Last year, Paulo Dybala was awarded as the best player in Serie A. He closed the season with 17 goals and 14 assists, and was decisive in achieving the long-suffering scudetto that saved Sarri’s season.
The great goal he scored against Napoli as soon as he entered the field after three months, confirmed two things. The first is that he is a predestined, the second is that, cwith him, the Old lady would have returned to fight for the title, something that now is impossible.
In this season, the ex of the Palermo adds hardly 880 minutes, less than ten games. He suffered injuries to his thigh, knee, a urogenital infection and he closed his black journey with dinner at McKennie’s house that postponed his return to the green for a couple of days, which was triumphant.
The decisive goal with Napoli reminded everyone of his importance, but it was not enough for Juve to change their plans: they want to sell him. Pavel Nedved, in his last interview, made it clear that the club will take advantage of “the opportunities offered by the market” with him. And ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, on its cover this morning, reiterated that the forward is for sale. The bianconeriHowever, they have a problem: Dybala does not want to leave.
The Argentine is happy in Turin, and when he scored the decisive goal on Wednesday he made a gesture that few noticed. During the celebration, he touched the shield of the Old lady. The rumors and criticism of these months, when he could not even jump into the field, hurt him. And, obviously, he was not excited that Juve has not called him again to renew, despite the fact that he only has one year left on his contract.
Love for Juve
His agent, Jorge Antun, spent more than a month in Italy in September, but received no calls. The board’s plan is to transfer the Argentine to the next market, but Dybala will not accept just any offer. Showed it two years ago, when Juve had closed its sale to Manchester United and he said no, he was staying. And it ended up being decisive.
Without an interesting proposal from a giant in Europe, which is satisfactory economically and sportingly, Dybala does not plan to leave, once again. If it were up to him, he would stay in Turin. And then, if the club does not want to renew him, it will respect his contract until 2022, choosing his next adventure as a free agent. For the Juve boxes, already in trouble, it would be a very hard blow.
