Juventus Vice President Pavel Nedved revealed that the financial factor played a role in not renewing the contract of Argentine striker Paulo Dybala, which expires on June 30.
When asked why negotiations to renew Dybala’s contract were suspended, Nedved told Mediaset: It is difficult to answer this question specifically. We evaluated the player in all respects, what he presents to us on and off the field. Of course his demands (Dybala) were very high, which is right because he is a great player, but we didn’t feel ready to do that so it makes sense for each of us to go our own way.
Dybala, 28, joined Juventus in 2015 and won the league title five times and the award for best player in the 2020 season.
Reports in the Italian press suggested that Dybala would join Inter, the league champion last season, who crowned the Italian Cup by beating Juventus 4-2 after the extension on Wednesday.
