- Paulo Dybala’s current deal at Juventus expires at the end of the 2021-22 season
- He had dropped down the pecking order under Andrea Pirlo’s management
- But the return of Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly set to trigger a new contract
Juventus are reportedly ‘eager’ to finalise a deal to extend Paulo Dybala’s contract following the return of boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Allegri is a huge admirer of the Argentine attacker and his timely return has seen the future of Dybala come into sharp focus.
Dybala, 27, is in the final 12 months of his deal in Turin and Calcio Mercato report that a renewal is now a key objective behind the scenes given Allegri is keen to make him central to his plans for the forthcoming season.

Dybala was named the Most Valuable Player in Serie A at the end of the 2019-20 season under Maurizio Sarri.
But bouts of Covid as well as struggling with injuries during 2020-21 hampered his game as Pirlo’s men finished fourth, scraping a Champions League spot.
Talks have been ongoing for months but there has appeared to be very little progress made towards a resolution.
