Why Paulo Dybala’s future at Juventus remains uncertain

The decision of the contract will wait

Reports of Dybala and whether or not he will sign a new contract keep changing day by day and it looks like his future is going to remain undecided for now. Romano understands there was a three-month verbal agreement with Dybala to extend his current contract with Juventus, but there was a change of heart leaving the player in a vacuum.

Manchester United and Tottenham among clubs on red alert

Dybala’s current deal in Turin runs out at the end of the 2021/22 Serie A season, meaning he is already free to enter into pre-contract negotiations with non-Italy-based clubs. News that the deal has yet to be signed will prompt clubs to move in and Manchester United and Tottenham are both long-time admirers of the striker. The 28-year-old is not keen on waiting for Juventus to make up his mind and would now be ready to listen to offers from abroad.

Dybala has struggled with a muscle injury this season but still managed 20 appearances in all competitions with nine goals to his name.

The curse of the verbal agreement

Dybala may well have fallen victim to the verbal deal in the same way as Harry Kane whose desired move to Manchester City in the summer transfer window never happened with Kane unhappy his move was blocked after he believed he had a verbal agreement to leave with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

It remains to be seen whether Dybala sees his contract at Juventus or if he moves before the end of January.
