Juventus boss Max Allegri takes swipe at Man Utd transfer target Paulo Dybala and claims he believed he was 'new Messi'

June 2, 2022

JUVENTUS manager Max Allegri has given a parting dig to Paulo Dybala amid Premier League transfer speculation.

The 28-year-old is currently a free agent after bringing an end to a seven year spell with the Old Lady, notching up 115 goals and 48 assists for the club.

However, the Argentina international drew criticism from former manager Allegri for attitude issues during his time at the club.

Speaking to DAZN, Allegri said: "Paulo needs to go back to being himself. There was a time where he got all carried out by those who labeled him as 'the new Messi' "

"A player can't go around trying to play, to think or to be like someone else."

While Dybala's attitude was brought into question by the 54-year-old, he was complimentary about what the star brings to a team on the pitch.

The Argentinian forward has not been short of interest since becoming a free agent, with clubs all around Europe eager to secure his services.

Manchester United are one of the clubs interested in acquiring Dybala, who are looking to rebuild after the hiring of Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford.

Spurs have also been rumoured to be interested in the forward, however it appears he has personally ruled himself out of a move to North London.
