Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini believes striker Paulo Dybala has the potential to be as good as Lionel Messi, but will only let him go for the right price.
“For me, Dybala is the Messi of the future,” Zamparini told Radio Anch’io.
“I value him at €40 million (£28.5m), but we will have to wait and see what happens at the end of the season.
“There has been a lot of talk about Dybala, but his agent is just doing his work. I have a good relationship with him.
“The transfer fee we will receive for Dybala will be reinvested. We have an ongoing project. Even if Dybala were to leave, other important players will arrive.”
Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United have all been linked to the striker.
