Juventus have ruled out the possibility of selling talisman Paulo Dybala after admitting it would be 'difficult' to sign adequate replacements such as Lionel Messi or Neymar.
The Argentinian's future has come under speculation of late, with fuel being added to the fire as Dybala was left on the bench against Sassuolo, after the 25-year-old stormed off the pitch upon discovering he wasn't going to come on against Parma the week before.
Los Blancos have been reportedly monitoring the player's situation, with AS claiming the Spanish giants will look to sign the former Palermo playmaker in the summer for £105m. However, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has poured cold water over those rumours, claiming La Vecchia Signora simply won't be able to sign an adequate replacement.
"Those who leave are those who want to. I repeat, our squad is difficult to improve," he said, via 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."
In Serie A this term Dybala has only registered two goals and four assists in 20 outings, with his form of last year evading him thus far, where he bagged 22 league goals and five assists.
Massimiliano Allegri's side have broken their transfer record twice in the last three years, however, it would require significant funding to prise Messi away from Barcelona. Meanwhile, Neymar has been repeatedly linked with a move away from PSG, however should he leave the French capital it is more likely he would return to Spain.
