Tuttosport’s cover on Friday ran with Juventus wanting to pair Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo
Neymar, who is yet to feature for PSG this season while the club sorted his future, pushed for an exit all summer but the focus remained on a return to Spain.
Dybala appeared to be the domino that would set other moves in motion after moves to Manchester United and Tottenham collapsed earlier in the month.
But Dybala went on to dig his heels in and remain with Ronaldo in Turin, which saw any bid for Neymar ended due to a lack of other viable negotiating chips.
The Tuttosport report goes on to say that even with Dybala as part of Juventus’ offering, PSG rejected the offer as they held out for more money for Neymar, having spent £198m to acquire him from Barcelona two years ago.
