Dybala 'won't be the only one to leave' Juventus, says brother


Juventus star Paulo Dybala "needs a change", according to his brother and agent Gustavo.

25-year-old attacker Dybala was Juve's untouchable top scorer last season but played second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo this term - perhaps the biggest casualty of the Portuguese superstar's arrival in Turin.

The Argentina international was dropped to the bench many times this campaign and his brother Gustavo told Argentine radio show Futbolemico that he's likely to leave the Bianconeri in the off-season.

“Yes, there is a good chance he’ll leave Juventus. Absolutely. He needs a change,” he said.

“I can’t say where he’ll go, but there is a strong chance Paulo will leave.

"Of course he’s not happy there.

"Paulo’s not the only one - many players are uncomfortable at Juve.

“He won’t be the only one to leave the Bianconeri this summer.”

La Gazzetta dello Sport report Atletico Madrid have started talks with Dybala about a transfer to the Spanish capital to replace the outgoing Antoine Griezmann.

It's rumoured Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri has transfer listed Dybala, but the Argentine may wait to see if Allegri is still coaching the Old Lady next season amid speculation the Italian could be sacked.

Gustavo did say his brother's potential exit has nothing to do with Cristiano Ronaldo, despite Allegri's apparent dislike for playing them together, and that the two players have a good relationship.

“Cristiano is a great person and he (Paulo) never had problems with him. They have a good rapport," he said.

"There were a few tactical misunderstandings, because let’s not forget they have similar positions.”
