Juventus have made Paulo Dybala available for sale this summer, but will only facilitate any potential move for an extremely lucrative fee.

The Argentine came so close to departing Turin last summer following a disappointing campaign in Massimiliano Allegri's final season at the helm. Many reports suggested issues regarding Dybala's image rights thwarted a move to Tottenham, while Manchester United were also interested in signing the 26-year-old.

Dybala, however, bounced back in tremendous fashion last term to spearhead the Bianconeri's ninth Scudetto triumph on the spin with 22 goal contributions in 33 Serie A encounters.

But, following the sacking of Maurizio Sarri and arrival of novice Andrea Pirlo, La Joya's future in Turin has been thrust into doubt once more, with Gazzetta Dello Sport (via the Daily Express) claiming Pirlo and Juve are willing to see the back of the Argentine - providing any interested clubs meet their £100m valuation of the player.

The new Bianconeri boss - who took the job just nine days after being appointed the head coach of the Under 23's side - is ready to offload players who he doesn't believe will fit his system and Dybala's supposedly a part of that list.

Aaron Ramsey is another star who's been linked with a move away following Pirlo's appointment, while it's also been reported that the former suave Italian regista is keen to shift Gonzalo Higuain, Sami Khedira, Daniele Rugani and Mattia De Sciglio this summer.

Despite recent reports out of Italy, Fabrizio Romano understands Juve aren't planning to sell Dybala, with Pirlo said to be a fan of the Argentine.

La Joya was widely expected to sign a new contract at the Allianz Stadium this summer, extending his deal to 2024 or possibly 2025, with just a final agreement missing.

Tuttosport now reports that renewal talks are on hold for the moment - at least until after the summer - as Dybala has demanded a €15m salary, while the Bianconeri are only prepared to offer €8m plus bonuses.
