Juve's Paulo Dybala could have joined AC Milan but for Galliani - Zamparini

AC Milan missed out on the signing of Paulo Dybala due to the "antics" of their general manager Adriano Galliani, according to Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini.

Zamparini says that the Rossoneri were in pole position to sign Dybala, who has since scored 12 goals for Juventus after joining them last summer.

Galliani's games saw Milan miss out and Zamparini has warned him to be more careful if he wishes to sign Franco Vazquez from Palermo at the end of the season.

"I'm going to be talking about Vazquez in May or June," Zamparini told milannews.it. "I'd be delighted to sell him to Milan, but the important thing is that Galliani doesn't get up to any of his antics because it was his antics which lost him Dybala. Without those antics, Dybala was his."

Zamparini expects to sell midfield star Vazquez for €30 million, and he revealed there is interest from other clubs in the Italy international.

"That's the sum we are looking at, which is fair considering the market," Zamparini said. "When Milan are interested, they will ask me for him. At the moment, the Rossoneri have not asked me, but other clubs have.

"But Galliani once told me that they were still interested, three or four months ago, so let's see what happens.

"Obviously if he does want to reserve him, he's going to have to speak with me and not the newspapers."

Juve paid €32 million for Dybala, who has proven to be a hit in Turin this season as the replacement for Carlos Tevez after joined Boca Juniors.
