Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta is not worried by inserting a huge buyout clause in Paulo Dybala’s contract.Marotta was of the opinion that Dybala will not trend in the footsteps of Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, who has a €700 million release clause in his contract. Marotta does not believe that a huge buyout clause will fend off interest from suitors as in the case of Neymar, his huge release clause of €222 million did not prevent Paris Saint-Germain to secure his signature during the summer transfer window.
But Marotta, when asked about the future of the 24-year-old former Palermo star, feels the Scudetto holders would not benefit from following a similar strategy to Barcelona."I am against the [release] clauses, because when a player wants to leave, he does everything to achieve that goal and breaks that fundamental trust [necessary so that] the relationship can continue," he told Mediaset Premium.Dybala has enjoyed a superb 2017-18 so far, scoring 12 goals and providing two assists in just 14 Serie A games.Juventus was in hot form this weekend as they thrashed Crotone 3-0 at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
