Paulo Dybala, Juventus, 2021/22

Paulo Dybala will leave Juventus when his contract expires this summer, putting an end to a seven-year stint in Turin.

The Argentine has won 12 trophies with the Old Lady, but will depart as a free agent when the transfer window opens on 1 July.

FootballTransfers revealed in April that a stay in Italy is what Dybala prefers and that Inter were the most likely club to sign him.

Inter remain keen on the forward, with Lautaro Martinez's future at the club still unknown following interest from Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League. A driving force behind Inter's push for a second consecutive Scudetto, Lautaro has impressed without his trusted partner Romelu Lukaku, who departed back to Chelsea last summer.

He could, however, be joined by Dybala, with the pair able to form an Argentine duo up front for Inter if a move for Dybala does go through.

Juventus are resigned to losing their star man, who remains one of the most highly-coveted players in Italy, despite injury problems causing stoppages in recent years.

Will Dybala join Roma?

La Repubblica have reported they believe that Dybala will instead reject a move to Inter in favour of joining Roma.

Jose Mourinho's side have impressed this season and will have the chance to win the Europa Conference League when they face Feyenoord in the final in May, but won't be playing Champions League football next year.

Could Dybala choose Roma instead of Inter?

Could Dybala choose Roma instead of Inter?

The top four in Serie A has already been decided, and despite looking likely to challenge Juventus for fourth at one stage, Roma have fallen away and will most likely be playing in the Europa League next year.

Tammy Abraham and Lorenzo Pellegrini have been shining lights in Roma's side this season, with 23 league goals between them, but nobody else has registered more than five Serie A goals this campaign. Another forward is an area Mourinho will want to improve, and Dybala could be that man.

However, it would be strange for him to turn down the opportunity to play Champions League football to join Mourinho at Roma.
