Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini confirmed Paulo Dybala is in talks with PSG, but asked for €50m.
The Argentine is on the market and has been linked with the likes of Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Inter, Milan and Arsenal.
“Dybala is the new Leo Messi,” Zamparini told Telefoot in France.
“Today if you wanted to buy Messi, how much would he cost? €200m? €300m? Even then he wouldn’t be available.
“Dybala’s representatives have already gone to Paris for talks with PSG. The player is a little worried about going there, because they already have so many big champions.
“I am in contact with Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the player’s agent. He’d be a good investment for PSG’s future.
“I would like to sell Dybala for €40m, but I asked Nasser for €50m!”
