Juventus and Paulo Dybala are far apart over the contract extension


The Old Lady are struggling to reach fresh terms with the Argentine ace.

Juventus are reportedly struggling to persuade Paulo Dybala to sign a new contract.

The Argentine forward has entered the final year of his current deal, and the Old Lady have been reportedly working over the contract extension for a long time.

The report also adds that the Old Lady haven’t met with Dybala’s agent in a while, thus putting the agent’s future at great risk.

It was reported earlier that Juve couldn’t afford Dybala’s salary demands due to the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo. Although the Portuguese skipper left the club for Manchester United, the Italian giants are still far from convincing Dybala to pen a new contract.

Dybala was heavily linked with an exit following a disappointing season last term, where he struggled for game time under Andrea Pirlo.

However, Max Allegri’s return has changed the scenario as the Italian gaffer identified the Argentine as the key player for his project.

Dybala appears to be committed to Juve, but he can still agree to pre-contract with other clubs this winter if an agreement over a new deal is not reached.

The 26-year-old has regained his form in Serie A this season, scoring a goal and an assist in two games thus far, although Juve were collectively poor.

Since Ronaldo’s departure, Dybala’s responsibility has doubled, and Allegri relies on him to spearhead the attack.

It would be cruel for Juve to lose a player of Dybala’s quality and for everything he has done for the club over the years.
