Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has claimed that a club has bid £30m for talented forward Paulo Dybala, but refused to disclose their name.
The young Argentine forward has been in superb form this season for Italian side Palermo, scoring 12 goals in 25 games so far, gaining interest from a high number of top European clubs.
Manchester United, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Man City and Arsenal have all been interested, and it is the latter who have been leading interest after talks with the players officials over the winter period.
Barcelona are also said to be keen, with Dybala recently claiming that he would ‘swim to Barcelona if they came knocking’.
And, Zamparini has further added to speculation, by saying: “Has Dybala already been picked up by Juve? Absolutely not.
“I already have a €40m (£30m) offer in my hand, but if someone else gets into the race then we’ll see what happens. Were Manchester United behind this offer? I won’t tell you the name of the club, not even if you torture me!”
