Juventus are “well advanced” in contract talks with Paulo Dybala, according to chief football officer Fabio Paratici.

Dybala, 26, is out of contract in 2022, but has been linked with a renewal in Turin after enjoying an impressive season.

Paratici confirmed talks with Dybala were in progress and a fair way down the track, with the playmaker set to stay at Juve.

“We often speak with his entourage and we are moving forward, despite all the difficulties related to the commitments and the movement due to the games that are played every three days,” he told Sky Sport.

“Even in this period, we are talking quite frequently and we are well advanced.”

Juve clinched a ninth successive Serie A title on Sunday thanks to a 2-0 victory over Sampdoria.

Paratici was full of praise for coach Maurizio Sarri, who secured the league crown in his first season in charge.

“Sarri has made an incredible climb in his career and he’s in the place he deserves to be,” he said.

“He is certainly one of the protagonists of our season.”

Dybala came off against Sampdoria due to a suspected thigh injury in a worry ahead of the Champions League resuming next month.
