Sporting director Fabio Paratici refused to rule out a potential exit for Paulo Dybala given the depth of the current Juventus squad.

After moves to Manchester United and Tottenham fell through, Dybala stayed put for a fifth season with Juventus.

And things in Turin appear to be improving despite the 25-year-old’s initial struggles under Maurizio Sarri. In fact, he’s started five of Juventus’ last seven games ahead of fellow Argentine Gonzalo Higuain.

Dybala also scored both goals on Tuesday night to seal the Bianconeri a 2-1 Champions League win over Lokomotiv Moscow.

However, speaking during a meeting with shareholders, Paratici revealed that the club may still be open to future offers for Dybala.

“We must be alert to incoming and outgoing opportunities, be careful and make the right assessments,” said Paratici, according to CalcioMercato.

“This applies to Dybala and the other players.

“The level of our squad has grown. In general, there are fewer players in the world who can play on our team, even Italians. This is easy to understand.”

Dybala has managed three goals and assists in nine appearances across all competitions this season. He is currently under contract at Juventus until June 2022.

Although the Argentina international reiterated his desire to stay put in Turin once again earlier this week.

Should things not go his way, however, Dybala won’t be short of options when looking for a new club.

It’s likely United and Spurs could revisit their interest given their respective struggles this season. Paris Saint-Germain, meanwhile, also reportedly expressed an interest in the striker during the summer.
