Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini reckons Paulo Dybala could be on the move pretty soon when asked about the future of the Argentinian star.

The 77-year-old, who saw Dybala leave Palermo for Juventus in 2015, believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival makes Dybala’s departure inevitable.

“In January I think he will go to Spain,” he said.

”Every time he doesn’t play, when he’s on the bench, it’s because of the ‘phenomenon.’

”It’s easy for him to become the phenomenon, and I sent Dybala a message two years ago to advise him to go to Spain, where he can play football, and not to continue on the bench in Italy.

”He has offers from Spain and England, and Juventus have many champions so it’s difficult to play all of them at once.”

Of course this suggesting isn’t without reason, Dybala did mention that he was eager to play for Barcelona. So much so in fact that he even said he would swim to the club back before he joined Juventus.

“Would I be open to a move to Barcelona? I would swim to Barcelona if they came knocking,”

”I wouldn’t even have to change into my swimming gear. After all, I would only have to cross the Mediterranean Sea...”
