Juventus Come to Terms with Star Striker on Much Awaited New Deal

Paulo Dybala and Juventus have an agreement in place for the extension. The negotiation is down the final details, but the bulk of it has been concluded. After spending two months in Turin to take care of it, his agent Jorge Antun left Italy yesterday.

According to Goal.com and La Gazzetta dello Sport, the club and the players have come to terms on the key details of the new pact. Dybala will earn €8M plus add-ons, which could potentially help him reach the double-digit threshold. The expiration date will be pushed to 2025, when he will be 32.

The newspaper reports that Juventus imitated what Bayern Munich did with Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka. For economic reasons, they could not give the Argentinian striker €10M-per-year right away. But his salary will automatically rise if he reaches some personal targets, like a quota of appearances, goals and assists, for two seasons in a row.

Dybala will become the highest-paid player on the Juventus roster on a par with Matthijs De Ligt. If he stayed for the entirety of the contract, he would spend ten years at the club. The lawyers are currently finalizing the paperwork before the parties put pen-to-paper.

La Joya will not play with Argentina during the second break as he is nursing a thigh injury that cost him the last two games against Chelsea and Torino. He should recover in time for the clash with Roma coming up in two weeks. He has hit the net three times so far.
