Juventus ​have dismissed speculation linking Paulo Dybala with a move to Manchester United.

The Argentine striker has attracted rumours in recent weeks linking him with a transfer to Old Trafford.

But despite the departure of Massimiliano Allegri, Juve have been quick to emphasise the player’s importance to the club.

Sporting director Fabio Paratici insists he remains a key member of the team no matter who replaces Allegri this summer.

He said: “He is one of our players, we have great confidence in him.

“The investment we made four years ago and the renewal of the contract is proof of this.

“Dybala is a Juventus player, a very important player for us.”

Dybala himself also vowed to remain in Turin.

“[Juventus director of sport Fabio] Paratici knows what I want to do next year – to keep playing here,” he said.

“Paratici knows that next year I want to continue here. Then it doesn’t depend on me.

Paulo Dybala is reportedly a transfer target for Manchester United

“Juventus must make its choices with the coach that will come. But society knows it – next year I want to stay here.

“I have a lot of respect for this shirt and for these fans, and because of this I will only talk about Juventus, not about other teams, because that seems to me a lack of respect.”
