Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has given a verdict on his transfer rumours.

The Argentinian’s name was linked with Manchester United and Tottenham, but both clubs failed to sign the player.

Dybala said it wasn’t a “nice thing” to be linked with clubs where he “didn’t want to go”.

The 25-year-old told Tuttosport: “It wasn’t an easy summer. 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 had already done an interview in which I said I wanted to stay in Turin, then I never spoke again: not even in America’s Cup and on holidays.”

The forward didn’t have any intention to leave Juventus. Yet, he wanted to improve his career in the Italian club.

“I think I can still give a lot and I showed a glimpse of that against Inter. That’s exactly what I wanted. Both me and Higuain – that’s what we want. I believe that the two of us spoke little of everything that happened, but we wanted to stay at Juventus and … well, look – we both have scored goals at Inter. It’s better to talk on the pitch with facts,” he added.
