Paulo Dybala: “Juve still owes me money, about three million euros”

Argentine Paulo Dybalacurrent Roma player, assured in his statement before Italian Financial Guard within the so-called “Prismatic investigation” against Juventushis former team that he still owes him about three million euros.

Dybalaannounced on February 21, as reported by the Italian media this Friday.

I don’t remember when I was paid my last salary, but I know very well that Juventus still owe me money. I don’t know the exact amount, but it will be around 3 million net.

Studies of the Turin complex related to salary maneuvers part of the 2020 financial year when, due to the socio-economic situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Juve reached an agreement with some players in which they forfeited their salary for four monthsso the club’s budget didn’t suffer as much in the midst of the pandemic.

However, months later, prosecutors opened an investigation into this agreement, as it was not a salary waiver, as originally reported by the Italian club, but rather deferment of payment for three out of four months by private agreement, something illegalwhich meant saving the Vecchia Signora budget.

The Argentine striker added in his statements.

When we agreed on a salary deferral, we knew that if I extended my contract with Juventus, the salary arrears would be paid as an addition to subsequent salaries, but if I left instead, they would have to pay me again. instant.

He later stated.

I know that in April 2023 Juventus will have the last chance to pay those 3 million more or less. Otherwise, my lawyer will send requests in writing, although I hope I do not go so far, I want my money back, but without filing a lawsuit, in order to avoid problems for me and Juventus.

A case similar to the one also known as “secret letter” from Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldoin which Juventus once hid a document revealing a private agreement between the Turin club and the Portuguese star and confirming a conspiracy with salary maneuvers.

The differences in the case of Dybala with that of Ronaldo lies in the agreed amount, almost twenty million euros was the Portuguese star’s agreement and the signing of the pact, since the Argentine, unlike the Portuguese, did sign the agreement.

The Argentine could be fined for a month without a game, as Article 31 of the Italian Code of Sports Justice prohibits clubs from agreeing to or paying compensation that violates federal rules, but also prohibits players from agreeing to their payment, the receipt of which will result in a suspension of at least one month.
