Roma Need to Step Up in Talks to Modify Dybala Contract

Paulo Dybala had one of his best performances of the season against Udinese, scoring his first goal since mid-September. He missed a few games with a knee injury and needed time round into shape afterward. His camp and Roma have been in talks to extend his contract, but there’s no agreement yet.

Per Calciomercato, La Joya wants to stay, as he reiterated in his post-game remarks on Sunday as well. However, his representatives expect the Giallorossi to improve the figures of their latest proposal.

Dybala was promised that his €4.5M wages, with €1.5M add-ons, would rise at some point before the end of his initial three-year contract. In contrast, Roma want to remove the threat presented by his low release clause for foreign clubs.

Since it’s €12M, their only guarantee is the wish of the player. The Argentine is expected to continue drawing interest from Saudi Arabia, and he’ll be the one to decide his future. He has three goals and four assists in 2023/2024.

Our Take on Roma and Dybala

His deal is a mess, but fortunately for them, he hasn’t shown any hint of malcontent; if anything, the opposite has been true, considering the attachment he has expressed so far. But dealing with his entourage is famously tricky. The management better not play with fire and come to terms as soon as possible. There’s a lot of fat they can trim in their wages bill to give him a raise.
