Dybala: 'Juve want Champions League'

Paulo Dybala confirms the Champions League is “the main objective” for Juventus this season and he’d love to play with Paul Pogba.

La Joya sat down with Telefoot and was asked about the rumours of a return to Turin for Manchester United star Pogba.

“I’d always like to play with someone of his level. Whatever decision he makes, I always wish him the best of luck,” replied Dybala.

“Everyone knows how important Cristiano Ronaldo is for us and what he represents for our opponents too. He gives everything, whether it’s in training or a match situation, and also sets a good example for youngsters.

“I’d say Lionel Messi and Ronaldo are on the same level. As for the future, Neymar and above all Kylian Mbappé have what it takes to match them.

“As for myself, I have changed my style of play recently and learned so much by working with great champions. It’s quite a mature and experienced squad in Turin, but that really helps a young player like me, because you learn and absorb their mentality.”

Juventus face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16 next month and having reached the final twice in recent years, are making no secret of their ambitions.

“The Champions League is the main objective for us this season and we’ll do everything we can to win it. Atletico Madrid are, along with Liverpool, the worst side we could’ve picked in the draw.”
