Reports linking Paulo Dybala with a move away from Juve are rumours, according to Andrea Pirlo.

Updated: Sep 8, 2020

Dybala has been heavily linked with a move away from Juventus over the past year, but Pirlo insists the forward is not for sale.

Andrea Pirlo has quashed rumours suggesting Paulo Dybala will move away from Juventus this summer by saying 'he has never been on the market'.

The new Juve boss Pirlo also confirmed Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain is set to leave the Serie A giants.

Pirlo was appointed as Maurizio Sarri's successor following Juve's Champions League last-16 exit at the hands of Ligue club Lyon.

"He has never been on the market, it is you [the media] who make these rumours," Pirlo said of Dybala when he was introduced to the media on Tuesday.

"For me, he is as important as the others. As soon as he returns [from the off-season] he will be part of the project."

Pirlo confirmed Higuain will be leaving the Turin, adding that midfielder Sami Khedira's future will be sorted after he recovers from a thigh injury.

"I talked to Higuain. He is a person I admire very much. He had an important cycle here, he was a great player but in speaking with him we decided our roads must separate," said Pirlo.

"He was a great champion but cycles end. He was sidelined but as a serious person we spoke to each other to make this decision.

"As for Khedira, he is injured. We'll see when he gets better."
