Paulo Dybala will leave Juventus - Agent Mino Raiola

Posted September 13, 2017

The 23-year old replaced Douglas Costa in the 54th minute with The Old Lady 1-0 up through an own goal from Perparim Hetemaj, and just four minutes after entering the fray, he played a crucial role in Juve's second, which was finished emphatically by strike partner Gonzalo Higuain.

Paulo Dybala has refused to rule out joining Lionel Messi at Barcelona but insists he is happy at Juventus.

"I have played with him in the national team and it is a great pleasure to do so". Remember those two ties were, respectively, the Berlin Champions League Final of 2015 and then last season's quarter-final clash.

"No player has reached Messi, Ronaldo. if I want to be at this level I have to keep working hard, improving, it will not be easy".

But in the build up the goal, Dybala did something truly incredible that is testament to his mercurial talents, and why he is considered to be a future Ballon d'Or victor.

This season, record Italian champions Juventus have given Dybala their coveted No.10 shirt - previously worn by the likes of Omar Sivori, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero. "If you have Dybala in the team, then the team starts to play..."

In response, he said: "What the boss said is nice but they will still be playing for many years". He gets dozens of goals per year, especially in the decisive games. "It could go either way but we'll have to secure qualification to the next round in the three games that come after Tuesday", he said. Dybala will probably be flanked by "new boy" Brazilian Douglas Costa and by experienced ball victor Stefano Sturaro in a 4-2-3-1 line-up, headed obviously by Higuain.
