And Dybala, who has scored 42 goals in 94 appearances for Juve, wrote on Instagram: "When they asked me to change my shirt number, I waited and thought if it was right to leave the 21 that was - and still will be on worldwide duty - a number I care about a great deal, which allowed me to lift many trophies and belonged to top players like Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo".

After receiving the coveted No.10 shirt of Juventus for the 2017-18 football season, Argentine forward Paulo Dybala has called the honour "a childhood dream come true" ahead of the Italian Super Coppa match against Lazio on Sunday.

"But the No.10 is special".

The jersey - vacant since Pogba left for Manchester United previous year - has also been worn by legends such as Omar Sivori, Michel Platini and Roberto Baggio and is recognition of the Argentina international's contribution since arriving from Palermo in 2015.

The Bianconeri confirmed on Wednesday that Dybala will trade in the No. 21 jersey he has sported since joining the club in 2015 for the No. 10, which lay vacant in 2016-17 after the exit of Paul Pogba. Ma la numero 10 e' una maglia speciale, e' un onore indossarla, porta con se' un senso di responsabilità grande, un senso di appartenenza alla storia di un club come la Juventus Fc.

The shirt has been worn by the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Andrea Pirlo, Alessandro Del Piero and Roberto Baggio in the past, and Dybala will hope it sees him go from strength to strength.
