Dybala set to prolong his future with Juventus:
Securing the long-term future of Paulo Dybala is an excellent business from Juventus. The forward has showcased his talent in Serie A over the past few campaigns and losing a player of his calibre for free – given the player has only one year remaining in his current contract – would have been a disappointing outcome for the Bianconeri hierarchy.
The Argentine international was previously linked with a move away from the Allianz Stadium and was very close to leaving the club back in 2019. However, the forward desperately wanted to remain at the club.
Meanwhile, after a disappointing start to the season under Massimiliano Allegri. Juventus have bounced back brilliantly as they have managed to remain unbeaten in their last six games.
