Fabio Paratici has very high hopes for Paulo Dybala, the expectation is he can reach the levels of compatriot Lionel Messi.

Juventus’ chief football officer Fabio Paratici has made a dramatic u-turn when it comes to Paulo Dybala.

Only this past summer he was touting the Argentine forward all around Europe trying to find a buyer.

Now apparently he is the heir apparent to the throne of GOAT held by his compatriot Lionel Messi.

Dybala has been in sensational form this season. He has forced his way back in the Bianconeri’s plans following a summer of discontent.

This is something that Paratici is fully aware of. He insists that he and the club are happy with the player and see a bright future for him at Juventus.

Speaking to Rai Sport he said:

“We are very happy with Dybala, he is our number 10.”

“We’ve invested heavily in him and hope [that] he can be Juventus’ Leo Messi.”
