Paulo Dybala is ready to sign his contract extension with Juventus and there’s a willingness on behalf of all parties to get the deal done before Christmas.
The Argentine’s contract has been a source of slight angst for Juventus supporters, although there was never any doubt that the player would commit his long-term future to the Bianconeri. While La Joya has endured a couple of minor injury setbacks this term, he’s the club’s leading scorer with eight goals in all competitions.
After he scored Juve’s second in the 2-0 victory over Genoa on Sunday night, Dybala hinted that the false accounting investigation Juventus are currently subject to had delayed the process regarding his new deal.
“Right now the club has other things to resolve so for now we can wait on this, what’s happening now is more important than my contract,” the Argentine said.
Juventus want Dybala to sign new contract before Christmas
The latest from Romeo Agresti suggests that Dybala could gift Juventini an early Christmas present – just in case his magical performances weren’t enough. According to the Goal Italia reporter, Dybala’s agent, Jorge Antun, is preparing to return to Turin to finalise his client’s extension with Juventus.
Agresti adds that “all parties want to sign before Christmas”.
Dybala’s extension was all but agreed back in October with the player set to sign until the summer of 2026. That means the Argentine will be 33 by the time his proposed new deal expires. It’s understood that the playmaker could earn upwards of €10m per season (including bonuses).
Those weird Liverpool rumours
Calciomercato.com decided to throw a spanner in the works and create a fantastical rumour about Dybala joining Liverpool on a free transfer.
Jumping on the Argentine’s coy comments regarding his future after the Genoa win, the source wrote that Liverpool would be keen on speaking to the player over a potential pre-contract agreement.
That rumour, however, has quickly been shunned by the latest developments surrounding Dybala’s contract extension with Juventus.
