Cape Town - Palermo have told interested clubs that it will cost as much as £28.5 million to sign Argentina striker Paulo Dybala.

Maurizio Zamparini, the Serie A club's president, has told the Manchester clubs as well as all other interested parties that it will cost almost £30 million to sign Dybala, according to Goal.com.

Dybala, who has been scouted by several of Europe's top clubs, has been in the spotlight this season after scoring 12 goals, assisting 7 for his teammates, a standout season for Palermo.

"I value him at €40 million (£28.5m), but we will have to wait and see what happens at the end of the season." Zamparini told Radio Anch'io.

"There has been a lot of talk about Dybala, but his agent is just doing his work. I have a good relationship with him.

"The transfer fee we will receive for Dybala will be reinvested. We have an ongoing project. Even if Dybala were to leave, other important players will arrive."

Palermo look set to cash in on the player Zamparini describes as "the Messi of the future" as the starlet's contract expires at the end of next season.

Earlier in the season, Zamparini confirmed Manchester United's interest by saying: "Many foreign clubs asked after him, including Manchester United. I told the English side that he is not for sale right now, but we can talk about it again in six months.

"In my view, he is the best striker in Europe at the moment."
