Paulo Dybala has signed a contract extension with Juventus until 2022 ending talk of a move to Barcelona.
The 23-year-old Argentina international, who scored twice to help down Barca this week, has hit 16 goals for the club this season.
He has been linked with a move to the Man City and the Camp Nou to replace Neymar, who has been mentioned as a target once again for Manchester United.
A report from Mundo Deportivo claimed Dybala had “decided to leave Juventus at the end of the season” and “La Joya” was intent on playing in Primera Liga with the Catalan giants.
Now though with Dybala staying put in Turin the chances of Barca allowing Neymar to move on without a replacement seem remote.
“I’ve always just wanted to succeed in everything that I do and I know that Juventus is the perfect place to be if you want to win things,” Dybala said.
The forward joined Juve for £23million from Palermo on a five-year deal in June 2015 and won the double in his first season.
And Juve has announced they will pay Palermo an extra £6.8million over the next four years as a result of a “performance bonus”.
Sky Italia have reported that the new deal does not contain a release clause.
