FORMER England boss Fabio Capello says the only play he’d trade Paulo Dybala for is Harry Kane.
Capello has come to Dybala’s defence following criticism of the Juventus star this season.
The Argentina forward, 27, has just one goal in eight games under Andrea Pirlo and is yet to bag an assist.
Dybala’s poor form appears to be hurting Serie A champions Juve, who are sixth in the table after winning just six of their opening 13 matches.
And after catching coronavirus earlier this year, reports suggest Dybala could be on his way out.
Manchester United have been linked with a stunning swap deal including Paul Pogba.
And Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to be keen as they prepare to make Mauricio Pochettino their new boss.
Juventus’ fierce rivals Napoli have even been tipped to make an audacious approach for Dybala,
But the Turin giants are thought to be preparing a new contract offer for their talisman, who is in his sixth season with the club after joining for £36million fro Palermo in 2015.
Indeed, former Juventus boss Capello reckons Dybala is one of the best in the business.
And the tactician insists the only player he’d swap Dybala for is Tottenham ace Kane, who has nine goals and ten assists in just 15 games.
Capello told Gazzetta: “I said I wouldn’t swap Dybala to get Pogba. If I could, I’d trade him with Tottenham’s English striker Harry Kane.
“[Poor form?] Covid is the explanation, especially for a player like Dybala, who needs to dribble a man.
“The impression is that he’s a bit unfinished. He captivates but leaves doubts. He certainly has superior qualities, he really has all you need.
“He needs the physical conditions to return to his best. Paulo needs to be 100 per cent well, because if you are well physically, the head leads you to face the opponents, the teammates, the coach and even the club.
“Dybala can do everything on the pitch if he is well, even playing in a trident with Alvaro Morata and Cristiano Ronaldo.”
