Paulo Dybala has extended his contract at Juventus until 2022, just a couple of days after his exhibition display against Barcelona in this week's Champions League quarter final. Juve issued a press release to announce the Argentine's new arrangement with the club. Dybala adds two years onto his previous contract which was due to expire in 2020: “Giuseppe Marotta and the player's agent Pieropaolo Triulzi have sealed the revision of Dybala's contract with Juventus which has been amplified until 30 June 2022”, the Italian club said, adding. "Juventus is stepping into the future and they will be doing so joined by La Joya for the next four years".
Dybala becomes Juventus' joint highest earner
Juventus have made no comment on the economic terms of Dybala's new contract but according to reporters in the Italian press, the Argentinean will take home a 7 million euro salary - the same as the squad's highest earner, Gonzalo Higuaín.
Dybala linked to Real Madrid
Following his goals and brilliant performance against Barça on Tuesday, Dybala's notoriety has increased considerably. One of the principal clubs who had taken an interest in the 23-year-old was Real Madrid but with this new contract, any hopes of the player landing in the Bernabéu look increasingly remote.
