Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has responded to suggestions that the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo is behind his decline.
Dybala, 25, has netted just 10 goals in all competitions this season and has subsequently been linked with Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Juve legend Marco Tardelli suggested this week the presence of Ronaldo is causing Dybala to "suffer", but the talented forward has moved quickly to dampen the claims.
"When we talk about Juve, we're talking about an important club, who have always had great champions," he told Tuttosport.
"Playing alongside them is always a pleasure. It gives me joy and huge satisfaction.
"Of course, I enjoy [playing alongside Ronaldo]. Cristiano's a champion and it's always a pleasure to play with guys like him. Ronaldo makes things that are very difficult actually seem easy."
Dybala has scored 78 goals and registered 31 assists in 179 games across all compeitions for the Bianconeri since his €40m (R645) switch from Palermo in 2015.
