- Despite having a verbal agreement with the player’s agent, Juventus is now considering a new downward agreement
It rains on wet in Turin around Paulo Dybala . The Argentine, who has never finished being the crack he pointed out he would be, lives these days with the happiness of being with the Argentina team before facing the transcendental conversation about his renewal with Juventus once the winter transfer market closes .
The truth is that, what should have been simply putting the stamp on a pre-agreement reached in December, it seems that it will go in other directions. The imminent arrival of Dusan Vlahovic, with the investment that this entails, has meant that Juventus, which already had certain reserves, has made them grow exponentially .
The conversations are not going to be easy. In the last visit of Dybala ‘s agent last December, it was agreed that the new contract would be for 8 million euros and that this would imply an extension until 2026 . However, that was left in a verbal agreement because Juve already had in mind to go for Vlahovic, as it has finally happened, so the situation is totally different.
Now, the conversation in February will have all the shades of discomfort. At least for ‘La Joya’, who will be offered a lower contract to balance accounts and, also, because the club has certain reservations regarding a footballer who is injured a lot and does not perform at the star level that he indicates your contract.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, this offer would be around 7 million euros, the same amount that Vlahovic will receive, and with a contract until 2025 . The other alternative is even more drastic, which would be not to offer the renewal, with the risk that a competitor takes advantage of it.
The decision will be in the hands of Dybala , who was convinced of his continuity and was not considering an exit, but the lack of clarity from Juventus could make him change his mind.
It is not only a question of money, but also of project, so if Vlahovic really represents a boost, the Argentine could decide to accept the new terms, although he must first know what his role will be in this new organizational chart proposed by the club.
