Dybala Names One Player He Would Love To Swap Shirts With

Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala has named the one footballer who he would love to swap shirts with.

Messi Reveals The Only Player He Ever Asked To Swap Shirts With

The 23-year-old arguably single-handedly knocked FC Barcelona out of the UEFA Champions League with his display in the first leg of the quarter-final in Turin.

Many would think the Argentine looked up to FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi when growing up, and perhaps he did, but the youngster has revealed that it is Brazil legend Ronaldinho's jersey he wants more than any other.

"The one player's shirt that I would still love to have is Ronaldinho's," Dybala told UEFA.com.

"One day Gennaro Gattuso promised me that he was going to call him to ask him for a shirt for me because he'd played with him, but it didn't happen.

"Ronaldinho was one of my favourite players when I was growing up and the image he conveyed to me was that you've got to have fun and play with a smile on your face."

Revealed: Why Ronaldo Was Furious With Real Teammate

Dybala, who will be back in action on Wednesday night when Juventus take on Monaco in the first leg of their UCL semi-final, has made 40 appearances in all competitions for his Serie A club this season, scoring 17 goals and assisting eight further strikes.

Do you think Dybala can be Messi's successor? Have your say in the comments section below.
