Paulo Dybala is the new Messi according to former Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini.
The Argentine forward’s current contract with Juventus expires in the summer of 2022 and he is yet to pen a new deal with the Old Lady.
He has been continuously linked with a move away from the Allianz Stadium with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain being his possible destinations.

Maurizio Zamparini told Tuttosport: “I am still convinced that he is the new Messi. Dybala, as well as a champion, is a very good guy. And I can’t understand why many insiders tend to forget him.”
“That Dybala is not a starter in Serie A is a blasphemy. Paulo should have followed my advice three years ago, to move away from Turin.
“I told him clearly: ‘Paulo, for your own sake, you must leave Juventus’. His football is fantasy [and is best suited to] Spain, at either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
“But he has always told me he feels good at Juventus.”
“The advice I give him today is the same: ‘Paulo, leave Juventus and go to Real Madrid’. Maybe as early as January. It would be a deal [that is good] for everyone,” he said.
“For him and also for Juventus, who already tried to sell him two summers ago. Paulo is a champion and not a deputy. At Juventus, there is Cristiano Ronaldo, a real phenomenon, and Dybala has to go and play [against] Ronaldo in another big team.”
