Paulo Dybala knows how to grab media attention and keep Europe’s top clubs scouts busy preparing a move away from Juventus for him. His latest statement creates a doubt about his long term commitment to Juventus and his longing for a better club, where he can win Ballon d’or.
Juve star told France Football as Sport reports, “I can’t make promises, especially because it’s not up to me. For now they haven’t asked me I’m not thinking about it. I live in the present and I want to win everything.”
He adds, “I don’t know I’ll be at Juve all my life. Not even if this will be my last year. I would like to vie with Neymar (for the Ballon d’or) but in these moments he’s closer to it than I am. He’s closest to Messi and Ronaldo. My desire is to win Ballon d’or.”
Dybala also speaks highly of former Barcelona man Ronaldinho and his compatriot Lionel Messi showing his interest in a move to Camp Nou. He said, “I’ve always admired Ronaldinho, but Leo is like Maradona for my generation. It’s an honour to play with him, he’s a born leader.”
Juventus’ sporting director Giuseppe Marotta wants Dybala to commit to the club for lifetime as Andres Iniesta signed a life time contract with Barcelona, but Argentine forward thinks himself as too young to commit for life-time. He is only 24, and he wants to win everything which is not guaranteed at Juventus.
Winning Serie A every season doesn’t guarantee Ballon d’or trophy. Uefa Champions League is top priority and Juve has failed to win the Europe’s elite trophy despite being finalist in 2014/15 and 2016/17 season. Dybala knows very well that either Real Madrid or Barcelona camp can help him to fulfill his dream and he has set the alarm bell for both Spanish giants with his statement.
