Roma to Begin Contract Negotiation with Star Striker

Paulo Dybala started hitting his stride and carrying Roma on his back before a thigh strain forced him to miss multiple matches. His recovery is proceeding well, and he should be fit for the World Cup. Considering the woes of the other forwards, he remains their top scorer.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Giallorossi agreed to insert a €20M release clause to convince him to join last summer. They are now looking to remove it to fend off any potential transfer market rumors.

The two parties are in talks, and an extension could come relatively soon in 2023. Both Roma and Dybala have taken ample precautions with the current deal, but the marriage has worked out wonderfully. They are ready to discuss a more standard one.

The club is willing to add an extra year to the pact, pushing the expiration date to 2026, and reward La Joya with a pay bump. The Argentina de facto took a pay cut compared to what he could have earned at Juventus and Inter, which ultimately pulled their proposals for different reasons.

Our Take on Roma Opening Talks with Dybala

Both have found their match, as the striker wouldn’t have such a predominant role in most top clubs, while the Giallorossi are unlikely to lure aces of similar caliber. It’s hard to imagine him leaving anytime soon despite a relatively low exit clause, as he would have to sign off on the move, but yanking it would quash any doubt. The matter could drag on, though, as his camp is notoriously tough to deal with.
