Massimiliano Allegri has stated that his charge, Paulo Dybala cannot play centre forward for a big club. And intend to hold on to him.
The Argentina international had a fine start to the season and attracted interest from United and Barcelona.
Dybala has been compared with Messi, but a switch to Barcelona and Old Trafford has not materialised
The 24-year-old has suffered a dip in form since then, and a sour relationship with Allegri does not seem to get better, with the Italian questioning his ability to lead the line for a big club.
Allegri told reporters of the South American’s role: “He cannot play centre-forward for a big club, where the distance to goal is much shorter.
“Just look at his best goals for Juve, they’re often when he’s running from deeper positions.”
