Speaking at this year’s Golden Boy award ceremony, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has stated that forward Paulo Dybala has been offered a contract extension, which would put him “among the 20 best-paid players in Europe”.
His words transcribed in Sky Italia, Agnelli, who was named best European president at the awards, also indicated that the Argentina could have a future as club captain.
“The good news is that he’s scoring again, he had a difficult period after [having] the coronavirus and had a slow restart. […] Yesterday, today and tomorrow we see Paulo as a captain of this team. He’s even has the armband at times.”
“He has received an offer which puts him among the 20 best-paid players in Europe, which is a great starting point, so his love for the club has been returned in favour, both in sentimental terms and in our recognition. He knows he has the offer, so we’ll calmly wait for a response.”
“We’re also expecting one on the pitch – his ambition is to be among the five best in the world, and we want to support him in doing that. Right now he isn’t, and that he knows.”
