Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and forward Paulo Dybala will not be leaving this summer, director Fabio Paratici has said.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Allegri is one of the candidates to replace Jose Mourinho as the full-time manager at Manchester United. The Italian took over as Juve boss in 2014 following the departure of Antonio Conte and has won four successive Serie A and Coppa Italia doubles and reached the Champions League final on two occasions.

"I believe he will stay," Paratici told La Gazzetta dello Sport when asked about Allegri. "I really don't see a better manager."

Meanwhile, Dybala has been linked with a move to Real Madrid as well other top European sides following a difficult period at the Allianz Stadium in which he reacted badly to being an unused sub in the recent 3-3 draw with Parma.

However, Paratici said the Argentina international is going nowhere -- and that there are very few better options available.

"Dybala is staying," the director said. "Only people who want to go will leave Juve.

"I repeat, it is difficult to find better players than those we already have."

Asked who would be an upgrade on Dybala, Paratici said: "It is difficult. Maybe [Lionel] Messi, even with Neymar I'd have my doubts.

"And Dybala is someone who is always available. He plays every game."
