Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has squashed reports saying that Paulo Dybala has a release clause in his contract.
The Argentinian became a superstar while in Juventus. However, reports in the Spanish media are indicating that there is a buyout clause mainly for Barcelona amounting to €120m if they wish to bid.
Marotta dismissed the claims over his interview with Premium Sport and said that they do not require a release clause since they will just let go of a player who wants to leave.
“Release clause in Dybala’s contract? Release clauses are more popular in Spain than in Italy,” Marotta reportedly remarked. “We acquired [Gonzalo] Higuain and [Miralem] Pjanic last season because of this.
“I am against this, and no one at Juve have any clauses. If a player wants to leave, then we won’t keep him. It’s that simple.”
