Super-agent Mino Raiola is now facing the ire of Juventus fans after telling his client Paulo Dybala he should part ways with the Serie A giants.
Dybala has mad an incredible start to this season – with seven goals already to his name in just four matches – helping Juventus to maintain a 100 per cent record that put them at the top of the league table.
Raiola, who boasts of a high-profile client list, which also includes Manchester United quartet Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Henrikh Mkhitarya, insisted that Dybala should leave Juventus to take his footballing career to a higher pedestal.
Dybala had been linked with a move to Barcelona following Neymar’s departure.
But the Italian-Dutchman believes that a move to the Nou Camp would not be fit for the Argentine forward – with the La Liga giants alredy landing Dembele from Dortmund in order to replace Neymar.
Raiola accentuated that Dybala would do well at Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea.
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 49 goals and 18 assists to his name in 98 games for Juventus.
The Argentine forward came off the bench to guide Juve to a 3-0 win over Chievo at the weekend, and boss 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 could 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.”
