Juventus have confirmed that Paulo Dybala has completed his transfer from Palermo, and the striker has signed a five-year contract with the Champions League finalists.
Dybala bid farewell to the Stadio Renzo Barbera crowd in their final home game of the campaign versus Fiorentina at the end of May, and his new club has now been confirmed.
Four Premier League sides: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United [Express], were all rumoured to have been interested in his signature, but the Italian giants have won the race.
The statement on their official website reads that a €32m fee has been agreed between the two Serie A sides – to be paid over four years – which could rise to €40m with add-ons.

The Argentine forward joined Palermo for €12m in 2012, and scored 21 goals in 90 appearances, with 13 of those strikes coming in the 2014-15 season.
The 21-year-old will now compete with Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata and Fernando Llorente for a position up top in Turin, and high hopes are placed on the shoulders of one of Europe’s most exciting young strikers.
