Dybala settled to live in Turin again after Maurizio Sarri replaced Massimiliano Allegri.

Dybala was close to Juve exit amid Man Utd and Spurs interest.


Paulo Dybala has revealed he was close to leaving Serie A champions Juventus last summer amid interest from Premier League clubs Manchester United and Tottenham.


The Red Devils and the Lilywhites both bid for the 26-year-old striker in the summer, but a move failed to materialised.


The Argentina international, who has two years left on his current deal, said he thought he had no future with Juve until Maurizio Sarri was named as Massimiliano Allegri's successor.


Former England international insists Man Utd rushed into appointing Solskjaer.


"I was close to leaving. That was in the club's thinking, I knew. Until the last minute, we were waiting," Dybala told The Guardian.


"I have two years left on my contract. That's not a short time but it's not a long one either. We'll see what plans Juventus have, if they think I might leave in the next market or if they want me to stay.


"That's a decision for the club to make. It's hard to know because things change in a second.


"But I'm here, at a club that has treated me well. I'm happy, comfortable. [Maurizio] Sarri's arrival has helped. He wanted me to stay, which gave me strength when we didn't know what would happen. I knew he could teach me, help me bring out the best in myself."
