Not that long ago, towards the end of the summer transfer window, he was rumoured to be in Barcelona’s list, after Neymar’s shocking departure from the club. A few weeks down the road, he seems willing to commit to Juventus long-term, and the Turin club couldn’t be happier.
We will soon lock him down to a new contract – it’s what he asked us for
Giuseppe Marotta, the club’s CEO told La Stampa, revealing that it’s a matter of time before Juventus and Paulo Dybala sign a new deal.
He is priceless, because we are not a selling club. I always repeat that a player has his future in his hands and Paulo just said he wants to tie himself to our club for life
Marotta said. How easy will that be? One thing is for sure, Juventus will need to pay big money to make Dybala one of the best paid players in the world.
That means we will make another big financial sacrifice to keep him
Juve’s CEO said, knowing that to keep a player of his calibre and potential (he’s still 23, he can grow to become the world’s best, or at least one of the 4-5 best), the club will need to pay him accordingly.
