Five reasons why Juventus not renewing Dybala is a bad idea

The divorce between Paulo Dybala and Juventus is still fresh on the mind of many Juventini this week and the community is at a divide whether the move was right to let him go or not. Here are five reasons why Juventus not renewing Dybala is a bad idea:

 

No transfer fee was recovered

Even though Dybala has been plagued by injuries this season, his output has been outstanding. When he takes the field, the Argentine has been Juventus’ standout performer boasting 19 goals in 29 appearances this season. When the Argentine was on the verge of departing Juventus in the summer of 2019 after a poor season, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur came calling. Since then, Dybala has won Serie A MVP and has consistently demonstrated his unique talent in 2021/22, despite an injury-plagued campaign under Andrea Pirlo. There’s no doubt he’d have cost a lot if a potential bidder had been obliged to pay a fee this summer. As a result, Juve is losing a lot of money by allowing him to walk for free. However, the club is ready to absorb the short-term blow rather than hand the player his desired long-term contract, which may have hampered the Bianconeri financially over a longer time if his injury issues continued.

Brand Power

Despite his inconsistencies in recent seasons, Dybala maintains a sizable fan base. He is one of the most followed footballers on Instagram, with 46 million followers. He is also one of the highest-paid football players, owing to his endorsement deals with several companies. Juventus has already lost Ronaldo, and losing Dybala will undoubtedly have an impact on the club’s brand.

Spending a lot of money on a replacement

Replacing Dybala will be a difficult task, and Juventus could go about it in a variety of ways. They’ve been linked with Zaniolo, Raspadori, Salah, and Antony to replace La Joya and form a dynamic front three alongside Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa. However, to compensate for the loss of Dybala’s creative output, they could invest heavily in midfield. Paul Pogba and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are two names that have piqued the club’s interest in this regard, but the former’s salary will be exorbitant, and luring the latter away from Lazio this summer will cost Juve a lot of money. It’s safe to say that replacing Dybala will not be cheap.

 

Difficult to replicate the creative output

Allegri’s cautious emphasis on shape and structure out of possession hampers Juve’s attack. Signs of a more dynamic and progressive Juventus have been fleeting this season, with the manager completely reliant on individual brilliance on the counter-attack and in the final third. Dybala is one of the few Bianconeri players capable of delivering the necessary attacking moments, and he’s especially useful against deep-lying defenses. Vlahovic and Chiesa, Juve’s other attacking stars, thrive in transition. In Serie A, no Juventus player averages more shot-creating actions per 90 minutes than the Argentine (4.73), and only Chiesa averages more goal-creating actions per 90 minutes. Finding a man capable of balancing a possible front three with Vlahovic (a multi-faceted focal point) and Chiesa (runner) while emulating Dybala’s creative production will be difficult for the Juventus management.

 

Legendary figure

Juventini had regarded that 21-year-old hotshot from Palermo like one of their own since his arrival in Piedmont in 2015. They witnessed him develop from the start, as most were enamored with his distinct aesthetic and the ease with which he entertained the crowds. And, while the tiny magician may not have reached the lofty heights that were previously expected of him, Dybala will surely be remembered as a modern-day Juventus great. Before leaving in the summer, the 28-year-old will have the opportunity to add to his 283 overall appearances, 113 goals, and amazing collection of silverware. Juventus as an institution has been based on hard work, victory, and grinta. But, throughout their history, they’ve always had a romanticist who added a touch of beauty to the Old Lady’s inherent roughness. Michel Platini in the 1980s, Alessandro Del Piero on either side of the Millennium, and Dybala now.
