Paulo Dybala – Mauro Icardi (Lapresse)
Dybala-Juventus, return after the break for Joya
Paulo Dybala is 100% healed: the knee of the Jewel clinically he is in place, but the striker of the Juventus he still doesn’t feel right (on changes of direction and when he kicks). This is why the Juventus club has decided not to force his return: even with Benevento the Argentine champion will not be risked. The hope is to get him back after the national team break. Andrea Pirlo he confirmed this in the last press conference: “We hope to have Paulo available immediately after the break”. Maestro also pointed out that Dybala this season was a “big absence”.

The alternative? Comes from Barcelona (especially if Leo messi should leave: Psg in the front row). The Blaugrana have a player who fits well in a negotiation for Dybala in Spain: Antoine Griezmann. Fast forward, technical but who in the two years in Catalonia has not found those ideas that had made him great with the Atletico Madrid shirt (to the point of bringing the Barça to pay the 120 million euro release clause).
