Argentina’s current deal expires at the end of the year, but his club are ready to make him their central figure in Turin
Paulo Dybala reveals that he expects to resume negotiations with Juventus over a new contract after leading the Italian giants to a comfortable Champions League victory on Tuesday.
The Argentine scored the penalty during a 3-0 win over Malmö, with Alex Sandro and Alvaro Morata joining him on the standings.
It was a welcome return to form the Juve, who have struggled to impress so far in Serie A following the retirement of Cristiano Ronaldo.
What was said?
‘I think there will be a new meeting this week. The directors have changed, so we started from the beginning, ”Dybala explained Sky Sports to the final whistle.
‘We hope to draw a happy conclusion; I hope there will be good news soon. ‘
The forward added to Sport Mediaset: “I always try to give everything. The parties are talking, we are all on the same page and hoping to reach a happy conclusion. ”
The bigger picture
Dybala’s current deal expires at the end of the current term, and reports in Italy suggest he is aiming for a substantial wage increase to sign an extension after more than six years in Turin.
After the match, the club’s director, Pavel Nedved, also insisted that the Argentine was crucial to Juve’s plans.
“We have put Dybala at the center of our project,” he said. “We are counting on the player and will try to sign the contract as soon as possible.”
Tuesday’s victory was a welcome relief for the Old Lady after a difficult start to the 2021-22 season.
The club sits in the relegation zone in Serie A after three games, having scored a single point so far.
