Paulo Dybala is reportedly ready to snub Premier League interest by signing a new contract with Roma this summer.
The 29-year-old Argentinian striker shone in his first season in the Italian capital, scoring 18 goals and providing eight assists in a total of 38 appearances. Dybala’s impressive campaign has seen him attract the attention of Chelsea, who recently contacted his agent to begin exploring a possible move. As detailed by Calciomercato.com, Dybala is keen to stay with Roma and his agent Jorge Antun is in the Italian capital, waiting to meet with director Tiago Pinto to discuss his client’s contract. The 2022 World Cup winner has a low release clause in his contract – 12 million euros for foreign clubs and 20 million euros for Italian teams. The idea is to offer Dybala a new contract with a higher base salary, removing the release clause in the process. He could be offered up to 6 million euros net per season, with a bonus of around 2 million euros.
