Max Allegri has declared that Paulo Dybala will remain at Juventus at least beyond this summer, despite several reports linking him with a sensational move to join La Liga giants. Barcelona.

The 23-year-old has been impressive since making the move to Juventus and has won Serie A in both of his seasons at the club so far, while his performances in the Champions League have brought him to wider attention.

 With Dybala’s playing style similar to that of his international team-mate in Lionel Messi who is also campaigning that he makes a switch to Spain, he has been linked with a potentially huge move to the Spanish club, although if Allegri’s words are anything to go by, the proposed transfer won’t be happening this summer if at all.

Speaking after Juventus’ 2-1 loss to Barcelona on Saturday night, the Juventus boss revealed that Dybala will be remaining with the Italian giants.

“Dybala had a good second half: he’s attached to the Juventus jersey and he’ll stay with us,” he said via Football Italia.
