Reigning Serie A Champions Juventus are reportedly adamant on holding on to their star striker Paulo Dybala, and latest reports suggest that they won’t sell him to Man United in the January transfer window.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the Argentina international, with the most recent reports hinting at a potential £60 million move.
However, as per Independent, the Turin-based outfit has absolutely ‘no intention of selling Paulo Dybala to United or anyone else in January’.

Also, the £60m bid the Red Devils have supposedly put up has been ridiculed by Juve, making it clear that they would only entertain an offer if it’s in the range of €150 million (£140m).
United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing in quality attackers to strengthen his squad, and has stated that the Old Trafford giants certainly needs to shed off more cash if they wish to challenge city rivals and current league leaders Man City.
Meanwhile, Dybala’s entourage understands that a move to England would be a step in the right direction for the star forward, but as of now, there’s no rush to leave Turin, in spite of the 24-year-old enduring a difficult season.
If the European powerhouses do end up getting involved in a bidding war for Dybala, Juve might even end up with a sum close to the £200 million which Paris Saint-Germain paid to acquire the services of Neymar from Barca.
