Serie A Champions Juventus have put a gigantic release clause in their star striker Paulo Dybala’s new contract, so as to ward-off any interest from Europe’s elite clubs.
Dybala, who joined the Turin-based club from Palermo back in 2015, has started this campaign with a bang, having already netted 13 goals in 15 matches. And now, he appears all set to sign an improved new deal with the Old Lady outfit.
According to the report from ElGol Digital (via Calciomercato), Juventus have put in an enormous €230 million release clause in the Argentine forward’s new contract. Juve view the 23-year-old as one of their vital players, and hence, have introduced the monstrous clause in order to ‘lock down’ the striker.
Dybala was linked to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, along with multiple other European elites over the summer, but with the €230 million release clause, any club who tries to raid the Bianconeri for their prized asset would have to pay a world record fee in order to obtain the highly rated forward.
The Argentina international has won two Italian titles with Juventus in his two seasons in Turin, wherein he has scored a tally of 55 goals in 109 appearances. However, the striker is yet to score on the international stage with Argentina, as currently, he has no goals to show for the 10 appearances he has made for the side.
Though Juventus may think that they have sealed their forward’s future, which for now seems to be correct, but if Dybala does fancy a move away from Italy, his admirers could eventually end up buying the 23-year-old for the massive price, thereby leaving the Italian Champions helpless – something which was evident in Neymar’s switch to PSG from Barcelona.
