Alessandro Del Piero believes Paulo Dybala can stay at Juventus for the rest of his career and become a club icon.
The striker has been a star player for the Bianconeri since joining from Palermo in 2015. After scoring 11 goals in 31 Serie A games last season, the 23-year-old has been in excellent form for the Bianconeri this term, scoring 10 in his first seven league appearances.
The Argentina international has been pursued by many European heavyweights and is expected to attract further interest from Europe’s top sides in the near future, but Del Piero, who used to wear the No.10 shirt Dybala currently wears, hopes to see him stay in Turin for the long term.
“The No.10 didn’t really belong to me,” the ex-Juventus and Italy star told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Before me Roberto Baggio, Omar Sivori and Michel Platini had worn it. Now there’s a superstar who has everything to stay at Juve for life, if he wants to.
“He has raised his level even further at the start of this season, he’s doing exciting things. I’m not just talking about goals, I’m talking about how he can decide matches when he turns it on.
“He also has rare moral qualities. I hope he can do what I did in Turin, because no-one can enter the hearts of the fans like him.”
