Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta is not a big fan of release clauses in players’ contracts with the clubs. He rubbishes any news surrounding Juventus’ star Paulo Dybala release clause in his agreement.
Calcimercato.com reports Serie A giants Juventus will not insert a buyout clause in Dybala contract, if he does sign a new contract in the near future. The 23-year-old Argentine star has contract with the Old Lady of Turin till 2022 and it doesn’t bother Juve CEO that he hasn’t put a release clause in his agreement.
Giueseppe Marotta confirms that a possible new deal will not have a release clause, playing down the reports of it having a clause in the region of €230 million. Marotta told Premium Sport in an interview, “Release clause in Dybala’s contract? Release clauses are more popular in Spain than in Italy. We acquired Higuain and Pjanic last season because of this. I am against this and no one at Juve have any clauses.”
He added, “If a player wants to leave then we won’t keep him, it’s that simple. Yes Barcelona received €222 million for Nyman but people forget that the Blaugranas were not prepared for this and they lost an amazing player. I think that they lost more than €200 million in damages.”
With added pressure from Europe’s top clubs demand for Dybala, Juventus is considering to offer La Joya (The Jewel) new contract with better perks and salary, but they’re not open to add release clause in Argentine’s contract.
