Paulo Dybala had a brace as Roma torched Empoli in a 7-0 romp, but he has been quiet in the other matches. His chemistry with Romelu Lukaku is a work in progress. Moreover, he’s not 100 percent due to an adductor injury that forced him to miss some time.
According to Il Messaggero (via Tuttomercatoweb), the brass has scheduled a summit with his agent Jorge Antun after the next international break. The Giallorossi wish to agree to a new contract. The Argentine is tied to them until 2025. His deal envisages tricky release clauses that come into effect every July.
Considering a predetermined option, Roma can cancel them out by handing Dybala a raise and bringing his wages to €6M. On the other hand, it wouldn’t automatically prolong his stay, which is what the club wishes.
The 29-year-old joined La Lupa on a free transfer from Juventus in 2022. He was left at the altar by Inter last summer. He recently got €3M from the Bianconeri. His lawyer Luca Ferrari threatened to sue them for “missed opportunities.” In the player’s mind, they had completely agreed to a new contract before the team had an about-face and let him go gratis, TuttoSport informs (via 90min).
Our Take on Roma and Dybala
His representatives were extra careful during the initial negotiation and have been cagey afterward too. However, it would make no sense for him to leave anytime soon.
