Serie A: Juventus tie Dybala down until 2022

Having signed a new contract to commit his future to the Italian champions until 2022, the Argentine wants to become a symbol for the Serie A club

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has signed a new five-year contract, the club confirmed on Thursday.

The 23-year-old will earn a reported €7million per season on a deal that will run until June 30, 2022.

Dybala, who scored twice in the 3-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Barcelona on Tuesday, had been linked with a possible move to the Spanish champions or Real Madrid in recent weeks

Following the announcement of hs extension, Dybala tweeted: "Together much longer, with this shirt."

The deal comes at a good time for Juventus after Dybala proved his class when he scored a brace to help Juventus to a 3-0 win over Barcelona in the first-leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.

According to the Sun, United, Barcelona and Real were keen on signing the Argentine forward, who has scored 16 goals in all competitions for Juventus this season.

But after his latest contract it is unlikely that the soon-to-be-crowned Italian champions will allow him to leave during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in world football and is guaranteed to attract interest from top clubs across Europe.

Juventus will hold the advantage in any negotiations with interested clubs and are likely to demand a much higher fee than they received from the Red Devils when they signed Paul Pogba last summer.
