Cobolli Gigli: Juventus must keep hold of Dybala

Former Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli says they must keep hold of Paulo Dybala.

The Argentina striker has spoken how closely he came to moving to England last summer, while also opening the door to joining Barcelona.

Cobolli Gigli insists Juve must do all they can to make sure Dybala stays.

He told TMW: "He is different from other players. He must find continuity.

"In the current championship he showed better things than the previous one, he also strengthened physically. The class then allows you to disregard the physical.

"He is fundamental for Juve. The day (Cristiano) Ronaldo leaves, he will create greater homogeneity within Juve. There will no longer be the huge star but a team of champions. The game will change and he too will be decisive."
