Dybala Rebuffs Al-Nassr, Primed for Sizeable Pay Bump

Despite the usual buzz and offers, Paulo Dybala is once again more likely to stay at Roma than to leave. He recently received a proposal from Al Nassr, but their chase didn’t have much legs. The suitors were ready to tender €20M per year, but La Joya has no interest in moving to Saudi Arabia for now, Tuttomercatoweb informed.

On the other hand, the Giallorossi should be more open to negotiating a new contract this summer than in previous windows. His wages will grow from €4M to €7.5M plus €2M add-ons. They got him on at a low rate following his Juventus exit, but that will cease to be the case in two weeks.

Dybala has been linked to Inter, which might be keen down the line should their main plans fall through. On the other hand, the Argentine’s release clause is valid only until mid-July. If a Serie A team activates it, Roma can neutralize it by giving the player a €5M bonus, Corriere dello Sport informs.

At this stage, there have been no talks between the entourage of the striker and new Giallorossi director Florent Ghisolfi to discuss a new deal. It could happen later in the summer.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma would have a substitute in mind to possibly succeed Dybala: Matias Soulé. He’s pricey, but the capital club wishes to raise funds by selling Tammy Abraham to an English team for €25/30M. The Bianconeri want at least €40M, though, Alfredo Pedullà reports.
