Juventus star Paulo Dybala has been told he can leave Paulo Dybala ‘if he asks to’ amid interest from Manchester United.
Dybala continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford having caught United’s eye over the last 12 months.
Juve chief Giuseppe Marotta told Gazzetta dello Sport: "He’s a very strong player, on which we aim a lot.
"But Dybala will undoubtedly remain at Juve, also because we do not need to sell anyone, unless the same player asks."
Sanchez edges closer to United move
Alexis Sanchez has been pushed another step closer to the exit door after being frozen out from training for Arsenal’s clash with Crystal Palace.
Sanchez trained at Arsenal’s London Colney HQ today but away from the first team group getting ready for Saturday’s clash with Palace.
It effectively signals the end for Sanchez as he trained normally on Wednesday and even last Saturday before being axed for the trip to Bournemouth 24 hours later.
But Arsenal are now planning for life without Sanchez as they hope the player-plus-cash deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan to go through on Friday – but may miss the 12 noon deadline for them to play on Saturday.
Mkhitaryan’s agent Mino Raiola is meeting with Arsenal chiefs this evening to thrash out the finer details.
