Aaron Ramsey left OUT of Juventus squad for Serie A clash with Parma…but Paulo Dybala is included despite speculation over his future
- Aaron Ramsey has been overlooked for Juventus’ clash with Parma on Saturday
- The midfielder made his debut in a 20-min cameo against Triestina last week
- The friendly was his first appearance since suffering a hamstring injury in April
- Paulo Dybala is in Maurizio Sarri’s squad despite speculation over his future
Aaron Ramsey has been left out of Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus squad for their opening Serie A clash of the season against Parma, but there is space for Paulo Dybala.
Ramsey joined Juve on a free transfer earlier this summer but only made his debut in a 20-minute cameo against Triestina in a friendly last week.
That game was his first appearance since suffering a hamstring injury back in April, meaning his absence is likely down to a lack of fitness.

The midfielder has a battle on his hands for a starting berth in a talented Juventus midfield
Ramsey will have a battle on his hands to nail down a regular spot in midfield, where Sarri has a multitude of options to choose from.
Sami Khedira, Emre Can, Miralem Pjanic, Adrien Rabiot and Blaise Matuidi are all currently ahead of him in the pecking order and are in the squad to face Parma.
However, there is space in Sarri’s squad for Dybala, despite rumours persisting over his future after moves to Tottenham and Manchester United failed to materialise earlier this month.

Dybala’s inclusion comes despite continued speculation linking him with a move elsewhere
The forward has featured throughout Juve’s pre-season and could start on Saturday
Dybala has featured throughout Juve’s pre-season and was named man-of-the-match after scoring a brilliant chip in the 1-0 win over Triestina.
His performance in that game could secure him a place in Sarri’s starting XI following a summer of speculation regarding his future.
Dybala has been an integral part of the Bianconeri’s success in recent seasons but was marginalised last term following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Most recently he has been linked with PSG as a possible replacement for Neymar if he returns to former club Barcelona.
