Paulo Dybala seals Juventus transfer from Palermo for €32 million
Juventus have announced they have completed the signing of Paulo Dybala from Palermo for an initial fee of €32 million.
Dybala, 21, has penned a five-year contract with Juventus after scoring 13 Serie A goals for Palermo this season.
The Argentine joined Palermo from Argentine second division club Instituto in July 2012 for €12 million and scored 21 goals in 90 league appearances.
Dybala's form this campaign prompted club president Maurizio Zamparini to predict a better future for him than Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Juventus said in a statement: "A fee of €32 million, payable over four years, has been agreed, with a potential extra €8 million to be added on if certain performance-related targets are met."
Dybala joins an attack already boasting Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata and Fernando Llorente, as well as the emerging talent of Kingsley Coman.
