Paulo Dybala recalls first signing for Juventus

Paulo Dybala has recalled when first signing for Juventus.

The striker joined Juve from Palermo in 2015.

“I remember that day as if it were yesterday," said Dybala.

“I was at home in Palermo with my mother and others. We were talking about what could happen, the team I could choose, there were already many clubs, coaches and others calling, but I wouldn't close to door on anyone, nor say yes or no, because I felt that sooner or later the call would come from Juve.

“One day, after lunch, my agent called and said in an hour, you'll receive a phone call from the Juventus director. I spoke to Fabio (Paratici) and he told me that he'd do everything possible to ensure that I joined Juventus.

“After I put the phone down, I ran over to my Mum, I hugged her and said I didn't want to go anywhere else."
