Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici rules out summer exit for Paulo Dybala amid late interest from Paris Saint-Germain

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has ruled out a last-minute summer exit for Paulo Dybala.

The Argentina forward was heavily linked with Manchester United and Tottenham last month as both potential moves fell through.

And with the European transfer window remaining open until Monday, there had been reports of late interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

But Paratici told Sky Italia: “We can absolutely rule out Dybala leaving this summer. We can exclude that as a possibility.

“This is a club that leaves a good impression, as often players want to come back when they have left, most recently Gigi Buffon and Leonardo Bonucci.

“There are people who brought a great deal to the club, not just to the team or what happened on the field.

“Let’s not forget, Juventus have been top of the Serie A table for 3,000 days and these players are always the first to arrive for training and the last to leave.”

Manchester United tried to sign Dybala as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who ended up joining Inter Milan in a £72million deal.

However, the Red Devils were put off by the forward’s huge wage demands.

Meanwhile, Tottenham looked set to sign Dybala on transfer deadline day, only for Juventus to pull the plug on a deal.

Dybala made his first appearance of the season for Juventus in the club’s 4-3 win over Napoli on Saturday.

The 25-year-old was a 76th-minute substitute as Juve needed an injury-time Kalidou Koulibaly own goal to win the game after squandering a 3-0 lead.
