Juventus plan to sell four players in order to extend Dybala's deal

La Gazzetta dello Sport say that Dybala and Juventus want to extend his stay but that they will have to adjust their squad and finances to achieve a contract renewal.

Paulo Dybala's contract renewal is one of Juventus' priorities. He is the second most important player on the team after Cristiano Ronaldo. The Argentine's contract expires in 2022 and the two parties involved are currently negotiating an extension.

The player knows he has options. He was close to Manchester United last season and he will ask for a big increase in his wages to renew for the long haul. The 26-year-old is currently making €7.5 million but wants double that amount. The hope is that his agent can land a contract for his client somewhere between €11 and €12 million. That would make him the second highest-paid player at the club.
