Paulo Dybala was the star of the show for Roma this season and he wants a salary bump in his new contract with the club, Corriere dello Sport suggests.

The 29-year-old Argentine star signed for the Giallorossi last summer on a free transfer, penning a three-year contract. He is currently the highest paid player in the squad, with his goals and assists triggering enough add-ons to make his current salary around €6m net.

A key factor in Dybala’s contract is his €12m release clause, valid for foreign clubs. Roma want to remove this and protect their new talisman, but this will seemingly not come cheap, although the Argentinian’s happiness at the club does bode well.

Page 14 of today’s Corriere dello Sport reports that Dybala is currently on holiday until July 10, postponing any contract talks, but it’s become clear that he wants a raise in a new deal with Roma, especially as clubs from the Premier League have already contacted his entourage to express their interest.

Negotiations will soon kick off between Roma and Dybala’s agents, where the club will try to find a middle ground by adding lucrative add-ons to his deal and removing the release clause.
