Following constant speculation over the future of Juventus talisman Paulo Dybala, club CEO Giuseppe Marotta has blasted such claims once and for all, by insisting that the star forward will not be sold at any cost.
Dubbed as the next Lionel Messi, the Argentinian has done more than enough to deserve that title.
Dybala has taken Italian football by storm ever since his debut back in 2015, and has started off the new campaign by scoring an incredible 10 goals.
However, despite frequent reports hinting at the forward’s move away from Turin, Marotta has strongly disagreed to any rumour of that sort, and is confident about their prized asset’s commitment to the Serie A club.
“The lad is priceless, because we are not a selling club,” the Italian told La Stampa. “I always repeat that a player has his future in his hands and Paulo just said he wants to tie himself to our club for life.
“Translated, that means we will make another big financial sacrifice to keep him. We will soon lock him down to a new contract – it’s what he asked us for.”
The Juve CEO may have just disappointed many powerhouses who were looking to lure Dybala away from Italy despite his recent contract extension, which will see him stay put at the Juventus Stadium till 2022.
The player himself has expressed his loyalty to the club as well, and as per Marotta, Dybala has requested to even stay at the club for life. The 23-year-old seems to be heading nowhere anytime soon, as the club and the young forward seem satisfied with each other.
