Paulo Dybala's agent admits on-field issues with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo & Paulo Dybala

Cristiano Ronaldo's first season with Juventus has certainly been a mixed bag.

While the Portuguese has scored goals out in Italy and collected another league title, his main ambition of continental dominance with the Bianconeri was brought to and end in abrupt style.

Many had Juve as the clear favourites for the competition before a ball was kicked, but the Italian Goliath were brought down by the world's favourite David in Ajax.

Matthijs de Ligt's header in Turin sealed the team and Ronaldo's fate, making the last month or so rather dull for the club.

The Serie A title has been sewn up pretty much since Christmas, while the club haven't even had the Coppa Italia to compete for after being eliminated by Atalanta.

As such, a lot of the focus during the last few months and weeks has been on how Juve turn their current predicament around in the summer.

Aaron Ramsey is already arriving from Arsenal on a free transfer and there is also expected to be some more significant arrivals and departures.

And one of those looks like it will be Paulo Dybala, who has had a torrid season in the wake of Ronaldo's arrival, scoring just five goals in 28 Serie A appearances.

The latest comments from his agent speak volumes about Juve's bold decision to bring the Portuguese to the club.

"There's no problems with [Ronaldo] off the field, the problems are on it," Gustavo Dybala told Radio Impact Cordoba, per Marca. "You cannot beat [Ronaldo] and Paulo is young.

"There are many possibilities that Paulo leaves Juve, he needs a change. He's not happy and he's not the only one who'll leave. Many players are unhappy at Juventus, not just Paulo.

Gustavo added: "He was very comfortable in Italy, but now he's not."

That's sadly the impact a player like Ronaldo will have, because he will undoubtedly be the star and focal point of the team.

Prior to his arrival, that position belonged to Dybala and he became one of Europe's finest players.

The Premier League elite, Atletico Madrid and many more have been after him for some time and this summer, the bidding war looks like it will finally begin.
