Juventus forward Paulo Dybala is still hoping to agree a contract extension with his current club, though Inter are ready to make a move for him on a free transfer if he does not.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the 28-year-old’s priority is to renew with the Bianconeri even though it is far from certain that negotiations will go well.
Dybala’s agent is set to meet with Juventus this week for contract extension talks that could be decisive in determining the player’s future.
The Bianconeri are not ready to offer the Argentine what had been put forward during the fall, but they could decide to offer him something comparable to what he already earns, around €7 million net per season plus performance-related add-ons.
It remains to be seen whether this would be enough to convince the forward, who has also been considering Plan B options should he not agree a new deal with Juventus, but his first choice would still be to agree an extension.
