Juventus and Paulo Dybala are in talks to extend the Argentine contract until June 2025, according to Italian media. The player has demanded a salary increase of ten million euros a season.
According to the Italian newspaper Tuttosport, the Argentine is ready to sign a new contract and the Bianconeri have realized that they had made a mistake that they were willing to sell him last summer.
Paulo Dybala was rumored throughout the summer of 2019 of a possible move to Manchester United or Tottenham, but in the end he decided to stay in Turin.
The Argentine has been in impressive form during this 2019/20 season, scoring 11 goals and 11 assists in 28 games played. However, he had recently admitted that he had almost left Juventus before this summer.
“I was close to leaving. The club had this in mind, I knew that. Until the last minute, we were waiting, ”Dybala said in an interview with the British Guardian.
“I have two more years left on my contract. This is not a short time, but it is not long either. We will see what Juventus plans, if they think I should leave for summer or want me to stay.
“This is a decision that the club must make. I find it difficult because things can change within a second. ”
“But I’m here at a club that has treated me well. I am happy and comfortable. The arrival of Maurizio Sarri has helped me. He wanted me to stay and that gave me strength when I didn’t know what was going to happen. I knew he could teach me, he could get the best out of me. ”
It seems Juventus have now made the decision and want to offer a new contract to the Argentine, who on the other hand is demanding ten million euros a year.
Dybala has been at Juventus since 2015, when he moved to Italy after three seasons with Palermo.
