Dybala Needs to Leave Juventus-Dani Alves
Dani Alves has told Paulo Dybala he will have to leave Juventus in order to reach his full potential.
Argentina international Dybala has been tipped as Lionel Messi’s heir, a claim that gained more weight when he hit a double in Juve’s 3-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Barcelona.
The 23-year-old has been persistently linked with a move to Camp Nou, as well as Liga champions Real Madrid, and Juve team-mate Alves believes such a transfer is required for him to improve.
“La Joya [Dybala’s nickname] will bear fruit,” Alves said in an interview on Esporte Interativo.
“We have spoken many times and I told him that one day, I do not know when, he will have to leave Juventus to improve even more.”
Dybala has won back-to-back Scudetti and Coppa Italia since joining Juve in 2015, but he was on the losing side in the Champions League final this month in a 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid.
