Juventus coach Allegri says Dybala can be best footballer in future

Edgar Davids says comparisions with Lionel Messi will only hurt Juventus' Paulo Dybala - "leave him to grow in peace".

Dybala has been on fire since joining Juventus in 2015 from Palermo. Having reached and then lost two of the last three finals, Juventus may well be hoping that this season it is a case of "third time lucky".

After this match, Juventus will travel to Spain to take on FC Barcelona in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday.

"He's an important player in his team, in Europe and in the world, we know that", said the coach.

Dybala's objective, then, is very similar to Neymar's: to become the best player he can be away from Messi, and to try to sidle up as closely as possible to both the atomic flea and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Dybala is under no illusions that he still has a lot to do to reach the Barcelona man's level, although given his incredible potential, there is no reason why he can not emulate his achievements in the game.

"It's a bit hard for me to play with him because I play in his position".

Dybala is a brilliant player, combining speed, technique, and vision to create opportunities for himself and his teammates in a manner not all that dissimilar to Eden Hazard. Maybe, I just don't understand.

With Croat Mario Mandzukic, German Sami Khedira and veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini all out through injury and with Colombian Juan Cuadrado suspended, Allegri will have to make changes tonight.

Rare exceptions aside, such as Gonzalo Higuain's €90 million signing from Napoli in 2016, Juventus are known for finding great deals even in today's lopsided transfer market.
