Zamparini: '€40m offer for Dybala'

Maurizio Zamparini claims there is “already a €40m offer in my hand” for Palermo's Paulo Dybala, but is it Juventus or Manchester United?

The Argentine sensation is only 21 years old, but scored 12 Serie A goals in 25 games this season, along with eight assists.

“Has Dybala already been picked up by Juve? Absolutely not,” President Zamparini told Radio Due.

“I already have a €40m offer in my hand, but if someone else gets into the race then we’ll see what happens.

“Were Manchester United behind this offer? I won’t tell you the name of the club, not even if you torture me!”

As well as Juve and Manchester United, Roma are thought to be interested in striker Dybala.

“Anything can happen in football. The Giallorossi have good financial capabilities and it’s possible Walter Sabatini could take him away. We’ll see.”

Zamparini confirmed he’ll be in the stands at the Stadio Barbera for today’s game with Juventus, which kicks off at 17.00 GMT, but the notoriously superstitious patron won’t be watching.

“I am accompanying some Russian associates who are big football fans. After that I might stay on my own in a little room or go to pray to Santa Rosalia...”
