Dybala: 'I'm happy at Juventus'

Paulo Dybala assures “nobody talked to me about offers” from Barcelona or Real Madrid, but he hopes to follow Alex Del Piero’s footsteps at Juventus.

He has been repeatedly linked with the two Spanish giants for next season, so which would he prefer?

“Nobody has talked to me about offers,” La Joya told Rai Sport.

The Argentine scored a spectacular volley and set up Mario Mandzukic in tonight’s 3-2 Coppa Italia victory over Atalanta, putting the shoot-out error in the Supercoppa Italiana against Milan behind him.

It was a goal reminiscent of the kind scored by Juventus legend Del Piero.

“I’d love to have his career. I am very happy a Juve and my agent will arrive over the next few days to discuss the contract renewal with the club."

Arrigo Sacchi recommended that Real Madrid swoop for Dybala, but he had a response.

"I am thinking only about what Juventus and I decide. That's what matters.

“I have to tip my hat to Atalanta, because they are a really good team and they play very well. I had a bit of a rough time over the winter break, because I’d never missed a penalty with Juventus before, but now I feel better.

“I am only 23 years old, so I need to improve in so many areas, such as my physical strength and my right foot. I am enjoying the role of a trequartista, as (Coach Max) Allegri is giving me a lot of space and I can express myself well there.”
