Juventus’ negotiations with Paulo Dybala over a contract extension “fell at an impasse with Old Lady who offered the Argentine LESS than their proposal last year as the star earns £10m a year to display his stake after Cristiano Ronaldo”
- Talks between Juventus and Paulo Dybala over a new contract stall
- Reports in Italy suggest the Argentine earns £10m a year
- However, Juventus is financially inflexible due to the coronavirus pandemic
- The Italian giants see Dybala as an important part of their future post Cristiano Ronaldo
Negotiations between Juventus and Paulo Dybala have reached an impasse, according to reports in Italy, with the Argentine waiting for an improved offer as the old lady appears to be switching from Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Italian giants waved goodbye to Ronaldo last month, with the Portuguese superstar sensationally returning to Manchester United 12 years after leaving Old Trafford.
Juve had their worst season in a decade last season when Andrea Pirlo led Turin’s side to fourth in Serie A, while being dumped out of the Champions League by Porto in the last 16.
Talks between Paulo Dybala and Juventus over a contract extension have reportedly hit a wall

New boss Massimiliano Allegri is now tasked with bringing the club forward and star striker Dybala is seen as an important part of their future.
Dybala’s current contract – worth £6.2million a year – will expire next summer, however, meaning Juve will have to act quickly to tie the Argentine down or risk losing him in 12 months.
And Calcio Mercato reports that talks between Juventus and Dybala have hit a wall with the two sides unable to agree on the 27-year-old’s salary.
The Italian outlet reports that Dybala agrees with the club’s vision for the future and wants to fill the void left by Ronaldo. However, the Old Lady’s offer – which is reportedly less than what the club put on the table last summer – has been rejected.

The Argentinian reportedly has a salary comparable to the £10 million Matthijs de Ligt earns
The financial fallout from the coronavirus pandemic has limited Juventus’ flexibility to negotiate.
Dybala is reportedly expecting an amount close to the amount paid to Matthijs de Ligt when he signed in 2019 (£10.3million), but Calcio Mercato says the club will struggle to secure a to offer comparable wages to pre-Covid.
The Argentine is reportedly willing to commit his future to the club until 2025 or 2026, but is adamant he wants the club to reflect their value to him with a lucrative contract.
The 27-year-old has scored 101 goals in 256 appearances for the Italian club, and has provided 42 assists to his team-mates since leaving Palermo in 2015.
