Paulo Dybala has indirectly urged former teammate Paul Pogba to return to Juventus.
The Argentine star striker joined Juventus in 2015, and had an uncanny understanding with the Frenchman before the latter’s record-breaking return to Manchester United.
Talking to TyC Sports, Dybala stated: “Hearing that he is maybe coming back, I’m very happy, even more with the relationship I have with him. Now we could stop making video calls and we would go back to training together. I felt very good on the pitch with him.
“There was a lot of feeling between us, and we also get on very well off the field. We always created new greetings, new ways to celebrate a goal, like when we touched our fingers after watching Dragon Ball Z.”

Despite enjoying domestic success with 7 successive Serie A titles, the Turin-based giants have faltered at the latter stages of the Champions League.
Their campaign in the 2017-18 season reached an anticlimactic end. They managed to claw back from a 3-0 first leg deficit against Real Madrid, before Lucas Vazquez was brought down inside the box.
Cristiano Ronaldo made no mistake from the spot with what was essentially the last kick of the game in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Juve now wish to improve their chances in Europe, and signing Pogba would bolster them significantly. The midfielder has long been linked with a return to The Old Lady, mainly due to reports of a fallout surfacing between him and Jose Mourinho last season.
He started off the 2017-18 season on a bright note, as did the rest of the United squad. Injuries, reduced appearances, and some risky play, however, put some shade in the campaign.
The 25-year-old’s season also came to an end with a whimper, as United lost in the FA Cup final to Chelsea. Pogba will now be looking to bring his career back on track with a strong showing for France in the World Cup, scheduled to start on 14th June.
