Chelsea are considered top contender for the Argentine whose contract is set to run out in a year time.
Juventus star midfielder, Paulo Dybala returned from long injury to net the sealing goal in their victory against Napoli.
But this doesn’t erase the fact that his future remains uncertain at Allianz Stadium with Chelsea hovering in the background.
The Argentine has so far refused to pen an extension with the Serie A side amid worries over his future at the club.
But Andrea Pirlo claims the Old Lady are in more position to retain Dybala despite strong interest from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are known to be wild in negotiations and that could see them lure away any star they desire to own.
This could in some way mean alarm for Pirlo who claims Dybala is still a part of his project at Turin as Chelsea are in need of creativity in their center.
Although they have been linked to AC Milan’s Hakan Calhanoglu but are yet to submit any official bid.
With the transfer window fast approaching, Pirlo took the time to confirm Dybala’s place saying; ‘When you have a player like Dybala at your disposal, you always try to let him play. We’ve almost never had him.
‘When you miss someone like this, it becomes difficult, and when he comes back he helps you win.
‘He still has a year on his contract. We hope to be able to keep him.’
