Juventus have put Premier League outfits on red alert by admitting the lack of certainty around the future of Paulo Dybala.
Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham have all been linked with the Argentine star ahead of the summer transfer window.
Dybala’s deal expires in 2022 but injury problems are hampering his chances of signing a fresh contract in the coming weeks.
Juventus senior figure Fabio Paratici has admitted that the club are concerned by the former Palermo ace’s fitness woe.
Talks over a new deal are taking place but could continue for ‘months’. Fabio said: “Paulo still has a few problems – it’s like he’s on a swing.
“Some days he’s better and others he’s worse. He seemed okay [last week], then he felt some pain again.
“We have spoken [about this contract], we have been speaking and will continue to speak in the next few days and months.”
It is thought that the reigning Serie A champions will sell the attacker if he cannot agree a fresh deal by the summer.
Elsewhere, Manchester United have allegedly slapped a £40 million price tag on the head of the English star Dean Henderson.
The 23-year-old has thus far been unable to displace the Spanish stopper David de Gea as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s number one, and he is said to be growing frustrated at the situation.
Dean has been restricted to a mere 12 appearances across all competitions this term and he is being mentioned with a move to another European-challenging club amid his lack of game time.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Dean will attempt to force an exit if his situation doesn’t improve, and United will allow the player to head elsewhere if they receive a sum of £40m.
