Sarri talks up Dybala; Juve to trim UCL squad list

Sarri addresses Dybala exit claims; Juve to omit six players from Champions League squad list

The Bianconeri head coach has shed light on the fate of the Argentine striker.

Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri has refused to be drawn into the rumors surrounding the future of Argentine striker Paulo Dybala. The 60-year-old Italian manager has however revealed that his side aims to omit six players from this season's UEFA Champions League squad list.

Dybala is said to be on the fringes at Juve ahead of the upcoming Serie A season and, as a result, has been been lined up for a transfer away this summer. Prior to the closure of the English transfer window, the 25-year-old forward saw purported moves to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fall through, and while the number of suitors have momentarily reduced, the Argentine could still head for the exit door.

With the player's future still up in the air, his manager Maurizio Sarri insists that anything could happen due to the unpredictability of the transfer window. The ex-Chelsea manager subsequently added that his team seeks to shorten its squad list for this season's UEFA Champions League, a decision which could well affect Dybala's chances of staying in Turin. 

"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 as per UK's Daily Mail.

"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."

With Juventus looking to offload Dybala this summer, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain has emerged as the newest club to establish interest in securing the service of the Argentine striker. Les Parisiens have reportedly offered the player £11 million annual salary to lure him to France.
