Juventus vice-president Pavel Nedved has confirmed Paulo Dybala is being courted amid speculation linking him with a move to England.

The 25-year-old Argentine forward joined the Bianconeri from Palermo in 2015 and subsequently became a shining light as they firmly cemented their domestic supremacy.

However, with competition for places and Juve needing to balance the books, they are reportedly listening to offers for his signature with Premier League outfits Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur among those reported to be keen on his services.

Dybala’s present deal with Juve expires in June 2022, but there’s a chance of him not fulfilling that commitment. Any hypothetical transfer would surely see the Italian champions make a profit on the £36m they initially paid for him as a significantly higher price is being suggested to snare him away.

Despite being one of their more prolific names – 78 goals across 182 official matches to date – vice-president Nedved, who served the club as a player, has revealed Dybala has been attracting interest this summer.
