Roma Exec ‘Serene’ on Dybala Despite Chelsea Links

The convoluted release clause of Paulo Dybala is back to being a topic of conversation, as foreign teams can sign him from Roma for a very low sum, provided he accepts, and Chelsea have reportedly laid eyes on him. There’s time till January 15th to activate it and acquire him for €12M, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The situation hasn’t changed since La Joya first moved to the Italian capital. The Giallorossi have never been able to revise his contract. It’s only up to the player if a foreign side pursues him, while his team can neutralize it if an Italian one wants him.

Other than convincing Dybala to stay and snub the advances from Chelsea and potentially other clubs, the only formal way for Roma to impede his departure is to hand him a new deal. It has been in the works for a few months but to no avail so far.

Director Tiago Pinto spoke on the matter to DAZN on Sunday (via Goal).

“His clause is almost a pastime. The chatter has been there since we first signed him. He’s still with us and keeps scoring. It exists and you can never say never, but I think we can stay serene on this front.”

Our Take on Roma, Dybala, and Chelsea

Crazier things have happened, but the Argentine has found his football nirvana in the Eternal City, and it’ll take the perfect situation for him to leave it. He didn’t seem too enticed by a move to the Premier League in the past.
