Dybala is the star in the Italian league right now. With 13 goals and 10 assists in 30 league games for Palermo this season already, the Argentine has attracted a whole lot of suitors. Most especially from Chelsea and Juventus. There are reports that Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are also interested in signing the 21 years old prodigy of a striker. But Chelsea and the Old Lady appear to be leading in the race of snatching the former Instituto forward.
Paulo Dybala chances of ending up in Juventus are high as he is said to be fond of the club’s maestro Andre Pirlo. He claims to have grown up dreaming of playing alongside the legend one day, and his dreams might just come true provided Juventus bring a suitable offer to the negotiations table. Juventus director general, Giuseppe Marotta has been speaking with Palermo club president Maurizio Zamparini concerning the Forward. This much Marotta confirmed when he said;
“We are speaking with (Maurizio) Zamparini but the negotiations are difficult.”
Palermo values the Argentine at £35.9 million, and Juventus wants to pay lesser, hence a delay in the finalization of the deal. The prospective Serie A winner have dropped the bids to bring in Radamel Falcao, so all concentration seems to be on Dybala and Cavani.
Chelsea on the other hand has made a £28.8 million bid for Dybala. The special one is looking at strengthening his squad towards next season and the Argentine looks like his ideal striker. Amazingly, three other Epl clubs are also interested in the young forward. Arsene Wenger has of recent shown interest in bringing him to the Emirates, while the Red Devils and Meryersiders have also been keeping tab on the striker’s situation.
He is being compared with five-time Ballon d’or winner Lionel Messi. And Palermo president had this to say about him
“He’s not an out-and-out striker, but operates in every area of the field, like Messi.”
Obviously one of the most creative players in Serie A this season with more than 50 chances created on the field of play. Maurizio Zamparini has admitted that the forward’s chances of leaving Palermo this summer are very high. So now, the question is, where is he headed? England or right there in Italy where he claims he would love to stay since he had made a name for himself right there.
