Paulo Dybala drops a huge hint he will sign a new deal at Juventus

‘If you come to Turin in the next five years, you will find me’: Paulo Dybala drops a HUGE hint he will sign a new deal at Juventus, with the Serie A side offering the Argentine forward a new £7m-a-year contract as talks continue

  • Paulo Dybala is holding talks with Juventus over a new deal at the Turin outfit 
  • His contract ends at the end of the season but he is keen to extend his stay 
  • Dybala promised he would still be in the City in the next five years 
  • Juventus are hoping to agree a new five-year deal with Dybala worth £7m a year 

Paulo Dybala has dropped the strongest hint he will agree a new contract with Juventus after claiming he would still be in Turin in the next five years.

The Argentine’s contract will expire at the end of the current season but there has been a desire from both parties to extend the deal, with director Pavel Nedved telling the media the club were ‘counting’ on the player. 

Talks have been ongoing between the club and Dybala’s representatives since September but are yet to be finalised, although the 28-year-old suggested there might finally be a breakthrough after speaking with tennis star Alexander Zverev.

Paulo Dybala hinted he will sign a new deal at Juventus, saying he would be there in five years

Zverev – who won the ATP Tour finals in Turin by beating Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev this weekend – asked Dybala whether he would still be plying his trade in Turin in the near future.  

‘Maybe, I hope so. If you come to Turin in the next five years you will find me,’ he said, via Goal. 

After scoring in Juventus’ 3-0 win over Malmo in September, Dybala said he was close to re-signing and said he had a ‘great desire’ to commit his future, adding he was ‘very confident’ that an agreement could be reached. 

The Argentine, whose deal ends next summer, has become a key member of the squad 

‘We hope to close soon for the renewal,’ he said. ‘There is everyone’s desire to complete the negotiations, they know that on my part there is a great desire to stay in Turin. I know that the management also wants to extend my contract and we have started talking again.

‘I hope that everything will be over soon and good news can arrive for everyone, I am very confident.’

Nedved echoed those words, saying the club were accelerating talks and that Dybala was a key member of the squad.  

He has flirted with an exit in recent years but admitted he has a ‘strong desire’ to stay put

‘We have put Dybala at the centre of our project. We are counting on the player and will try to get the contract signed as soon as possible.’

Dybala looked like he might leave Juventus in recent years – holding talks with both Manchester United and Tottenham in 2018 – but turned things around to become an important member of the team – scoring 17 goals in 2019-20 and being crowed as Serie A MVP.

He has played 256 times for Juve, scoring 106 goals since his £26million move from Palermo in 2015. Dybala has won Serie A five times, the Coppa Italia four times and also played in the 2016-17 Champions League final, starting in the 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid.
