Paulo Dybala seals Juventus transfer from Palermo for €32 million

Juventus have announced they have completed the signing of Paulo Dybala from Palermo for an initial fee of €32 million.

Dybala, 21, has penned a five-year contract with Juventus after scoring 13 Serie A goals for Palermo this season.

The Argentine joined Palermo from Argentine second division club Instituto in July 2012 for €12 million and scored 21 goals in 90 league appearances.

Dybala's form this campaign prompted club president Maurizio Zamparini to predict a better future for him than Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Juventus said in a statement: "A fee of €32 million, payable over four years, has been agreed, with a potential extra €8 million to be added on if certain performance-related targets are met."

Dybala joins an attack already boasting Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata and Fernando Llorente, as well as the emerging talent of Kingsley Coman.
