I don't think it's a given at all that he'll leave. Sarri has changed his formation to accommodate Dyabala and Ramsey, so Dybala is going to have every opportunity between now and January to establish himself as an important part of the team. Early signs are that he's playing very well, and they aren't just going to turn around and sell one of their best performers just to bring in revenue.They will still want him gone. It's not just the management but the owners. Sarri is playing him more our of necessity. Ideally he would swap him for a younger higuain and they need the money the would bring. Not that I see any reason he would want to come here but he will def leave ether Jan or summer.
The reason he was transfer listed was because he would have brought in a big fee and because Sarri didn't see a place for him in his tactical setup. The latter issue seems that it has been resolved, and it's not as though they don't have other assets they could sell to fund the acquisition of a new striker. If he continues to perform I'd be surprised to see him sold instead of other players, especially considering that it doesn't seem possible for him to get a move to a league that outlaws third party ownership of image rights.
