Paulo Dybala set for Juventus exit as Sarri confirms he must axe SIX players from Champions League squad


PAULO DYBALA faces a Juventus exit after manager Maurizio Sarri revealed six players from his Champions League squad must be axed to meet Uefa size requirements.

A max of 25 players, two that must be keepers, are allowed in a Champions League squad leaving the Serie A champions needing to trim their side.

Wantaway forward Dybala could be one of those cut from the team, amid speculation about his future in Turin.

Sarri said: “I can talk about Paulo all I like, but the market goes in a certain way and then whatever I say counts for nothing.

“I think he has the right characteristics to play as a false centre forward. But in any case, we have to cut six players from the Champions League list.

“Our situation is difficult, almost embarrassing, because we run the risk of leaving out players of a really high level.

“It’s a situation we have to resolve and it is not just about the decisions made by coach or club.”

It is understood Dybala is seeking a new challenge this season after four years with Juve, winning the Serie A in each season.

Lukaku is now third in the most expensive player ever in terms of total fees

Manchester United agreed a deal to sign the 25-year-old this summer, but Old Trafford chiefs were unwilling to meet the forward’s wage demands.

With no Champions League football at United next season Dybala demanded £350,000 a week and a £13million agent fees.

After snubbing Old Trafford Tottenham swooped in and agreed a deal with Juve for the Argentine.

However, the deal collapsed and Dybala has since been linked with a move to French champions PSG.
