‘The decision has been made’ – Juve director confirms Dybala reports

March 21, 2022 - 11:17 pm

Maurizio Arrivabene has confirmed that Juventus will not be offering Paulo Dybala improved terms, confirming earlier reports that the Argentine was now looking to make contact with other clubs.

The Old Lady have spoken to Dybala on a number of occasions this term, and were believed to have had a verbal agreement in place late in 2021, but the club are then accused of moving the goalposts.

Despite sitting down at least twice since to try and seal an agreement, that has seemingly fallen apart now, with reports that our forward will now be seeking out a new club to join in the coming summer on a free transfer, with words from Juve’s director confirming just those reports.

I can’t figure out if I’m more angry or sad reading that Dybala will no longer be at our club beyond the summer, whilst knowing that my beloved club is willing to let this happen so easily. If a verbal agreement was made in October, then the club should be willing to meet at those terms.

He will be a massive loss as we look to return to the top of the table, and his situation could easily affect our league form as we flirt with the idea of challenging for the scudetto. I cannot understand the thinking of those in charge here at all, and sincerely hope that there is a big change of heart on both sides of negotiations.

What is your favourite Dybala moment?

    I dont understand. They didn’t blink an eye to spend 75+ M for a forward, not counting the salary for 5 years yet they let a star go for free. I don’t know how much will be spent to get the replacement. 75m is 1.5 times what Dybala wanted (50m for salary for 5 years). At least, renew his contract and sell him for good money in the summer. Doesn’t seem like a good business but what do we know.

    As painful as it is, you cannot pay top dollar for a player who only plays half the games. Our budget is right and the money is better spent on one or two other players who will play most games.

    Obviously the lack of fitness is the issue at hand. If Dybala was starting 80% of matches this wouldn’t have even been an issue. His age is fine and performance is there. They are simply not going to be getting the ROI they would need to sign him for what he want. Football is a business no matter how much passion is involved. The club has to make sensible decisions unlike the purchase of Ronaldo. With Paulos injury trajectory we are dodging a bullet here by not resigning. But one can only wish we did it with one year left as we would have taken in a good amount for him by another team willing to risk a small fortune on a player that can’t take the pitch every weekend.

    It is a catch 22 for me. I love Dybala & think he has quality and is someone who I think deep down does NOT want to leave, but I can see his position. They had a verbal agreement & then Juve renegged on it. That would annoy anyone. On the other hand I understand Juve’s position. Dyblala has had injury problems and I was hoping he would take a lower salary with a higher bonus structure. I will be sad to see him go. Like DelPiero before him I think the whole situation could have & more importanly SHOULD have been handled better.

    Excelllent decision. The guy didn`t even have a certified agent! This is sloppy on his part and he can`t even negotiate in spain yet. How has this been overlooked by his entourage? He decided a season ago to leave, there has been no positive talk form him to want to stay. Scapegoats can be found for anything, the fact is he wanted to leave a long time ago, and if he wasn`t injured and playing well it might have bene a different conversation. To think he was staying was kinda naieve to be honest. He is not reliable enough to build a future around. I hope he goes to a topp Argentine club, simly so he can get back into the national side, because he`s still in messi`s shadow.

    From the fact that he seemed more injured than healthy, he had an agent AND someone in control of rights to images of him he didn’t seem to want to make things easy. The reality is that players come and go all the time. It is what it is.
