Juventus director Fabio Paratici said he is ‘naturally confident’ that attacker Paulo Dybala will sign a contract extension with the club.
The 26-year-old has a current deal that runs until 2022 with the Turin club, but has been the subject of some interest from Manchester United and Tottenham over the last 12 months. However, the Serie A side are confident their Argentine attacker will sign a new extension.
‘We are not worried, as we started discussing the situation with Dybala and his entourage,’ Paratici told Rai Sport.

‘So we are naturally confident. Every worker who goes to negotiate a contract wants an improvement, so that’s entirely logical.
‘This is not the time to talk about the transfer market. It’s understandable when there is no football being played, but tonight we want to fully enjoy this moment when Italian football returns.’
Dybala returned to action on Friday after three months out of action due to the coronavirus pandemic – during which the Juventus man tested positive four time for the killer virus.

Despite admitting he was ‘still not 100 per cent’ ahead of their Coppa Italia semi-final against AC Milan, Dybala played the full 90 minutes as they were held to a stalemate by a 10-man Milan.
The 26-year-old has scored 13 goals and has six assists this season across all competitions.
Attentions will now turn to the domestic league, with The Old Lady’s first match back in Serie A against Bologna on June 22. They are currently in pole position in a tight title race, with Lazio just one point behind them with 12 matches left.
