Juventus director Fabio Paratici has confirmed that the club has opened the talks with Paulo Dybala over a new contract. The striker’s current deal will expire in the summer of 2022 and it had been suggested that the Argentinian would be willing to leave the club as talks over a new deal were delayed for months. Paratici has now confirmed that the two parties have started the negotiations.
“We’re in talks to extend Paulo Dybala‘s contract,” he confirmed to Sky in Italy. “He wants to stay and we want to keep him, he’s part of our future. We’ll continue the negotiations to find an agreement.” Dybala was one of Juventus’ key players in their Serie A title season last term, playing 33 league games and scoring 11 goals.
This season he has only made two appearances due to injury struggles. Dybala has featured in Juve’s win over Napoli in the Serie A and their midweek win over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League. On Sunday Andrea Pirlo decided to rest Dybala as the Italians will play in the Champions League against FC Barcelona on Tuesday and the Argentinian is expected to start.
