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.
Dybala Juventus exit claims alert Real Madrid and Barcelona
Barcelona moved to increased Lionel Messi’s buyout clause to €700m in his new deal signed by the forward on Saturday.
Hosts of Europe elite clubs have been craving for the signature of the Dybala, the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid have been linked with the Juventus midfielder.
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.
