Zamp: ‘Milan could have had Dybala’

Maurizio Zamparini reveals Milan could have had Paulo Dybala but joint-CEO Adriano Galliani was “playing games”.

The Argentinian striker joined Juventus for a €40m fee this summer, and scoring 12 goals and providing eight assists in Serie A so far.

The Rossoneri have been linked with a move for another Rosanero talent, Franco Vazquez, and the club President warns them not to mess around.

“Right now we’re not thinking about the transfer market, but Palermo’s performance yesterday,” Zamparini told MilanNews.

“I’m very angry, we need to focus on staying up.

“We’ll speak about Vazquez in May or June, I’d be happy to sell him to Milan, but the important thing is that Galliani doesn’t try to be too clever, because he lost Dybala by playing games.

“If he hadn’t tried to get smart, Dybala was his.

“Would Vazquez cost €30m? Yes, it’d be about that, that’s normal when you look at the market. Right now the Rossoneri haven’t made an offer, but other clubs have.

“Galliani told me three or four months ago that he’s still interested. Let’s see what happens.

“It’s clear that if he wants to get him, he has to talk to me and not the papers.”
