The 25-year-old is back in Turin with the Old Lady while his representatives are in negotiations at the Reds camp in Manchester. According to SKY SPORTS the Dybala representation was due to meet manager Maurizio Sarri and sporting director Fabio Paratici on Thursday afternoon to discuss his future. “Although it has been made clear to Dybala that the club need to sell players and he is seen as the biggest potential windfall, with that initially putting him off, he would still rather stay.” The Independence.
