Milan - Palermo striker Paulo Dybala has hinted he would prefer a move to Juventus, potentially ending the hopes of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea to lure the Argentinian starlet away from Serie A.
Dybala is one of the hottest properties in Italy's top flight, scoring 13 league goals so far, creating several more and hitting the woodwork several times for the Sicily-based side.
Amid reported interest from some of Europe's top clubs, including PSG and Chelsea, Palermo owner and president Mauro Zamparini has slapped a 40m euro ($43m) price tag on the 21-year-old.
However Juventus are believed to have offered 32m euros during recent negotiations and Dybala admitted in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday his desire to play alongside Italian legend Andrea Pirlo.
"I love Italy. This is the country that made me famous and I would love to stay in Serie A," Dybala said.
"There are some big teams out there who don't play in Champions League but I can't deny that I'd love to play in Europe's most prestigious competition."
Dybala, who admitted he doesn't "speak a word of English or French", admitted playing alongside a "genius" like Pirlo would make his life at Juventus easier.
"It's a lot easier for a striker when you have a playmaker like Pirlo behind you. He makes even the most difficult things look easy," added the Argentinian.
"His genius was plain to see against Monaco in the Champions League. His pass eventually led to the penalty. Obviously Alvaro Morata played a role in it, but the move all started with Pirlo."
Palermo sit 11th in Serie A, 32 points behind leaders Juventus.
