Juventus have ruled out selling Paulo Dybala in the summer amid reported interest from the Premier League.

The Argentina international has been linked with a move to Manchester United on a regular basis over the past six months.

A report in the British media earlier this week suggested that Dybala was one of three targets for Manchester United this summer.

Chelsea FC have also been touted as potential suitors in the past following the South American’s excellent performances in Serie A.

Dybala’s future has been the source of speculation after Juventus signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer.

However, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has rubbished talk of Dybala leaving the Serie A champions at the end of the season.

“Those who leave are those who want to. I repeat, our squad is difficult to improve,” Paratici told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Who do you get that is better than Dybala? It’s difficult to sign Messi. Even with Neymar I’d have doubts.

“Dybala is someone who is always there, until the end.”

Dybala has been a key part of Juve’s success in recent seasons after his move to the Serie A champions from Palermo in 2015.

The Argentina forward has netted 54 times in 118 games in the Italian top flight for Juventus.

Dybala has won three Serie A titles and three Coppa Italia trophies during his four-season spell in Turin.

Manchester United could do with some top talent after a humbling 2-0 loss to Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash on Tuesday night.
