Juventus could give Paulo Dybala the Number 10 jersey this season as part of their bid to make him a “figurehead” it’s reported.
La Gazzetta dello Sport and Goal.com both claim this evening that Dybala will be given the iconic 10 shirt.
He’d be the first to wear it since Paul Pogba, who insisted on having the 10 before joining Manchester United, even if he didn’t play in the traditional trequartista role.
The 23-year-old has until now been wearing 21 for Juventus, but could soon switch to 10.
Numerous reports in Italy suggest Paulo Dybala will wear the ’10’ shirt for Juventus in the upcoming season.
Sky Sport Italia, Goal Italia and Gazzetta dello Sport all report that the iconic 10 shirt will be awarded to Dybala from this season.
It’s a big step, considering the shirt has been vacant since Paul Pogba wore it for one season before joining Manchester United.
Dybala previously spoke of his attachment to the 21 jersey but it seems Juve are instilling some trust in La Joya by allowing him to wear a prestigious number that has been previously been worn by the likes of Alessandro Del Piero and Roberto Baggio.
Juventus have since confirmed that Dybala will wear the 10 shirt for the new season
This would be seen as part of Juve’s strategy for keeping the Argentine amid interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid per Football Italia.
