- Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri won’t be drawn into Paulo Dybala speculation
- The forward has been linked to PSG recently as well as Man United and Spurs
- He also said he will have to leave six players out of his Champions League squad
Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, who has been at the centre of transfer speculation, played for the last half hour against Atletico Madrid but coach Maurizio Sarri would not be drawn on whether the Argentine would be staying at the club.
Sarri, who has replaced Massimiliano Allegri, added that he would have to leave out at least six players from his Champions League squad to meet UEFA size requirements.
‘I can talk about Paulo all I like, but the market goes in a certain way and then whatever I say counts for nothing,’ Sarri told reporters.
There’s still no news on whether Paulo Dybala will be leaving Juventus this summer
Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri refused to be drawn into speculation about the Argentine
‘I think he has the right characteristics to play as a false centre forward. But in any case, we have to cut six players from the Champions League list.
‘Our situation is difficult, almost embarrassing, because we run the risk of leaving out players of a really high level.
‘It’s a situation we have to resolve and it is not just about the decisions made by coach or club.’
