Pogba wore the shirt for 12 impressive months before joining United in a world record £89million deal.

Dybala looked set to inherit the jersey last season, but it remained vacated for a year.

However, it now has a new owner.

The 23-year-old is considered one of the brightest prospects in the game and was a target for United, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Three wearers have claimed the Ballon d’Or — with one winning it three times in a row.

SunSport picks out five legends to have worn that No10 for the Bianconeri.

Omar Sivori — 1957 to 1965

Argentine was John Charles’ strike partner in Turin.

He moved to Juventus in 1957 and revolutionised a club which had been going through somewhat of a slump.

Sivori took up Italian nationality and was named European Footballer of the Year in 1961.

He won three Serie A titles and two Italian Cups.

Michel Platini won the Ballon d’Or three years in a row from 1983 to 1985

Before becoming a disgraced Uefa president, Platini was pretty decent footballer.

In fact, there was only Diego Maradona at the time between himself and a place as the world’s No1 footballer.

He moved to Juve from St Etienne following an impressive display at the World Cup for France.

Platini became the catalyst of of the club’s most successful period ever, as he led the Bianconeri to the Italian title twice, a Coppa Italia, a Cup Winners’ Cup, a Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup and a first-ever European Cup.

He was Serie A top goal scorer for three consecutive seasons, and only the first player to win the Ballon d’Or three years in a row until a certain Lionel Messi achieved the feat in 2011.

In fact, new boss, Marcello Lippi, decided Juventus had become too reliant on Baggio and for that season sold him to AC Milan in 1996.

He won a league and cup double in his final season in Turin and a Uefa Cup in 1993.

Baggio once scored four goals in the opening 20 minutes of a 5-1 win over Ancona, with team-mate David Platt, admitting: “I don’t think I’ve seen a better performance from any player in any game I’ve ever played in.”

Alessandro Del Piero — 1995 to 2012

The Argentine was only at for two seasons after completing his £27million move, but he did the No10 shirt justice.

It had remained unclaimed for the season immediately after Del Piero’s departure.

Tevez scored 19 league goals as Juventus won third consecutive Serie A title in 2014.
