Before the five-time Ballon d'Or winner moved to to Italy, Paulo Dybala was the main goal threat in Turin.

However, his goal contributions fell sharply after the Portuguese's arrival at Juve, from scoring 26 goals and registering seven assists in 2017/18 season to 10 goals and two assists in the 2018/19 campaign.

Although the Argentina international was on 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions for the season before the coronavirus pandemic interrupted the campaign, his manager Sarri has now made a surprising admission about fielding Ronaldo and Dybala together.

"Dybala is a phenomenal player. The point is to make him and Cristiano co-exist on the field because it is not easy to make them play together," the 61-year-old told Sky Sport Italia.

"But when two players with this type of quality are available, the rest of the squad has to adapt, both when attacking and defending.

"There is the risk that the opposition penalty area can seem a little empty, but all this is a very pleasant problem to have."

Ronaldo's future with the Serie A giants has once again been questioned and his Juventus future beyond this season seems uncertain.
