Serie A champions Juventus are on the verge of signing Palermo striker Paulo Dybala this weekend, with Chelsea and Manchester United set to miss out.

Reports in both Italy and England claim that Dybala, 21, will undergo a medical with the Champions League finalists today and the deal should be completed soon after.

The forward has been in fine form for Palermo this season, with 13 league goals and 10 league assists, providing much of the inspiration behind his side's mid-table finish.

However, the lure of the Turin giants appears to have won over Dybala. The youngster is quoted by the Daily Mirror as favouring the move because "they (Juventus) made a real effort to sign me" as opposed to the lukewarm interest from England.

The Argentine is confident he can make an impact ahead of his reported £28m move, saying that he has already proved doubters wrong during his time at Palermo and that: "With a calm mind I will try to repay the Bianconeri."

Dybala is likely to be used as part of a three-man attack at Juventus, partnering Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata, casting doubt on the role of Fernando Llorente - who has endured a difficult 2014-15 campaign.

Will Dybala regret not moving to the Premier League? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
