For all his talent, Dybala didn't reach Juve until spells with Instituto in Argentina and Palermo.
He told France Football: "I'm conscious of how different my particular path was," Dybala admitted.
“If you evolve in a big Argentinian club you understand the mental pressure and it prepares you for Europe. Instituto were a big team, but in the second division.
“I could have stayed in my country and gone to a decorated club, but when Palermo came in I said to myself: 'why not?'.
“I also thought of the path of [Edinson] Cavani and [Javier] Pastore. I said to my family that I wanted to go to progress.
"I knew Italian football, but I didn't think I'd play all of the matches.
“I always dreamed of a big Argentinian club, but once I got to Palermo I forgot about all of that. And if I'd stayed longer it could have complicated things."
