Super agent Mino Raiola has upset Juventus fans after telling star man Paulo Dybala he should leave the Italian giants.
The Argentine already has five goals in just three matches this season, with the Old Lady top of Serie A and carrying a 100 per cent record.
Raiola, whose client list includes Manchester United quartet Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, says Dybala would be better off elsewhere.
But the Italian-Dutchman doesn’t think that will be Barcelona, where the 23-year-old Dybala has most strongly been linked in recent windows.
He told Italain radio station RaiSport: “I think Dybala will eventually leave Juve.
“He has to go to a team where he gets into a project that is already suitable for him.
“For him it is difficult now to enter a reformed Barcelona, but he would do well at Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea.”
Dybala has now scored 49 goals in 98 matches for Juventus, as well as adding another 18 assists.
After climbing off the bench to help Juve to a 3-0 win over Chievo at the weekend, manager Massimiliano Allegri said that he can be as good as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.
“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,” Allegri said.
“His future is with Juventus and I am very happy with that.”
Chievo keeper Stefano Sorrentino, Dybala’s former team-mate at Palermo, said Dybala win the Ballon d’Or one day.
Sorrentino said: “I am fortunate enough to know him very well and I am therefore not remotely surprised by how well he’s doing.
“I was able to play with Dybala for two-and-a-half years, so imagine the number of times I had to fly to my right and left in training.
“He can still improve a great deal and will become the best. He has everything it takes to win the Ballon d’Or — I just hope that, when it happens, he invites me to the party.”
