Will he wake from the Juventus nightmare, or transfer away?
- 25 Years Old
- Clinical Player
- Great Potential Ability
- £86 Million Release Clause
- Unsettled at Juventus
- £2.88 on Football Index
- In Cristiano Ronaldo's shadow
- Poor Discipline?
- Doesn't get in National Team
I would say I am unsure where this downwards spiral in Paulo Dybala’s form has risen from, but I think we all know.
Since Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, Dybala has had to take a step out of the limelight, where he was known as Turins Golden Boy. He had a left foot which was comparable to Messi, & I actually think that HE was comparable to Messi.
Not only has Ronaldo taken his limelight, but it also ocurred during the 2018 World Cup. Paulo Dybala achieved just 22 minutes of action, with Higuain, Pavon & Aguero the players chosen to slot around Messi. There were reports that their playstyle was too similar to feature in the same team. Worse problems to have, in my opinion!
So with Dybala having to take the back seat for Club & Country, it’s only right that he would feel aggrieved. This has actually led to quite a few disciplinaries for Dybala, with some fans saying it’s time he leaves Juventus.
My opinion is that it’s a very short-sighted move, to lose Dybala & keep Ronaldo, who only has 1-2 years left.
A 24 year old Dybala would be my pick!
Paulo Dybala has transfer links everywhere.
Man Utd, Barcelona, Real Madrid & Chelsea are reportedly interested. I can’t see Man Utd getting Dybala with no Champions League football, however, he is signed for by Adidas, similar to Paul Pogba. Man Utd & Adidas had an agreement within the Paul Pogba transfer, so that’s a potential one to watch.
Barcelona and Real Madrid will be popping up with links to all of the best players, so that’s no surprise.
What really does interest me though, is the Chelsea link. If they can freeze their Transfer Ban, this will allow them to sign players for One more year. They will undoubtedly lose Hazard, but if they could bring in Paulo Dybala, I would say they haven’t lost much at all, providing Dybala hit the ground running.
Apparantly, Dybala has an £86m Buyout Clause.
For his Football Index price, I would say the Man Utd move would be greatest, as although they aren’t playing well currently, they are the biggest team in the world & dominate when involved in Media Buzz.
Life at Juventus
Dybala could infact stay at Juventus. He’s 25, so he knows he isn’t about to go extinct. The question is, will he be willing to wait patiently on the sidelines?
That’s what he’s doing at present. He has made 27 appearances, which sounds acceptable, until you drill down into these stats.
27 appearances, 5 goals, 6 assists. Dybala helps Juventus to 2.63 points per game, meaning they win most of their games when he plays.
Last season, he played 33 games, scoring 22 and assisting 5. A huge difference. He’s not the main man, anymore!
Paulo Dybala is only in the starting eleven 60% of the time, meaning he’s on the bench almost 1 in 2 games.
Dybala has made it clear he is unhappy with current life at Juventus. He was dropped by Allegri for walking straight down the tunnel when he was subbed off, instead of sitting on the bench.
In another incident, he was an unused substitute, so headed for the dressing room early.
The Palermo owner has stated his dissatisfaction at seeing Dybala rot away & he seems to think Dybala will leave
“Every time he is left out, it makes me want to cry. He’s on the bench because of [manager Massimiliano] Allegri. Allegri should come to Palermo and win the Scudetto. Two years ago, I sent Dybala a message and advised him to go to Spain, not Italy.
Paulo Dybala’s Football Index Journey
Priced at £2.87, Dybala is a good hold in my opinion, regardless of a transfer.
At 25 years old, he will be entering his peak.
With an average match day score of 102.3 & £0.24 in dividends, he is performing OK, but far from what’s acceptable for a ‘PB Player’.
Dybala has never earnt dividends, which isn’t rare for Serie A. Until Cristiano Ronaldo joined, I don’t think any player from Serie A had, ever!
I would give Paulo Dybala an 6.5/10 if I rate him on Football Index. I do hold him also, but expect returns which are a bit better than <10% in almost 2 years.
Before Ronaldo arrived, I would have had him at 8/10!
As much as I would love to see Dybala in the Premier League, I really can’t see him leaving Juventus for a team like Man City, Man Utd or Liverpool. They are the only three clubs in England that could afford him, but I am afraid I don’t think he would fit in either systems.
I say either, because Man City & Liverpool have systems, but United don’t. However, United have been plagued by South American flops, so I could see them sitting this one out.
Realistically, I think he will stay in Juventus. Most of the fans do still love him.
There is always the potential for a Real Madrid Galactico move, as they will be rebuilding this summer.
