As confirmed by club president Andrea Agnelli, Paulo Dybala does have a contract offer on the table at Juventus, but Goal has heard that those conditions date back to June and that no new approach has been made.
A highly-rated Argentine forward, as things stand, is set to enter free agency in the summer of 2022.
Juve is understandably hesitant to see his contract and value in the transfer market run down by a valued commodity.
There has been a willingness on the part of those in Turin to put an extension in place, but as no documentation has been signed, talks have stalled.
That is because, with the 27-year-old and his members of the opinion that they deserve better, the agreement put to Dybala over the summer was deemed inappropriate.
The South American frontman was keen to avoid being drawn into a financial debate and accused the Juve boardroom of seeking to turn his fans against him.
In a long-running saga, Dybala told Sky Sport Italia: “So many things have been said in relation to my contract that is not true.”
My agent spent a long time in Turin and was never called up by the club. It disappoints me to hear talk of the financial figures spent.
“It would be better if the truth could be told, because with all the love I have for Juventus, talking about those aspects in this period pits the fans against me.”
Agnelli reacted to those remarks, and the president of Bianconeri was happy to point out that contact had been made.
He told Tuttosport: “After contracting Covid, Paulo had a difficult time.” With great pleasure, I learned of his passion for Juventus. The affection is reciprocated.
We see him as a potential captain.
I know he’s already got a plan that would make him one of Europe’s top 20 best-paid players. We look forward to his reply.’
As meetings were held over the summer, it is known that Juve’s proposal has not been revised.
Since then there has been no movement, although the entourage of Dybala remains open to further talks.
