Juventus chief officer Fabio Paratici has revealed the club remain in talks with Dybala and are optimistic about agreeing a contract renewal.

Juventus are still discussing with Paulo Dybala regarding a new contract.

The Argentine will see his current contract at the Turin club expire in the summer of 2022.

Dybala came close to leaving Juve last summer. There was strong interest from Premier League duo Tottenham and Manchester United.

The 26-year-old has shrugged off that uncertainty and has been one of the most important players for Sarri this term.

Dybala has already been dubbed by some as the future leader of Juventus. And Fabio Paratici insists the club have no intentions of letting their prized asset go.

“We’ve been talking to his agent for a while now, he’s a very important player for us,” Paratici said as quoted by Football-Italia.

“We made a very big investment for Dybala. It was a gamble by the club but one we always believed in.”

The sporting director then spoke of the ‘faith’ his club had in the Argentine.

“We even gave him our No 10 shirt. We’ve always had faith in Paulo.”

Considering his recent displays for the club, a renewal for Dybala should be one of their priorities ahead of the summer.
