Being an in-form, left-footed, Argentine footballer can only make for one comparison. Brock Holt Jersey . Paulo Dybalas performances for Juventus this season since moving from Palermo in the summer have been stunning, and the 22-year-olds 17 goals so far only tell half of the story.Known in his homeland as La Joya (The Jewel), Dybala shifts the gears quicker than his lightweight frame suggests, and that typically South American low centre of gravity has some in Italy making that oft-used analogy. Dybala has 17 goals in all competitions for Juventus this season Lionel Messi all over, correct? Not quite, says Sky in Italys Augusto De Bartolo. Dybalas thought and graft is in the mould of Carlos Tevez, and that is not to play down the potential impact he can have on the footballing world in the next few seasons.Dybala is very similar to Tevez in his style of play. He can play as a classic striker or as a forward free to roam on the flanks or in the middle, where I think he is best. He is in and out of defenders, never giving them a reference point as to where he will move next, both with and without the ball. Like Tevez, he is useful in the non-possession phase, pressing opponents high up the pitch.He is lethal in one-on-ones with the goalkeeper, has a superb first touch in front of goal and will shoot before the keeper has had a chance to set himself, like his goal against Manuel Neuer in the Champions League last week. Paul Pogba struggled at the start of this season, but has been in fine form since So where did the story begin? Dybala set the Argentina Primera B Nacional alight with Instituto in 2011/12, his hometown club famous for producing Ossie Ardiles and Mario Kempes, scoring 17 goals in 38 games and making his debut at 17. He then signed for Palermo in 2012, and was immediately labelled the new Sergio Aguero by club president Maurizio Zamparini. His first two seasons yielded just eight goals in 58 games as Palermo were relegated from Serie A and then promoted, before a fine season on his return to Serie A in 2014/15. He netted 13 times, prompting more over-emphatic praise from Zamparini again.  Dybala moved to Turin from Palermo for 40m euros including add-ons It would take 40m euros to sign him from us, he said. Within two years, hell be better than Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi.A bold call, but Zamparini was right about one thing. Dybala was taken to Juventus for 40m euros including add-ons, but the hype was more measured and his bedding-in more thought out when he arrived in Turin.De Bartolo explains: It was surprising the impact Dybala has had at Juventus. At the start of the season, despite the price tag, nobody thought he could have such an incisive first season. Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri has helped Dybala a lot in his growth. He has managed him in the right way from the beginning of the season, he didnt give him all of the responsibilities Tevez left behind and in his first 10 matches, played him only six times in the starting line-up.  Although the comparison with Lionel Messi is obvious, Sky in Italys Augusto De Bartolo says Dybala is more like Carlos Tevez (left) He wanted Dybala to understand the atmosphere around Juventus first - the club, the city, the supporters - without any pressure.Dybalas bedding-in came at a difficult time for the champions. Their 1-0 defeat by Sassuolo on October 28 marked their worst start to a season in 28 years, leaving them 12th. Juventus returned to winning ways against Torino three days later, before Dybala scored in the 3-1 win at Empoli, and then got the only goal against AC Milan two weeks later. Dybala was linked with several English clubs before moving to Juventus He had arrived, and Juve were now three victories into a 15-game winning streak. They now sit top of Serie A and are on course for a fifth straight league crown, and face Inter in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports 2 HD, having won the first leg 3-0.Besides Messi and Tevez, a comparison closer to home for Dybala would be Juventus resident superstar Paul Pogba, and while Sky in Italys De Bartolo insists their playing styles are in no way contiguous, he believes the Argentine is having far more of an impact on the side at present. Within two years, hell be better than Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi. Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini, speaking in 2014 Its not easy to compare Pogba and Dybala. They have different positions on the pitch, but I really think Dybala has been the more incisive player in Serie A this season.Dybala has become the leader of the team, not only because he has scored more but in his influence on the side. I can firmly say his performances have been to a higher standard than Pogba, and more consistently.So, what are the chances of seeing Dybala on these shores in the coming seasons? Despite being reportedly linked with Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea in some quarters of the British and Italian press in the summer, Dybala chose Champions League runners-up Juventus.  Pep Guardiola will take over as Manchester City manager in the summer Those three and more could come calling again, and while De Bartolo believes he will stay in Turin for a couple more seasons, he admits the board would think about a very big offer from, say, Pep Guardiolas Manchester City. Whats more, the future of Frenchman Pogba, linked with here, there and everywhere for the past two seasons, could have an influence.The new challenge for Juventus is to try to refuse the offer that will no doubt arrive from other big clubs. It will depend on the future of Pogba. Coppa Italia live on Sky AC Milan host Alessandria and Juve go to Inter If Juventus are going to sell a player, it will be Pogba this summer. I think Dybala will remain in Turin for a couple of years, but if City make a very big offer, the board will think about it.If he continues this form, Dybala could be a huge name in the world of football. He wont be the new Messi or Ronaldo, but he could reach the level of Aguero or Wayne Rooney.Would Dybala consider leaving Juventus for the Premier League?

VILLARREAL, Spain -- Villarreal hired Fran Escriba as its coach after parting ways with Marcelino Garcia on Thursday, less than week before it hosts a Champions League playoff first-leg match against Monaco.The Spanish club says that Escriba, a former manager of Elche and Getafe, will take over immediately.Villarreal did not give a reason for the departure of Marcelino in a short statement posted on its website earlier on Thursday.It is a surprising exit given both the approaching start to the season and Marcelinos superb run with the club in recent years. Villarreal has played some of the most attractive football in Spain, despite its limited budget compared to powerhouses Barcelona and Real Madrid.Marcelino brought success to Villarreal after being hired in 2013 when the former Champions League semifinalist was in the seconnd tier. Rafael Devers Jersey. Villarreal won promotion to La Liga and had three straight top-six finishes, and reached the Europa League semifinals last season.A fourth-place finish last season earned a place in the Champions League playoff round.Villarreal hosts Monaco on Wednesday, and the return match is six days later with a place in the lucrative group stage at stake.In-between those matches, Villarreal also starts the Spanish league season at Granada on Aug. 20.Escriba has coached in Spains topflight for the last three seasons after helping Elche win promotion in 2013. After two more seasons with Elche, he coached Getafe last season until he was fired in April following three months without a victory. Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
