Dybala Explains Why He Stayed At Juve After Man Utd Rumours

After rejecting moves to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur a few months ago, Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala has reportedly revealed his reasons for choosing to stay at the Bianconeri despite the club wanting to sell him.

Reports: Messi Could Be Banned From Playing Against English Clubs

The Argentine's signature appeared up for grabs before the 2019/20 season got under way, with United and Spurs both tipped as favourites to sign the 25-year-old.

Dybala, however, was desperate to stay in Turin and prove he could work his way into Maurizio Sarri's plans for the club.

The attacking midfielder has now opened up about his decision to reject a transfer away from Juventus, insisting that he did not want to leave the Italian champions.

"It wasn't an easy summer," Dybala told Corriere della Sera.

"Hearing your name linked to every team and every place, where you don't want to go, isn't a nice thing.

"But this is football, even if before the transfer window opened, I said: 'I want to stay here'. I think it was more important to let the pitch do the talking, even if, until the last day, no one knew what would happen.

"I wanted to stay, I wanted to play here and continue my career at Juve. I think I can still give a lot and I showed a glimpse of that against Inter. I feel less weight on my shoulders and very calm mentally.

"I was convinced that with (Maurizio) Sarri, I'd start to have fun, work and prove what I'm worth. And that's what I'm trying to do. Sarri and (Massimiliano) Allegri have different ways of playing, and it shows.

"With Allegri we did so many things, but I think we play a bit more attacking with Sarri and we play the ball more.

"After that, of course, we'll have to see what happens during the season. My goal was important, for the team and I, to score at that moment, for how we got to the game.

"They'd never lost in the league and now we're the only unbeaten team in Europe: when it comes to Juventus, sometimes you need to have a bit of respect."

Messi 420, Ronaldo 419

Dybala has contributed to four goals in seven games since the start of the season, but has completed 90 minutes on just one occasion.
