Juventus confirms that they are talking to Paulo Dybala during a NEW DEAL less than six months after they tried to sell it to Tottenham Hotspur
- Paulo Dybala seemed to be leaving Juventus last summer after being out of favor
- Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United were connected to the attacker
- But Dybala has now become an important player under manager Maurizio Sarri
- The Italian champions are now ready to extend the deal from Argentina until after 2022
The reversal of Paulo Dybala in fortunes near Juventus could be rewarded with a new contract, the Italian champions have confirmed.
After the trouble of impressing the final installment after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Argentinian was almost certain to leave during the summer amid negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur.
But after a move to North London had failed, Dybala has since made his way into Maurizio Sarri’s plans and this period has become an important player for the Bianconeri.

Dybala, whose contract runs in the Allianz Stadium in 2022, is now rewarded for his form after 11 goals in 29 games.
“He is Juventus No. 10,” sports director Fabio Paratici told DAZN on Saturday.
“It’s fundamental. We know what value he has and what he stands for. We will talk to him in the coming months.

“We already had some initial discussions before January and agreed to talk by the end of the season.”
In addition to Spurs, Dybala was also associated with Manchester United in the summer and admitted that he almost left the Italian champions, and stated: “I was almost gone when I left. That was the idea of the club, [and] I knew.’
Juve wants to win the Serie A title for the ninth consecutive season, but suffered a setback on Saturday after losing 2-1 in Hellas Verona, with Dybala coming off the bench to play in the last 30 minutes.
The result ensures that the side of Sarri remains top for the time being, but they are only three points away from Inter Milan who are in control of a match.
