Paulo Dybala is proving himself to be the real deal at Roma and the club are reportedly working on a new contract for the 2022 World Cup winner.
The 29-year-old Argentinian forward ended a seven-year association with Juventus in the summer and joined up with the Giallorossi on a free transfer, penning a three-year deal with the club. Despite a brief hamstring issue, Dybala’s start at Roma has gone well and he’s directly contributed to 13 goals across 16 games this campaign.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, Roma are looking to activate a clause present in Dybala’s existing contract, which would increase his salary and remove his release clause.
The Argentinian forward currently earns €4.2m net per season and this would be increased to €6m, enough to automatically remove the release clause present in his current. Dybala’s current contract allows him to leave Roma for only €12m for a foreign club or €20m for an Italian side.
All parties must agree to the deal and this will take some time, the report highlights. Dybala is happy with Roma but wants to understand the Friedkins’ future plans for the club, as does coach Jose Mourinho. The parties will meet after March to discuss the project in Rome and what the future plans are.
