Argentine star Paulo Dybala has admitted that he would like to play for Barcelona as he prospect of playing alongside Lionel Messi would be bigger.

Dybala is yet to be offered a new deal by his club Juventus with the player having strongly been linked with a move to Manchester United last summer.

In an interview with CNN via The Evening Standard, Dybala said: “The truth is that Barcelona is a huge team worldwide and with Messi there even bigger.

“It would be very nice, but Juventus is also an incredible club, very big, full of history, where there are currently great players.

“There’s enough quality here to make two teams and the chance to play with Buffon and Cristiano Ronaldo, who make the club even bigger.

“For now there is nothing, really. I have a year and a half left on my contract, which is not much, and I understand that with all this that has happened (coronavirus) it isn’t easy for the club, but other players have also renewed, so we are here waiting.

“Obviously I am a player of this club and I am happy to be here. People love me very much and I love people very much. I have a great appreciation for the club and the people who are here, I have a good relationship with my president and surely at some point, they will come to chat – or maybe not, I don’t know

“At some point maybe there may be some possible renewal, but it depends on Juventus.”

The 26-year-old is contracted to Juventus until 2022 and has re-established himself as a key member of the Juventus team after struggles earlier in the season.
