Juventus star Paulo Dybala discusses difficulties of playing alongside Lionel Messi

The Bianconeri number 10 has started the season in stunning from, with seven goals in four games, and has drawn comparisons to his compatriot, who he'll face against Barcelona tonight.

Little wonder then that Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri had an interesting answer for those commentators who argued that Juventus, especially in the first half without Dybala, had played badly against Chievo: "I don't know how well or badly Juventus played but I do know that we won".

He has scored 49 goals in 98 appearances in just over two seasons at Juventus, having signed from Palermo in 2015.

Dybala is under no illusions that he still has a lot to do to reach the Barcelona man's level, although given his incredible potential, there is no reason why he can not emulate his achievements in the game.

Meanwhile, super-agent Mino Raiola says Dybala will leave Juventus in order to realise his fulfil potential.

"I think Dybala will eventually leave Juve", Raiola told RaiSport.

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has today opened up on playing alongside Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi for the Argentinian national team.

'And if he does he should go to a team with a project already formed where he can join.

"He would do well in Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea, as they always have great projects".

Dybala's objective, then, is very similar to Neymar's: to become the best player he can be away from Messi, and to try to sidle up as closely as possible to both the atomic flea and Cristiano Ronaldo. "I'm very happy, doing well, this year I made a decision to play with an important number that means a lot for this club (No 10)".
