Report claims Juventus wants to change their agreement with Dybala

January 5, 2022 - 3:00 pm

Paulo Dybala is yet to sign a new Juventus contract and can now speak to other clubs.

The Argentinian has several suitors but wants to continue playing for Juventus.

The Bianconeri are also keen on continuing their relationship with the former Palermo man.

However, the player and the club need to reach an agreement before that can happen.

As things stand, he can leave the club at the end of this season for free and can even reach a pre-contract agreement with another employer.

Il Giornale via Tuttomercatoweb claims the attacker and Juve have agreed to a new deal until 2026.

He would earn 8.5m euros plus 1.5m euros in bonuses. However, it adds that the club’s board would also like to renegotiate that figure downwards.

Juve FC Says

It remains unclear why Juve would want to reduce their offer for the attacker, but it might not be unconnected to his fitness problems.

Dybala has hardly been fit this season and constantly needs to be treated for one injury or another.

This could be a sign that the Argentinian attacker’s body is telling him to start slowing down.

While the club hopes he would soon reach a peak fitness level, he might get worse as he grows older.

With that in mind, a shorter-term deal would protect the club from continuing to pay wages to a player who is hardly available for selection.

    If Juventus & Dybala cannot reach a consensus then maybe it’s time for him to move on. There is no doubting Dybala’s talent, but given his recent injury record and the fact that he is now 28, do we really want to commit to a long-term contract for 10s of millions for a player who we may not be able to rely on consistently. I think we need two new #9s with Vlahovic & Scamacca the ideal pair given their age and the fact they are both flourishing in Serie A. We need more power throughout the team and those two players would certainly give the opposition plenty to worry about. I think we need to let our highest earners go and replace them with hungry younger players who want to play for the shirt and not just their wage packets. I don’t think Dybala has done anything to justify a wage increase, especially during the times we are living through. He is still being paid millions a year, so surely if he really wants to stay then surely a compromise could be thrashed out. These negotiations have been going on so long now that’s it’s just become tedious and it needs to be dealt with once and for all. Juventus need to make a final take it or leave it to offer and if Dybala won’t sign then he should leave.

    Dybala needs to move on. Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham, in that order, would put him to good use.
