Paulo Dybala has clearly stated the primary aim for Juventus this season is to win the Champions League trophy.

La Joya as he is fondly called equally revealed he ’d love to reunite with long-term pal Paul Pogba in a recent chat with Telefoot and cited on Football Italia

“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.

Marchisio on Ronaldo and Italian football

Ex-Juventus man Claudio Marchisio has disclosed that Italian football is too suffocating citing the case of former teammate Gianluigi Buffon. Marchisio had been a one-club man...

“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.”
