Did you spot it?

"Playing with Messi in the national team?"

Barcelona were heavily linked with a move for Dybala after they lost Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain last month.

Super agent Mino Raiola has confirmed that his client Paulo Dybala will move to a club of Manchester United's ilk in the near future.

Dybala has enjoyed plenty of success with Juve since joining in 2015, having won back-to-back Serie A and Coppa Italia titles while also reaching last season's UEFA Champions League final.

He doesn't believe he will be Barca bound, instead suggesting Real Madrid or the Premier League will be his most likely destination.

"I'm happy to play at Juve for as long as they want to have me", Dybala told a news conference ahead of the clash at the Camp Nou.

Raiola said that the Argentine forward should leave the Italian champion and join the likes of Real, Manchester City, Man United or Chelsea. And when he does it, he should go to a club with a project already built which he can fit in, because he is too young to be the leader [of a team].

"I'm very happy to wear an important shirt like the No 10".

"Dybala is improving a great deal and has everything it takes to become, along with Neymar after Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi, one of the best players in the world". And if he does indeed leave Juventus next summer, Chelsea should undoubtedly look to try get in the mix, even if it means dealing with Raiola, and even if that would be a long-shot given the other four teams probably ready to break the bank to sign him.
