Palermo “turned down Manchester United” offers for Paulo Dybala and rate the Argentine at “over €40m.”
The 21-year-old has scored nine Serie A goals and provided seven assists in 17 games this season, attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.
“Dybala is worth over €40m, but I won’t sell him until June,” President Maurizio Zamparini told Radio Due.
“Many foreign clubs asked after him, including Manchester United. I told the English side that he is not for sale right now, but we can talk about it again in six months.
“In my view, he is the best striker in Europe at the moment.”
Palermo invested heavily in Dybala, signing him from Argentine club Instituto for €12m when he was just 18.
He is now valued at over €40m (£31m) by the Sicilian club, whose previous players include Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore.
Zamparini also revealed Franco Vazquez “has just signed a renewal and I will not sell him to Juventus. In fact, I won’t sell him at all.”
