Palermo expect to sell Paulo Dybala within two weeks

Published 5 Comments

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini is obviously not happy with the amount of press he and his club are getting at the moment.

He has, once again, declared that he is ready to sell his prized asset Paulo Dybala with at least several clubs very interested in agreeing a deal.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in the young striker but a move to Serie A giants Juventus seems most likely at this point.

Zamparini has not hesitated to name the clubs currently in the running for Dybala, but has refused to confirm which clubs are now leading the race.

However, he does admit that the Argentine is likely to agree a transfer at some point in the next two weeks, which would be before the current season is even completed.

Set to move

“At least three teams are really interested in him,” Zamparini told the Italian newspaper Giornale di Sicilia. “The apple is ripe and we are ready to pick it.

“I think in 10, or a maximum of 15 days we will know his future. We will meet with the player and his agent to complete the deal. Those who understand football realise his potential.”

The asking price

Should Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal or Arsene Wenger want to bring the 21-year-old to the Premier League, they will have to part with €40million to do so.

That is a heavy price to pay for a player who is more potential than he is potent. Dybala has scored 13 goals and assisted a further ten this season, which is a decent return for a young player, but not out of this world.

Where could he go?

Dybala could fit into any one of the three Premier League clubs, but Manchester United's need for a striker far outweighs that of Chelsea or Arsenal.

Radamel Falcao has failed to impress on his loan spell from AS Monaco and is set to return at the end of the current season. Similarly, Robin van Persie's future is uncertain after a campaign full of ill-form and ill-fitness.

That would leave Van Gaal with just James Wilson to choose from.
