old striker is destined for big things and, after helping get Palermo get back into the Serie A, he is now expected to set his sights on bigger and better things at a new club.

When speaking to Radio Due, Zamparini said: "Has Dybala already been picked up by Juve? Absolutely not."
“I already have a €40m offer in my hand, but if someone else gets into the race then we’ll see what happens.

“Were Manchester United behind this offer? I won’t tell you the name of the club, not even if you torture me!”
It is clear Palermo are giving no clues away as to who has made the offer, and although it could be any of the three clubs interested in the youngster, I'm going to try and narrow I down to the most likely destination for Dybala.
Firstly, let's rule out Manchester United. Although I think Dybala would fit well into Van Gaal's system, Manchester United need to sort their defensive frailties before looking at more expensive Argentinians.
In terms of Arsenal and Juventus, it would be feasible that both these clubs being interested in Dybala. It is unlikely that Arsene Wenger will splash £30m on such a young player, but Arsenal fans will always live in hope.
In terms of the possibility of staying in Italy, Juve will need to offload a striker before thinking about purchasing Dybala. Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente are regulars in Massimiliano Allegri's starting line up, with summer signing Alvaro Morata pushing for a first team place also.
Rumours about Morata leaving the club are strong at the moment, and Arsenal are also said to be interested in the Spaniard, which, if it materialises, could mean both Arsenal and Juventus will benefit.
If Arsenal can purchase the former Real Madrid striker, that would open the way for Dybala to move to the Juventus Stadium.
Who do you think will sign Paulo Dybala - Arsenal, Juventus or Manchester United?
