The Argentine striker is close to leaving Juventus after the surprising new decision of the leadership team “Old Lady”.
According to Gazzetta dello Sports , the contract renewal process between Paulo Dybala and Juventus suddenly stalled when the new sporting director Mauro Arrivabene of the “Old Lady” decided to change the basic terms.
Specifically, the proposed salary from 10 million euros/season was reduced to 7.3 million euros/season, or even less, due to the striker’s poor condition recently and Juve’s financial ability.
This decision is said to anger Dybala. The Argentine striker refused to sign a contract, while Juve were listening to offers to sell Dybala as soon as January.
The contract between the Argentine striker and Juve will expire in June 2022, and the striker born in 1993 is planning to leave the Allianz Stadium team on a free transfer.
GDS said Inter Milan is the club that wants to have Dybala’s services on a free form this summer. The man who brought this striker to Juve in 2015, Beppe Marotta, is Inter’s sporting director and wants to reunite with the Argentine striker.
Inter currently does not have the economic capacity to pay a salary of 10 million euros/season for Dybala, but the plan to push away high-paid stars with little contribution such as Arturo Vidal, Matias Vecino at the end of the season is considered to help Inter have enough money to offer Dybala a suitable salary.
Dybala is expected to shoulder Juve’s attack this season when Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer playing at the Allianz Stadium. However, the player born in 1993 has only kicked 1343 minutes after 20 matches this season for Juve, averaging only 67 minutes per game, and has 9 goals and 4 assists.
These numbers are not impressive enough. Juve are currently only 5th in the Serie A table, 11 points behind the leader of Inter but have played 1 more game. In the Italian Super Cup match, Juve lost to Inter 1-2. Dybala was not allowed to play from the start and only came on in the second half of the second half.
