Paulo Dybala is set to leave Juventus in the summer on a free transfer after numerous reports have claimed that his contract talks have collapsed.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano previously reported that Juventus had a verbal agreement with Dybala back in October, which would have seen him earn €8 million plus €2 million net salary until 2026. However, the Biaconeri decided to later change their offer. The 28-year-old was not happy with the new conditions and will now begin talks with other clubs.
The Argentine had interest from Manchester United and Tottenham back in 2019 and has been linked with a move to Inter more recently, but it remains to be seen whether he will stay in Italy or move abroad this summer.
In an interview with TuttoMercatoWeb, Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene discussed Dybala’s future and seemingly confirmed his exit.
“The most important change is that Juventus have not renewed Paulo Dybala’s contract. With the market I reiterated this, the approach was sincere.
“With the purchases made in January, with the arrival of Vlahovic, Paulo’s position was no longer at the centre of the project. That’s why this kind of decision was preferred.
“The parameters were different, I had already spoken about it, no one has ever questioned Paulo’s ability. There were considerations to be made about appearances, length and financial considerations.
“We made our choices in January, we got here. It would have been easy for Juventus to make a low bid, but it would have been disrespectful towards Paulo. The decision is made. Today’s meeting was friendly, clear and respectful,” he added.
Despite struggling with various injuries, Dybala has featured 29 times for Juventus, scoring 13 goals and providing 6 assists in the process.
Since joining from Palermo in 2015, “La Joya” has amassed 113 goals and 48 assists in 283 appearances for the Bianconeri. He has also won five Scudettos and four Coppa Italia titles across his seven seasons in Turin.
