Paulo Dybala says he cannot "promise" that he will stay at Juventus for the rest of his career and admits he misses former team-mate Paul Pogba.
The Argentine joined Juventus in 2015 from Palermo and has scored 42 Serie A goals for the Turin club.
Pogba played alongside Dybala in his final season at Juventus before the Frenchman made his then-world record transfer to Manchester United in August 2016.
Amid speculation surrounding his future, Dybala has refused to rule out a move away from Juventus.
"I must admit I miss Dani Alves and Pogba. Alves has an amazing vision and is really self-confident, he is one of the best players I've ever seen. Pogba is a friend of mine, we were on very good terms on and off the pitch," Dybala told France Football.
"I can't promise I will stay at Juventus forever. It does not depend on me but I don't even want to say that this will be my last season here. I want to win everything now, football is strange you never really know what will happen in the future."
Dybala has made a strong start to the new season, scoring 14 goals in 18 games in all competitions, but the forward is not fazed by comparisons to compatriot Lionel Messi.
"I'd like to battle it out with Neymar for the Ballon d'Or but he is closer to that achievement than I am," Dybala added. "I need to work to improve and win trophies.
"I've always admired Ronaldinho but Messi is like Maradona for me. It's a honour to play alongside him in the national team. I don't feel the pressure of being the new Messi, it's not a bad thing for a footballer, it only depends on how you take it."
