Barcelona Eye Roma Star Waiting For a New Contract

Paulo Dybala would be a bargain for foreign teams if he decided to flee Roma, as he has a €12M release clause, and Barcelona are reportedly contemplating going after him. However, he’s not a priority, nor does he seem in a rush to leave the Italian capital.

Per Sport (via Mediaset), the Argentine could become an option for the Blaugrana if he didn’t extend his contract with the Giallorossi, especially if they couldn’t keep Joao Felix. There has been no meeting between the parties at this stage. The Italian side is still in the process of hiring a new director after the departure of Tiago Pinto. West Ham and Atletico Madrid are also monitoring the situation.

On the other hand, amid the Barcelona buzz, Dybala once again professed his love for Roma and the Eternal City during a Serie A-produced show (via OneFootball).

“Everything related to the Roman empire has always interested me. It’s magic and enormous. The first time I left Argentina, I came here, and it was a dream come true. The amount of history here is unique. The problem of walking in the streets is that you get recognized. When somebody stops you, then everyone else does it, and you have to make them happy.”

Our Take on Dybala and Barcelona

It’s pretty clear where the rumors come from, but he’ll have to wait for a renewal. On the other hand, his entourage has always been a lot more restless than him.
