English Premier League outfit Chelsea were linked with the signature of Italian Serie A outfit Juventus striker Paulo Dybala with the plans of making a move for him in the coming summer transfer window but that might not happen again with the latest revelation by Juventus chief Fabio Paratici.

Fabio Paraciti revealed that the Old Lady are already in talks with the Argentina international forward for a new contract to stop him from leaving the club any time soon.

Paulo Dybala has about 18 months left on his current contract with Juventus which makes the likes of Chelsea and Man United to indicate interest in his service.

However, the club has revealed that Paulo Dybala is part of the plans for the future as talks over a new deal have already been initiated, hinting that the 26-year-old wants to stay at the club.

“We’re in talks to extend Paulo Dybala’s contract. He wants to stay and we want to keep him – he’s part of our future” Fabio told Sky Italia.

He further revealed that the discussion over a new contract would have been concluded but for the coronavirus pandemic as they were locked in the hotel for two weeks and not allowed to meet anyone.

The Juventus forward scored 17 goals in 46 games across all competitions for Juventus last season in addition to the 14 assists he provided.

With Frank Lampard struggling to get his strikers on the score sheet, Paulo Dybala is tipped to be the man to solve the problem at Stamford Bridge.

The West London outfit are not sure of having Olivier Giroud for a longer period, hence will need a new striker that will replace him.
Man United who are also suitors will soon part ways with Odion Ighalo and have Edison Cavani for just two years will be in need of an experienced striker like Paulo Dybala.
