Juventus striker Paulo Dybala admits “theres no other team like Barcelona” after reiterating his desire to play alongside Lionel Messi.
Dybala has long been linked with a move to Barca, even after his mega switch to Juve last summer, and he was not afraid of repeating his admiration for the Champions League holders as he was also full of praise for Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I’m proud that an idol like [Lionel] Messi says I’d be a worthy successor to him because it means I’m working well, so I must continue on this path,” he told El Chiringuito.
“When I went to the national team, he was injured so I didn’t see him, but if all goes well, I’ll have the chance to meet him at a later date.
“Cristiano [Ronaldo] demonstrates in every game what kind of player he is.
“He’s admirable because everyone who’s played in his position would want to score all the goals he has.
“Real Madrid play good football. They have a new Coach and it’s difficult in such a short time for them to play exactly how he wants.
“[On Barcelona], you don’t need to tell me. They’ve stuck to their philosophy for a long time, since [Pep] Guardiola.
“They have the best players in the world at the moment and, going forward, there’s no other team attack like Barcelona.
“It’s not easy to say who will win the Champions League this season because we’re talking about the eight strongest teams in Europe.
“Surely it’s between Barcelona and Bayern Munich. I think one of the two will win it this season. “
