Paulo Dybala kept alive the possibility of being reunited with former Juventus team-mate Paul Pogba after Manchester United‘s last-gasp 2-1 Champions League win.

The pair spent a season together in Turin before Pogba’s return to Old Trafford in 2016, and remain good friends.

Despite Juve throwing away the lead to lose, with Pogba involved in the winning goal, Dybala admitted it was good to see is friend again.

‘It was great to see to see Paul again because we’re good friends,’ the 24-year-old told reporters on Thursday.

‘The first game [at Old Trafford] was amazing for me, and the second for him.

‘But it was just nice to play against him. We have remained in touch since he left [Juventus].

‘We’re still very close and who knows, maybe in the future we can play together again on the same team…’

While Pogba has long since departed The Old Lady, Dybala is confident Cristiano Ronaldo can prove a decisive acquisition after joining in the summer.

Between them, Dybala and Ronaldo have already contributed 14 goals this season, and Dybala expects more to come. 

‘We have a good chance this year because Cristiano is a great player and now we have more options,’ the Argentina international enthused.

‘But we have been playing well for years. We have lost two finals in the past four years and last year we played a great game against Real and were unlucky to lose.

‘So yes, I think that we can do it this year. But the goal every year is to win every title.

‘Obviously this year it may look like the Champions League is an obsession but we’re also focused on domestic trophies. ‘We want to win another Scudetto.’
