Barcelona chief rules out Dybala move

Barcelona technical secretary Robert Fernandez has ended rumours that Paulo Dybala has been targeted as a replacement for Neymar at the end of the season.

Rumours were sparked in the British media during the January transfer window after the Brazil international confirmed his desire to one day feature in the English Premier League, with Manchester United mooted as a possibly destination.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been mentioned after the reports of unrest, but Fernandez quickly dispelled the claims after speaking to RAC1; "[Neymar] He is totally untransferable."

After mentioning in no uncertain terms about the former Santos forward's future, the Blaugrana chief went on to deny that Juventus forward Dybala could be on his way to the Camp Nou.

The Argentine international recently penned a new  £110,000-a-week deal until 2022 after his match-winning display at the Juventus Stadium knocked Luis Enrique's side out of the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

His first-half brace helped the Old Lady to a 3-0 aggregate win over the two-legs that effectively started drawing comparisons to his compatriot Lionel Messi.

"He (Dybala) is a magnificent player, but we already have the best three [forwards] in the world," the 54-year-old said.
