Old enemies Paratici and Marotta prepare for final Dybala showdown

by | Jan 21, 2022 15:06

Fabio Paratici and Beppe Marotta signed Paulo Dybala at Juventus for €40m in 2015 and will likely battle for his signature as a free agent in the summer.

Dybala runs out of his Juventus contract at the end of the season. He had reached an agreement to extend his stay at the club until 2026, but the Bianconeri are expected to change the terms of the agreement by offering him lower wages.

The latest report from Tuttosport suggests the Serie A giants will offer Dybala a 15% pay cut and the 28-year-old may decide to leave Turin as a free agent in the summer.

TycSports in Argentina reported last week that La Joya is unwilling to sign a new deal under the new conditions.

Both Tottenham and Inter are reportedly interested in signing the striker as a free agent. Ironically, their directors, Fabio Paratici and Beppe Marotta brought the Argentinean to Turin in a €40m deal from Palermo in 2015.

During his last press conference at Juventus in June, Paratici said that the signing of Dybala has been the ‘riskiest in his career.’

Marotta had claimed something similar in the past, saying his ‘wrists were shaking’ while he was putting pen to paper on the agreement with Palermo.

Marotta and Paratici brought Juventus to the top of Italian and European football after joining the club from Sampdoria in 2011.

However, their relationship fell apart in 2018 after Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus. Paratici pushed to finalise the deal with Real Madrid despite Marotta not being entirely convinced about the financial aspect of the operation.

The 64-year-old left Juventus a few months after Ronaldo’s move to Turin and has recently claimed that he does not have a good relationship with Paratici.

“I am on good terms with everyone at Juventus, except Paratici,” Marotta told Tuttosport in May 2021.

“The problem is on a human level, not professional.”

Juventus will resume talks with Dybala in February, but in case they fail to reach an agreement, Paratici and Marotta will cross paths again, trying to secure the signature of La Joya.
