Juventus take on Porto on Wednesday in the Champions League, but Paulo Dybala has taken time out of his preparation to celebrate the birthday of his favourite pop star.

The 23-year-old Argentine forward made headlines this week after being compared to compatriot Lionel Messi, with the Palermo president singing his praises.

Maurizio Zamparini brought Dybala to Italy from Argentina, and has claimed that the 'new Messi' is worth €150 million.

Dybala has other things on his mind, however, and re-shared a photograph he had taken with Rihanna to celebrate her 29th birthday.

The Juve attacker posted the picture, complete with the caption "Lovely memories! Shine bright like a diamond. Happy birthday queen!"
