Chilean club refused to pay less than a million for Dybala

Sabino Aguad revealed that a few years ago, Paulo Dybala could have joined Universidad de Chile. Now it has been revealed that refusing to pay 700,000 euros meant the Argentine did not join the club.

Football can be a funny game sometimes and what seems like an unimportant decision can end up being a huge one when you look at it some years later.

That is what happened to Paulo Dybala of Juventus. A few years later, the refusal to pay 700,000 euros cost Universidad de Chile the chance to sign the Argentine.

That is what Sabino Aguad, the Universidad president at the time, told 'AS'.

"We followed Insituto (Dybala's old club) at that time and we ended up going for Dario Franco instead of Dybala. We made a mistake, because it should have been the other way around," he admitted.

An error which prevented the Chilean outfit from getting a star player and the chance to sell him for big money later on. All because they did not want to pay 700,000 euro for 50% ownership of the player, according to 'Goal'. Shortly afterwards, Dybala signed for Palermo for 12 million euros.
