Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini says Paulo Dybala is the ‘Messi of the future’ and will cost €40m.
“We’re close to being mathematically safe, then we’ll see where we can go,” Zamparini told Radio Anch’io Sport.
“Dybala was spoiled by some messages, but an agent does their job, and I have a good relationship with him.
“For me, Dybala is the Messi of the future, his valuation is worth at least €40m, but let’s see what happens.
“The amount that we sell the Argentinian for will obviously be reinvested. [Coach Beppe] Iachini will remain as long as we have a project, even with Dybala going, major players will arrive.
"Iachini assures me I can buy footballers on a budget suited to our current economic climate.”
