Despite speculation linking Paulo Dybala with a move to Barcelona, reports in Italy suggest Juventus want to extend the 22-year-old’s stay at the club.
Dybala is currently under contract at Juventus Stadium until 2020 and the club want to extend his deal for an extra season.
The Bianconeri are unsurprisingly pleased with the progress Dybala has made since coming to Turin last year, although he only scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb.
our matches was the longest Dybala went without a goal for Juventus in Serie A last season, and Tuesday’s breakthrough could be the signal he needed to finally resume that prolific form in front of goal.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Mediaset Premium (h/t Football Italia), Dybala opened up on what his first goal of the campaign meant to him and how he’s approached his game in what’s been a “tough” patch:
It’s tough when you don’t score, but I found the net tonight and it went well.
I thought that I was doing ok anyway, so long as the team was winning and I didn’t score, it was fine.
I [will] continue playing the same way and I just do what the Coach says.
