Marotta reckons the Serie A giants will be powerless to keep the Dybala if he demands a move to the Nou Camp.

But he confirmed that none of Juve’s stars have release clauses in their contracts.

And that means Barca will not be able to prise away ten-cap Dybala without a fight.

The Bianconeri general manager said: “The player is the one that decides his fate, and if he wants to leave, it’ll be impossible to keep him.

“It’s crucial in a player-club relationship in Spain, but only Gonzalo Higuain and Miralem Pjanic had release clauses in Italy. I’m against giving clauses to our players.

“The damage from Neymar’s transfer can’t be calculated that easily, and for me it goes beyond the €220m (£198m) Barca pocketed.

“€90m (£75m) for Higuain? This campaign was created following Pogba’s sale and we’re delighted with Higuain. Beyond all that, he’s important to our style of play.”

Reports in Italy say Chelsea are among the clubs eying 16-year-old Genoa wonderkid Pietro Pellegri.

Marotta says he has sounded out the player over a move to Juve – but has missed the chance to sign him on the cheap.

"We’ve been following the lad for two years.

"We sounded him out, but the figures back then were far lower than what they are now.

"He’s among the best players of his generation, but he still has to become a champion."
