After months and months of speculations, Paulo Dybala's future at Juventus has been decided, and unfortunately for Bianconeri fans, it's not great news for the Italian giants.
The Argentine ace's deal ends this summer, with the Serie A giants holding contract negotiations with the former Palermo sensation today. Unfortunately, that did not end well, as confirmed by transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, with the attacker turning down the Old Lady's offer in favor of a Bosman switch.
Dybala will leave Juventus as free agent. There was full verbal agreement last October for €8m plus €2m net salary until 2026 - then Juve decided to change their proposal. #Dybala— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) March 21, 2022

According to the likes of Sky Sports, Dybala's agent held a two-hour long discussion with Juventus regarding the South American's future. A verbal agreement had been reached back in October but the club completed a full U-turn, retracting their offer before unsuccessfully attempting to renegotiate new terms.
What does this now mean for the 28-year-old's career? An Allianz Stadium exit is inevitable, with the 28-year-old likely to leave Italy altogether instead of joining a direct rival. This will come as a huge boost a handful of Premier League clubs as some English teams were keen on acquiring his services not too long ago.
Tottenham came close to landing the Argentine in 2019 while Manchester United have also been credited with interest in Dybala. While he has suffered numerous injuries lately, he remains a talented player, scoring 13 goals in 29 appearances this season. As a result, many predict interest from the Premier League will return for Paulo.
