According to rumors, Paulo Dybala will not sign a new contract and will depart the club in the summer.

Paulo Dybala is expected to depart Juventus at the end of this season. On Monday, the Argentine striker’s representatives met with Juventus representatives to discuss his contract status, which is set to expire this summer. Paulo Dybala, according to CBS source Fabrizio Romano, would not accept Juventus’ current offer for their attacking midfielder. The meeting was vital in determining Dybala’s destiny, and whether he would sign a new contract and stay in Turin or become one of the most sought-after free agents this summer.

And it appears that the solution is that he will become a free agent. Dybala and Juventus, according to Sky Sports Italia, have been unable to reach an agreement.

When Fabio Paratici (now at Tottenham) was still in charge, talks for a renewal began well before the initial COVID-19 breakout in 2019. Recent talks between Paratici’s replacement, Federico Cherubini, and Dybala’s agent, Jorge Antun, have moved things even further. It had been a long and drawn-out process, but it appeared to bear fruit last November, when both parties appeared to be on the verge of agreeing to a five-year deal for €10 million each season, with add-ons. It was meant to be inked before January, but Dybala, who has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, suffered yet another setback. Between November and December, he missed four games.

Meanwhile, Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene spoke out against him before the Supercoppa match against Inter Milan. “Whoever wears our ten must understand the significance of this number for us,” he stated. The team requested that Dybala and his agency address his contract status again in February. Dybala was taken aback by the proposal since he had been planning to sign his new contract for weeks. The club then requested that the meeting be rescheduled for the International break in March, and both parties felt that the agreement, which had appeared to be all but done, was now exceedingly difficult to obtain. This meeting ultimately took place on Monday, and the conclusion was exactly what many had predicted.

If nothing unexpected happens in the coming weeks, Paulo Dybala will depart Juventus in the summer. Inter Milan, according to Argentinian journalist Luis Merlo, is one of the teams interested in Dybala, and a meeting between the Italian club and Dybala’s agency will take place in the coming days to discuss a possible transfer. The Dybala drama is only beginning, and many more European teams will undoubtedly enter the race to recruit him.
