Paulo Dybala in action for Juventus
Monday, October 17, 2016
The talented striker has been on both Premier League clubs’ radars for some time now but they failed to land him from Palermo when he instead joined Juve in 2015.
He has since scored 22 goals in 41 Serie A appearances which has led to fresh links with both United and Chelsea while Barcelona are also keeping close tabs on him.
But, in a bid to ward off interest from abroad, the 22-year-old is set to pen a bumper new deal in Turin with an announcement said to be imminent.
Speaking after Juve’s 2-1 win over Udinese, during which Dybala scored both the home side’s goals, director general Beppe Marotta revealed that the striker, along with another Chelsea target Leonardo Bonucci, deserves a pay rise.
He said: “The renewals of Bonucci and Dybala? They are already well paid players, but it is right to give them recognition. We are working to adapt their contract also in order to maintain balance in the dressing room.”
