There will be no last-minute transfer of Paulo Dybala from Juventus this summer.

According to Sky Sports and its associates in Italy, the player is set to stay in Turin.

There has been much speculation of Dybala’s future this summer.

It all started when he was part of a swap deal between Juventus and United for Romelu Lukaku.

The deal was done except for the fact Manchester United refused to meet the financial demands of the Argentine player.

Then came the turn of Tottenham Hotspurs. Yet again the player’s financial demands are thought to have been the cause of that deal to breakdown.

There has since been plenty of talks once it became apparent that Juventus had a price and were willing to consider parting with Dybala.

PSG enquired about him, all subject to them selling Neymar.

There were even rumours of him being part of a cash plus player deal for Neymar to Juve.

Dybala made his first appearance for the Bianconeri this Saturday in a 4-3 win over Napoli.

While it was only a short-lived 14-minute cameo appearance, it does seem to be a sign that the club has changed their stance.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has now publicly confirmed their intentions.

He said:

“We can absolutely rule out Dybala leaving this summer. We can exclude that as a possibility.”

“This is a club that leaves a good impression, as often players want to come back when they have left, most recently Gigi Buffon and Leonardo Bonucci.”

“There are people who brought a great deal to the club, not just to the team or what happened on the field.”

“Let’s not forget, Juventus have been top of the Serie A table for 3,000 days and these players are always the first to arrive for training and the last to leave.”
