Paulo Dybala is on fire at the moment.

Now 23-years-old, the Juventus striker is showing more and more every week why he's the supposed heir to Lionel Messi's throne.

He was at it again during Saturday's 4-0 thrashing against Torino, scoring two goals to take his tally for the season to 10.

Oh, and did I mention they have ALL come in Serie A?

Dybala's incredible tally finds him second in Europe's top goalscorer charts, one behind Monaco's Radamel Falcao (11) and one ahead of Messi (9).

But despite his scintillating form, Dybala remains humble, insisting that his main focus is to win trophies with Juventus, not scoring as many goals as possible.

"I am in a great moment of form and the team is helping me so much," he said. "We play well and attack in numbers, but the season has just begun, so we've got to continue like this.

"On the first goal, I had Tomas Rincon behind me and the goalkeeper was going in one direction, so I changed my direction and fortunately the ball got through the gap with the defender.

"Goals are great, but the important thing is to win trophies with the team. We want to go all the way in all three tournaments again, albeit changing the final result."

Juventus v ACF Fiorentina - Serie A

Thanks to Dybala, Juventus have won all six of their opening league games this season - yet they're still only second in the table.

Napoli have also won every game so far but have a superior goal difference, having scored 22 and conceded only five.

Dybala has his eyes on another Scudetto title with Juventus but doubts are starting to creep in as to whether he has a future at the club.

According to the Mirror, Manchester United are preparing to battle Barcelona for the Italian's signature by lining up a £155 million move next summer.


Jose Mourinho is a huge fan of Dybala and the Mirror also claim that vice-chairman Ed Woodward has spoken to his management team amid the rumours.

Woodward, in an attempt to steal a march on Barcelona, has told Dybala's representatives that if he ever decides to leave Juventus, Mourinho wants him at Old Trafford.

It's a clever move from Woodward to get inside Dybala's head so early on, although United would face a lot of competition for his signature.

As mentioned, Barcelona are long-term admirers of Dybala and view him as the player to eventually replace Messi at the Camp Nou.
