As per a report from ElGolDigital, Italian giants Juventus have decided on the release clause that will be inserted into the new contract of star man Paulo Dybala.
Dybala, a 10-time capped Argentinian international, has been on the books of Juventus since joining the club from Palermo in 2015.
The gifted South American, who generally plays in the no.10 role for the Bianconeri, has since developed into one of world football’s most talented youngsters, with La Joya’s combination of splendid technique, incredible balance and hammer of a left foot having made him near-indispensable for Juve.
He has started off the current campaign in scintillating fashion, having racked up 11 goals and 2 assists in 11 league outings (9 starts).
Signal of intent
This excellent form has led Juve to ready a huge new contract extension for Dybala, with CEO Beppe Marotta having even hinted at a lifetime deal for the Old Lady’s crown jewel.
And, as per the aforementioned report from ElGolDigital, the Bianconeri plan to insert a massive buyout clause of 230 million Euro in Dybala’s deal.
This would make the little Argentine the most expensive player in history, if another club were to activate the clause.
Of the clubs linked with a move for Dybala in the past, La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid were thought to hold the most legitimate interest, though Manchester United have since been named as a possible destination, should the 23-year-old choose to depart Turin at some stage in the future.
