Dybala: I want to be a Juve legend

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has reiterated his commitment to the Serie A giants and claims he wants to be a club icon by the time he decides to end his stay.

Dybala arrived at the Juventus Stadium from Palermo last season as a promising talent for reported fee of €32 million and has since developed into one of Europe's most feared attackers under head coach Massimo Allegri's tutelage.

The Argentina international's recent display in the UEFA Champions League, where he scored a brace to help the Bianconeri knock Barcelona out of the competition also highlighted his potential to become one of the worlds best.

Transfer speculation involving Real Madrid and the Blaugrana soon followed, linking the diminutive forward to the Spanish Primera Division but Dybala claims he's aspiring to write his name into the history books alongside the likes of Allesandro Del Piero.

"My future? I want to be a Bianconero symbol," he told the club's website. "Del Piero is an example. It will be hard to follow in his footsteps, both on and off the pitch. 

"He's a very correct person, I've met him and he's a really good person. Where do I lack compared to him? Definitely in front of goal, he scored a lot more than me. I'm missing a lot to be like Del Piero.

"The number 10? I've always said that the number 21 is important for Juve. Alex's 10 is hard to wear, I respect 21 and I want to wear this number.

"I'll never ask for the number 10, if the club offers me it then we'll talk."
