Juve have strong Dybala interest but foreign clubs also pressing – Palermo

Palermo vice-president Guglielmo Micicche has insisted the Old Lady could still sign the Argentine striker despite a lack of recent talks

Juventus still have a “strong interest” in signing Palermo striker Paulo Dybala, claims the Sicilian club’s vice-president Guglielmo Micicche.

The 21-year-old is the Old Lady’s primary target to add to their forward line ahead of the 2015-16 season, but there has also been reported interest shown by Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain.

And while Micicche has admitted that no talks have taken place recently, he insists Juve are still very much on the Dybala trail.

“There is no new news at the moment, but I can confirm a strong interest from Juventus,” Micicche told Tutto Juve.

“Our president Maurizio Zamparini is abroad at the moment, so we will wait for him until we return for more talks.

“It is not certain that discussions will close in the next week, although there will be telephone contact between Zamparini and Juventus’ Beppe Marotta at the weekend. We’re looking for a solution along with Dybala’s agent.”

Micicche added that Juve are not the only interested party.

“Juventus have a big chance, but there are also foreign clubs pressing. If there is more than one offer the same amount, it will be up to the player to decide which club he prefers.

“Juve are the only Italian club who are making a move in the Champions League, which is a fundamental requirement for him and something Milan and Inter cannot offer.”
