Dybala's future revealed!

10 months ago

Paulo Dybala has insisted that he is "very happy" to remain a part of Juventus's long-term plans, despite strong rumoured interest from Barcelona.

The Argentina international is understood to have been on the Catalan club's radar in the summer after another impressive campaign last time out, as he helped the Bianconeri to a sixth successive Serie A crown and to Coppa Italia success.

Agent Mino Raiola suggested on Monday that the 23-year-old will eventually depart Juventus for another European heavyweight, with Real Madrid also said to have shown an interest over the past 18 months.

Dybala appears to be content in Turin for the time being, though, telling reporters: "Nobody has said anything to me [about a Barca bid]. The club never came to me to say there was an offer on the table.

"The only thing the club said to me is that they want me to be part of this project for a long time, and I'm happy about that. As long as the club and the president [Andrea Agnelli] want me at Juve, that's where I'll be."

Asked about the prospect of linking up with Lionel Messi at Camp Nou, Dybala added: "He's already my teammate for Argentina but I'm really good at Juventus, although I don't know what's going to happen in the future. I'm very happy to wear an important shirt like the number 10."

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently heaped praise on Dybala but played down the prospect of making a future bid.
