Director Fabio Paratici Set to Stay at Juventus Despite Expiring Contract

The Agnelli family is not planning any shake-up of the Juventus management and therefore Fabio Paratici is poised to have his expiring contract extended, Tuttomercatoweb reports. Vicepresident Pavel Nedved and Federico Cherubini are also slated to be remain in their current positions.

Last October, the chairman modified the structure of the club, giving more duties to Cherubini, who was promoted to football director to coordinate the various squads at every level, while Paratici became the managing director of the football area but still remained the point man for the first team.

Paratici’s deal is up in the summer, but the negotiation has been going smoothly as ownership is opting for continuity. Multiple outlets believed this was going to be his final year with the Bianconeri since the Autumn reshaping of the front office could have been seen as a demotion, as he was previously the football chief officer of the club. The executive joined Juventus in 2010 alongside Giuseppe Marotta after six years in various roles at Sampdoria.

The publication indicates that the top priority will be to find a solution to the Paulo Dybala case, as the talks to prolong his contract, which lasts until 2022, have not progressed much in recent months and have not been helped by the fact that he has sidelined by a knee injury. Andrea Agnelli previously stated that the Argentinian attacker received an offer that would have made him of the 20 highest paid players in Europe, but that did not lead to the two parties putting pen-to-paper.
