Marotta: Juve received no bid from Barca for Dybala

Signed as a hot prospect from Palermo in 2015, Dybala has had a hand in 67 goals in just 99 appearances for the Bianchoneri.

Did you spot it? I'm not having anyone saying that he didn't mean it either; anything Paulo Dybala produces on a football is definitely deliberate.

The 23-year-old Argentinian starred for Juventus last season as they won Serie A and reached the Champions League final, but agent Raiola, who does not represent Dybala, believes he will leave the club soon, and that Real Madrid or the Premier League could be his next destination.

It was reported during the summer that Juventus had received an offer of roughly €160m from Barcelona for their star man Paolo Dybala, with the Argentine forward highly thought of in Catalonia.

'I think Dybala will eventually leave Juve, ' said Raiola.

Raiola's relationship with AC Milan also soured this summer after he pushed for a move for young goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, but he claims he doesn't have a problem with the board. "I'd see him doing very well at Real Madrid or in Manchester, either City or United".

Allegri pointed out that some of his worldwide players returned only on Thursday from their World Cup qualifying matches, giving him little time to get his team ready.

However, Barcelona were unable to convince Juventus of allowing Dybala to link up with his compatriot, Lionel Messi, at the Camp Nou.

And while Dybala seems happy at Juventus for now question marks will always persist about his long-term future.
