After months of speculation and a performance against Barcelona on Tuesday that only served to increase the furore surrounding him, Paulo Dybala finally put pen to paper on a contract extension with Italian champions Juventus until 2022.
The 23-year-old illustrated his talent beyond any doubt with two wonderful goals in the Champions League to give Juve a commanding lead over Barcelona and is now set to remain in Turin for the foreseeable future.
Dybala joined Juve in a €32 million deal from Palermo and since then has scored 39 goals and made 16 assists, more than any other player at the club during this time.
“I’ve always just wanted to succeed in everything that I do and I know that Juventus is the perfect place to be if you want to win things,” Dybala said.

“I love to succeed in everything I do, that is why I’m at Juventus.”
And succeed he has. Dybala completed a league and cup double in his first season with the Bianconeri and is still on course for a historic treble this term, having scored 16 goals.
In signing his extension, Juventus also announced that Palermo would be receiving an additional €8 million as an ‘add-on’ taking the total of that transfer to a still cheap €40 million.
