Zamparini: ‘€40m for Dybala’

Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini wants €40m for Paulo Dybala, and warns Juventus he won’t accept any players in exchange.

The forward has been heavily linked with the Bianconeri, with speculation that the Old Lady would offer €25m plus several players for the Argentinian.

However, the Rosanero patron has poured cold water on that idea, as well as revealing he’s rejected offers of €35m from teams abroad, with Arsenal believed to be interested.

“We don’t want players in exchange, only cash,” Zamparini told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“The player is worth €40m, even though there have been offers from foreign teams of €35m. We need to look after Palermo’s budget and accounts.”

The colourful owner also discussed Dybala’s strike partner Franco Vazquez, who would be available for around half the price.

“His future depends on what offers arrive. Give me €20m and he can go.

“Napoli? If [President] Aurelio [De Laurentiis] is willing to shell out €20m it can be done. Do you think I’m exaggerating?

“[Stevan] Jovetic was sold for the same amount, and to me there’s no comparison between the two.”
