Juventus want Paulo Dybala and Edinson Cavani but rule out Falcao

Juventus are keen to sign Paulo Dybala and Edinson Cavani but cannot afford Radamel Falcao's wages, according to general manager Beppe Marotta.

Juve are currently looking to strengthen their attack as they prepare for Carlos Tevez's likely return to Boca Juniors in a year's time and Palermo striker Dybala, who has expressed a desire to stay in Serie A, looks to be their prime target.

"We do like Dybala and he is one of our objectives," Marotta is quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport after Juve reached the semifinals of the Champions League on Wednesday night. "I won't hide the fact that I have met with [Palermo president Maurizio] Zamparini -- even if I do go and deny it, he will only blurt it out anyway.

"He's a great player, but alongside him you need experienced players too. We're trying to find an agreement with Zamparini for this player who we like, but we're not the only ones who like him. Let's just see what happens."

However, Dybala is rated at €50 million by Zamparini and, even with the record-breaking revenue earned by Juve in the Champions League so far this season, they do not intend to meet that valuation for the 21-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in what is only his second season in Serie A.

As a result, they are keeping their options open and would consider a move for former Napoli forward Cavani, who has struggled to produce his best form at Paris Saint-Germain.

"We've not had any contact with Paris Saint-Germain for Cavani, but if he were to be placed on the market, then we would have a little chat," Marotta said.

Monaco striker Falcao has also been linked after his difficult loan spell at Manchester United, and Marotta said earlier this season that the Colombian had wanted to join the Italian champions last summer.

He said at the time that United's financial power had prevented Juve signing Falcao, though, and it appears that nothing has changed.

"Falcao is a Monaco player on loan at Manchester United and his wages are substantial and beyond our means," Marotta said. "It's utopian to imagine him in a Juventus shirt."
