Juventus agree transfer of Paulo Dybala from Palermo

Published Add your comment

Rumours that Paulo Dybala is set to move from Palermo this summer have been doing rounds for sometime, but it appears they can finally come to an end, with Serie A champions Juventus sealing the deal after agreeing a hefty €40 million fee with Palermo.

Dybala has come of age this season, with impressive performances that have attracted interest from across Europe. Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are just some of the suitors.

Dybala now a Juventus player

The prolific forward was left on the bench twice in a row and after 1-0 win over Cagliari manager Guiseppe Iachini said, according to Goal: ”Dybala is a Juventus player now and this club is working towards the future.”

This news will have come as a huge blow to Arsene Wenger’s transfer plans as the Gunners have long been admirers of the striker, monitoring his situation closely. The transfer of the striker to the Turin-based club will now prompt Wenger to look elsewhere as they are in the market to sign a forward.

Bright prospect

Dybala has been compared to the likes of compatriots Sergio Aguero, Javier Pastore and even been called by many “the new Messi” of Argentina.

Club president Maurizio Zamparini openly admitted that they would cash in on the player, whose contract is set to expire in 2016 and would only entertain offers around €40m, which the Champions League finalist were ready to meet.

The Rosanero were clear in their decision that they wanted the matter sorted early and last month gave the interested clubs a deadline of 14 days to complete any deal for Paulo Dybala.

The futures of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente for the Bianconeri are still unresolved, as both could depart Juventus this summer. That scenario would mean Dybala could partner Alvaro Morata, forming the attack-line for the Turin based outfit.
