Paulo Dybala has revealed it is his dream to win the Champions League with Juventus, despite speculation continuing to grow surrounding his future at the club.

The Argentina international has just 18 months remaining on his current deal with the Old Lady and 90min has previously revealed a number of Premier League clubs have been alerted regarding his potential availability.

Dybala had looked set to depart Turin in the summer with both Manchester United and Tottenham mooted as potential destinations, but a deal failed to materialise.

When asked of his dreams in an interview (via Gazetta dello Sport), Dybala replied: “I have two. The first is to win the Champions League with Juve, the other is to win the World Cup with Argentina.

“Luckily I have experienced many beautiful moments with Juve. We have won a lot together, but I think arriving here was a unique emotion.

"Wearing this shirt, my first conference was one of the best moments. I hope there will be many goals and the important thing, for now, will be to win the Super Cup in January with Napoli."

Dybala went on to speak of his delight at having been handed the famous Juventus number ten shirt back in 2017, and says he's all too aware of the significance of the jersey.

“It is an important number, there is a lot of responsibility but I am proud to wear this number," he added. "The day they gave me this shirt it was not easy to accept, because I knew what this number was carrying, but beyond that it is the emblem that is in front of it that is more important. Juve is asked for more, we must always give more."

The forward has struggled to make an impact on the Juventus first team this season, with Andrea Pirlo affording him just five Serie A starts thus far.

Despite the speculation surrounding his future at the club, the Argentinian couldn't hide his joy when asked about his move to Turin in 2015, insisting he only ever wanted to move to Juventus once he learned of the Italian giant's interest in him.

“First I asked if it [Juventus' interest] was a joke," he said. "There were other teams looking for me, but I told my agent that I only wanted to hear from Juve. I had nothing else in mind."
