Man United & Arsenal given green light to land ‘new Aguero’

Arsenal and Manchester United have been handed a major boost in the race for Serie A sensation Paulo Dybala, with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini having opened the door for a summer deal.

The Argentinian star has been one of Italian’s football’s top performers this term, smashing 11 goals for the pink-clad side.

His performances have, naturally, alerted a host of top clubs, with United and Arsenal among the chasing pack.

And despite his potential at the age of 21 and importance to Palermo, Zamparini has suggested that the advice of those close to his career has made it nearly impossible to keep him at the club past the end of the season:

“This year he has exploded, but I already knew that he was very good.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.

“The boy is now in the hands of some people who don’t wish him well. It’s difficult to see him staying at Palermo.

“He’s a great lad, who has been corrupted by bad advice. Now he’s advised by people who only see him as money making tool and nothing else.

“Dybala is worth over €40m but I won’t sell him until June. Many foreign clubs asked after him, including Manchester United.

“I told the English side that he is not for sale right now, but we can talk about it again in six months. In my view, he is the best striker in Europe at the moment.”

Although effective as a striker, the pacey South American has also been deployed on the flanks and can operate in behind a main centre-forward.

Dybala has only been in Italy since 2012 and is yet to be capped by his nation at any level.
