Dybala set for contract talks with Roma amid uncertainty over future

Dybala set for contract talks with Roma amid uncertainty over future

Paulo Dybala is set for contract showdown talks with AS Roma amid uncertainty surrounding his long-term future, according to Calciomercato.

Dybala’s current deal with Roma runs until 2025, but the release clauses in his contract have drawn interest from several clubs across Europe.

Clubs outside Italy can snap up the World Cup winner for €12 million, while Serie A clubs must shell out €20m for his services. Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Inter Milan are all keen.

However, the player is eager to see what the future holds in Rome. His agent Jorge Antun is already in the Italian capital and will meet with general manager Tiago Pinto next week.

Dybala arrived as a free agent last summer after leaving Juventus and has proven to be a shrewd acquisition for the Giallorossi, contributing 17 goals and eight assists in 37 appearances despite several injury problems.

He helped Jose Mourinho’s side reach the Europa League final and scored the opening goal, but the Giallorossi ultimately lost out to Sevilla on penalties.

The Europa League title would have guaranteed Roma a place in next season’s Champions League.

They now need a victory in their final Serie A fixture against relegation-threatened Spezia at Stadio Olimpico to seal a place in Europe’s second-tier club competition next term.

They are sixth in the Serie A rankings, with Juventus breathing down their necks just one point behind. Anything but victory for Roma could see them drop to the Europa Conference League spot.

Roma can annul the release clause in Dybala’s contract by raising his salary from the current €4.5m a year to €6m.

However, qualification for Europe will go a long way in convincing the player to extend his stay in Rome.
