Interested parties Arsenal and Manchester United could sign Paulo Dybala, admits Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini – but not until the summer.
We have been keeping a close eye on Dybala after his impressive performances in Serie A this season, with the 21-year-old scoring 10 league goals so far in 2014/15.
The Argentine had been linked with a January transfer, but whilst Zamparini thinks the starlet will go onto a bigger club one day, he expects him to stay until at least the end of the current campaign.
“Where do I see Dybala? Abroad. In order of likelihood, I’d say England, France, Germany and Spain,” the 73-year-old was quoted by the London Evening Standard.
“This week we’ll agree a contract renewal for three years, but if he carries on playing as he has done recently, a top club will come to sign him.

“Dybala is one of the best talents in the world, he’s a team player and he has three to five years of improvement in him. This renewal is also for his own good, because he is destined to play in a great team.”
Dybala joined Palermo from Instituto in his home country of Argentina in the summer of 2012, but only managed eight goals in 58 appearances in all competitions over the next two years.
Yet since his side’s return to the Italian top flight the South American seems to have found his scoring boots and has netted his 10 strikes in just 18 Serie A games.
