Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini has revealed he is in negotiations with an unnamed club over the transfer of Paulo Dybala.
There has been various reports linking Dybala with moves to the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea this season.
Zamparini has done little to quell these rumours and has instead talked up Dybala in an attempt to drive up his price.
He has revealed in his latest summary to the press that he is in negotiations to sell Dybala but stopped short of naming the buying club.
Speaking about Dybala’s future, Zamparini said: “I’m moving ahead with negotiations. We’re evaluating a series of offers in a calm manner for the good of the lad’s future, we’ve got plenty of time.
“Dybala’s agent, Pierpaolo Triulzi, is a very good person. I met him in Rome and we discussed things man-to-man.
“Of course, replacing him [Dybala] will not be easy. We’re looking for players from abroad to create a stronger team than the current one.”
The latest revelations from Zamparini has kept Dybala’s transfer saga bubbling on. The way the 73-year-old openly speaks about Dybala is almost becoming a story in itself.
The young Argentine must be a very good player if clubs are willing to put up with the president’s frequent briefs to the press. Dybala currently has 12 goals in 25 games, earning comparisons with Lionel Messi. Who from? Zamparini, of course.
