AS Roma’s new star Paulo Dybala doesn’t know what the future holds for him as his relatively low release clause could be triggered in the summer
Roma’s World Cup winning Paulo Dybala has no clue about his future at Roma while the Giallarossi prepare to meat RB Salzburg in the Europa League.
Will Dybala be scooped up by EPL clubs?!
The Argentine winger joined AS Roma on a free transfer from Juventus and hasn’t disappointed since. He has scored 11 goals and provided 7 assists in 21 appearances for Roma all season. This has been a massive help for Mourinho’s men to move into the fourth place in Serie A.
However, he is unsure about his future at Roma. Paulo Dybala’s contract at Roma contains a €12m (£10.7m) release clause for teams outside the Serie A.
“As I always said I want to lift a trophy with Roma.“
This means that the likes of Manchester United could easily scoop up Dybala in the summer if they can agree a deal with the player.
“When it comes to my release clause, as I said before it’s something between my agent and the club,” Dybala told reporters. “I can’t know what’s going to happen at the end of the year.”
While Dybala doesn’t want to get distracted too much about his future. He wishes that Mourinho stays in his position at Roma.
“I don’t know what’s in my future so you think I have any clue on the manager’s future? You need to ask him,” Dybala said.
“I can say that I would like to be coached by him because for me he is one of the best managers in the world. I want to win something with him.
“Right now I only think about tomorrow’s game. We have to do well because there are still plenty of games to play. As I always said I want to lift a trophy with Roma.
“We have two competitions mathematically to play but realistically maybe just this one to win something. We want to win it and let Roma playing in Champions League next season.”
Roma boss Mourinho has talked about their chances of succeeding in the Europa League. He doubts that his team will lift another European trophy this season as they did last year.
“When I talked about sharks coming from the Champions League I referred to teams built to win Champions League but have ended up playing in Europa League,” the Portuguese said.
“It’s clear that for a team with ambitions to win the Champions League when they find themselves in this competition, they have a lot of pressure on their shoulders.
“Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus… these teams were not built to win the Europa League but to win the Champions League.
“Obviously, all the pressure is on them. Just like it was last season in the Conference League. Where we felt the pressure to be one of the most successful teams in the competition. Now they are in this position. Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus, they are the favourites.”
