Allegri shares his thoughts on Dybala extension

by | Jan 14, 2022 14:04

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri praises Paulo Dybala but insists the striker’s contract extension is not up to him.

Dybala’s current deal with the Bianconeri expires at the end of the season, and according to multiple reports the Bianconeri are going to change the terms of the agreement they had reached with their No.10, throwing his future at the Allianz Stadium into doubt.

Dybala joined Juventus in 2015 and is now being linked with Tottenham, Inter and Barcelona.

Juventus had offered him a new €10m-a-year deal, but they will likely lower their offer, putting just €7.3m on the table, which is just as much Dybala currently earns.

The Serie A giants will resume talks in February, but Dybala is already eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with any other club.

Allegri was asked updates on the player’s future but remained elusive on the matter.

“As I’ve always said, the club is in charge of contracts and negotiations. It’s not up to me. But I’ve grown Dybala, he was a kid when he arrived here, now he has more experience and he is an extraordinary player,” Allegri said.

“He had to deal with some injuries in the first part of the season and everyone expects a lot from him, in terms of goals and performances. The player’s worth is not under question. Paulo is a great player.”

Alvaro Morata’s time in Turin could also be over at the end of the season as his loan spell ends in June. How will Allegri deal with so many players with an uncertain future?

“These situations are normal in football and work. The manager of a big company has the same commitment also when his contract is close to expiring. Football is based on the pitch. You need to go and prove your worth. Even if a player wants to leave, he has to play and deliver until the end of his contract.

“It’s very easy, if you don’t do well, you find a contract, at Juventus or anywhere else. It’s not that difficult. If you do well, you can decide what to do and this counts for everyone, coaches, players and directors. The only thing that matters is to do well on the pitch.

“Actually, if a contract is expiring, you have more strength. There are many players in this situation [in the world].

“Director Arrivabene said clearly that all assessments will be made in March-Apri. Wee must focus on the pitch and the club will do the rest.”

    The 10 Million dollar question is their a club willing to pay him $10M. I personally don’t believe so.


    If Dybala wanted to stay at Juve he would’ve signed the $10mm offer long ago. The fact that it got to this point is frustrating, but Juve we’re right to lower their previous agreement – Dybala wants to test the market and apply leverage on negotiations. I fee insulted by that because the original $10mm offer was more than fair and the club obviously does too hence the new offer @ $7.5mm.


    Dybala or his agent or both wanted to test the market… well this is the price you pay… if Dybala wasn’t as injury prone or didnt disappear as much in big games I’m sure Juve wouldn’t have renegotiated the terms. Facts are facts.

    Have no fear the 2 times CL winners as well as former Serie b champions are already looking into Loftus Cheek, Origi and Martial. A formidable team is being rebuilt to finish 7th and sideshow Sandro will be playing at Jube till he is 42.

    Corgi you forgot to mention 36x Serie A winners. In fact a total of 67 domestic and international titles, the highest in Italy by some measure – choke on that fact. As always, Juve will be fine, just worry about your club.
