Juventus stance on Dybala’s expiring contract amid Manchester United links

Paulo Dybala looks destined to leave Juventus once his contract expires this summer after Juventus director Maurizio Arrivabene confirmed an extension is unlikely.

The comments were cited by respected journalist Fabrizio Romano following transfer links between the Argentina international and Manchester United.

“We won’t extend Paulo Dybala’s contract,” Arrivabene said. “We’re not gonna do any other proposal – the decision has been made.”

In other words, Juventus have given up trying to persuade Dybala to stay in Turin.

Romano previously stated that Dybala “will leave Juventus as a free agent”, which would give United a boost in their reported attempts to sign him, and at 28 it’s possible that he is reaching the prime of his career.

United have been short of goals this season, while Dybala has managed 19 goal contributions in 29 games across all competitions, so it makes sense that the club would monitor his ongoing situation.

Moreover, with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial both likely to leave Old Trafford this summer, the availability of the Serie A hitman could prove tempting to the next manager.

That being said, it wouldn’t surprise me if United went for a younger player in attack.

Benfica’s Darwin Nunez looks like one of the best alternatives to Erling Haaland out there.

Let us know in the comments if you think Dybala would be a good signing for United? He will be demanding a big deal since it will be a free transfer.
