The 28-year-old’s time in Turin is over after that his entourage failed to reach an agreement with Juventus over his contract extension. Dybala will leave the Serie A giants when his contract expires at the end of the season.
There have been plenty of reactions on social media with Juventus fans split over the club’s decision not to meet their striker’s economic demands.
Despite his injury story, Dybala has many admirers in Italy and around Europe. Inter director Beppe Marotta signed him for €40m at Juventus seven years ago and according to multiple reports, he is keen to reunite with the Argentinean striker. It remains to be seen if Dybala will agree to join one of Juventus’ opponents, but given the circumstances, his desire for revenge may persuade him to stay in Italy.
Dybala is quite disappointed by the end of negotiations with Juventus, as highlighted by his brother’s reaction on Instagram. There have been unconfirmed reports about interest from Milan as well, but the Rossoneri may struggle to pay more than €7m in wages, especially if Zlatan Ibrahimovic stays at the club. The Milanese sides seem to be the only Serie A clubs that can afford Dybala in the summer.
There are more options from abroad. Antonio Conte already tried to sign Dybala at Inter and Fabio Paratici was at Juventus seven years ago, when the striker moved to Turin. There have been multiple reports in Italy regarding Tottenham’s interest in La Joya, while La Gazzetta dello Sport mentioned Liverpool and Manchester City in January. Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are also monitoring the situation. Diego Simeone met Dybala for dinner in 2018 and is a huge admirer of his compatriot.
As of today, Dybala hasn’t received any concrete offer from any club, but his agent will soon sit down with clubs interested in securing his services, given that his time in Turin will end in a few months.
