Dybala admits he was "close to leaving" Juventus amid interest from Man Utd and Tottenham in the summer.
He told the Guardian: "I was close to leaving. That was in the club's thinking, I knew. Until the last minute, we were waiting."
"I have two years left on my contract," he added. "That's not a short time but it's not a long one either. We'll see what plans Juventus have, if they think I might leave in the next market or if they want me to stay. That's a decision for the club to make. It's hard to know because things change in a second.
“But I'm here, at a club that has treated me well; I'm happy, comfortable. [Maurizio] Sarri's arrival has helped. He wanted me to stay, which gave me strength when we didn't know what would happen. I knew he could teach me, help me bring out the best in myself."
