Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini expects to sell long-term Chelsea target Paulo Dybala in the summer.
Chelsea are just one of many clubs that are keen to nail down the young mans signature in the summer, as they seek to bolster their attack.
And amid talk that Dybala wants to leave, Zamparini has confessed that he may be forced to sell on.
“I find myself in the same situation with Dybala as with [Edinson] Cavani and [Javier] Pastore,” Zamparini told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“This year he has exploded, but I already knew that he was very good.
“The lad is now in the hands of some people who don’t wish him well. It’s difficult to see him staying at Palermo, maybe someone wants to take him away later, on a free transfer.
“This is the foolishness of FIFA, football is now in the hands of certain characters like agents and others who just want to make money.
“I don’t talk to him anymore, he has completely changed. There are people who are trying to involve him in strange situations.
“He’s a great lad, who has been corrupted by bad advice. Now he’s advised by people who only see him as money making tool and nothing else.”
