Paulo Dybala says he’s keen for Barcelona captain Lionel Messi to return to the national team.

Messi hasn’t featured for Argentina since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and it’s not clear when or if he will play for his country again.

Dybala wants to see Messi back in action but admits it’s up to the Barcelona star to decide what he wants to do.

“We all want Messi back in the national team,” he said.

“We all know the importance of Leo for us, but it’s up to him. We are a group made up of many young players and we need the support of the people.”
