Birindelli backing Juventus deals for Dybala and Oscar

Former Juventus defender Alessandro Birindelli supports their deal for Palermo striker Paulo Dybala. Dybala is expected to complete his move this week.

Birindelli told TMW: "I think it's a coup, but whether he will be good and will prevail immediately may depend on Carlos Tevez.

"He's an important player and unpredictable, definitely a great buy for Juventus in terms of present and future."

Asked about Juve's interest in Chelsea midfielder Oscar, Birindelli was adamant.

"I like him a lot, if I were to make an investment or another important economic effort I would do it on the right of midfield with the Brazilian from Chelsea."
