It took Paulo Dybala 4 minutes to return from the top of the darkest. 87 days after his last match in the Juventus jersey, the Argentine star returned to the green to bring down Napoli and, incidentally, save coach Andrea Pirlo’s position. In the first ball he touched, he was reunited with the honeys of the goal. “It was a liberation for him in these three months “, commented Andrea Pirlo.
Dybala replaced Álvaro Morata in the 69th minute and In ’73 he made a personal play sensation, adorned with a house brand donut, to give Vecchia Signora (2-0) a break when he needed it most. It was not being an easy year for the Argentine who was in the dry dock since January 10 (his last game was against Sassuolo) for a problem in the medial collateral ligament of the left knee. Almost three months out that they have barely allowed the attacker to play 17 games this season.
“When you have a player like Dybala you try to make him play as much as possible, unfortunately we never had him this year. It is an added value for any team and it is also for Juventus, “Pirlo explained after Dybala’s return. A goal that serves as a lifeline for a Dybala, who after 87 days injured and highly questioned in the Vecchia environment Signora for the famous dinner at McKennie’s house, starting to see the light again, this Juventus, in depression, needs his shiny left leg.
His future, an unknown
“He has a one-year contract, there is time, hopefully we can stay with him.” Dybala ends his contract with those of Turin on June 30, 2022 and he has not yet renewed. At 27 years old, speculation about his figure away from Serie A has skyrocketed. In the past Manchester United pushed hard for their services. There is also talk of an exchange with PSG for Icardi. The truth is that Juventus is tied hand and foot due to its complicated financial situation to face a tough negotiation with the Argentine. Even so, Dybala has three possible scenarios left: accept a renewal offer from Juve (conditional on your current financial resources); finish the contract in 2022 and go free O ask to leave this summer in a transfer to another team. The South American has the upper hand.
