Palermo striker Paulo Dybala has announced that he will join Juventus this summer, despite attracting interest from the Premier League clubs, Manchester United.
The Argentine international, whose contract set to expire in June 2016 – have been extensively linked with both Manchester United and Arsenal, but the 21-year-old has revealed his departure from Palermo to join the reigning Italian champions next season.
“Juventus are the team that wanted me most,” Dybala told to Sky Sport Italia as quoted by Goal.
“They made a great effort to sign me and I have chosen them for this reason. I’ve grown a lot in these last few years at Palermo and I think that I can grow even more at Juventus. I can still improve so much.
“I will give my all to show that Juve have done right spending all of this money on me. When I arrived at Palermo, they said that they spent too much on me. However, with time I replicated what I had done in Argentine. Now, it will be same.”
The Red Devils have already secured their first summer signing – Memphis Depay and are expected to re-build their squad when the transfer window opens this summer.
Dybala has impressed hugely during his 3rd Serie A season by scoring 13 goals in 35 games. He will undergo medical in Turin on coming days ahead of his reported £28m move, Tuttosport claim.
