Cape Town - The president of Serie A club Palermo has suggested that striker Paulo Dybala is too expensive for Italian clubs. 

talkSPORT reports that Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has ruled out a Serie A move for the young striker.

The 21-year-old Argentina striker has seen his stock rise considerably this season after banging in nine goals for the Rosanero in 17 Serie A appearances.

Dybala was purchased for just £9 million from Instituto back in his homeland in 2012, but Zamparini values Dybala over three times that amount following his exploits this season.

"Paulo Dybala, although very young is one of the best strikers in the world," Zamparini said.

"His future? The problem is not the boy but his agents. I am sorry for this. I've been to London and I have received calls from all over Europe.

"I would be happy Napoli bought him, but I don't think he is within their reach. Dybala is out of reach of all Italian companies."

Dybala has been linked with a move to Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Zamaparini confirmed the Red Devils interest in Dybala in the January transfer window.

"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."
