Juventus club shop removes Paulo Dybala shirts from shelves as striker closes in on Inter Milan move
The official JUVENTUS club store has removed the Paulo Dybala jerseys from the shelves.
The 28-year-old playmaker is set to move to bitter rivals Inter Milan.
Dybala is out of contract with Juve this summer and last month confirmed he would be leaving the club with an emotional goodbye after seven years in Turin.
He didn’t officially become a free agent until June 30.
But Juventus have taken the decision to stop stocking the ‘Dybala 10’ kits on their website as soon as they get closer to a release.
Meanwhile, Federico Bernardeschi, Giorgio Chiellini and Alvaro Morata shirts remain on sale, although the trio are also set to leave next month.
Football Italia claim the decision could be because the club feel betrayed by Dybala’s decision to join rivals Inter.
Alternatively, Juve could be eager to release the number for Paul Pogba, who is widely expected to join the Serie A giants.
There had been interest in Dybala from the Premier League in the form of Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal.
But it is Inter who appear to be the current favorites for his signature.

Reports earlier this month claimed that Dybala had held direct talks with Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti over a possible move.
Zanetti reportedly flew to London to meet compatriot Dybala before and after Argentina’s 3-0 win over Italy at Wembley.
In total, he played 293 games for Juve, scoring 115 goals and providing an additional 48 assists.
He won Serie A five times in Turin and also won the Italian Cup four times.
