After the transfer contract failure with Tottenham and Man Utd, Juventus is reportedly to sell Paulo Dybala to PSG with £11 million a year. As one of the best players in Juventus, it is not a surprise if top clubs such as PSG, Man Utd, and Tottenham put him on their radars. The Mail reported PSG is preparing a huge offer to persuade him to move to Paris. So, this is possible if the Argentinian will be offered £11.1 million per year with a five-year deal. Further rumor told PSG sporting director Leonardo has recently contacted Dybala personally saying Dybala can be the ideal replacement for Neymar.
On the other hand, Juventus wants Dybala to be sold around £80, but they are desperate to find a good replacement before the transfer deadline. The time is too quick which Italian transfer will be closed on August 31, and the French transfer deadlines will be shut down on August 31.
Back to the deal’s collapse between Juventus and Tottenham, there is no clear reason behind it. Tottenham Hotspur offered €70 million for convincing Dybala to switch. However, media and public claim the reason behind this failure is Dybala’s image rights. The Spanish newspaper, Marca explains as club buying a new player, they will also take over the image rights. Now, the problem is Dybala belongs to Malta-based Star Image Company.
In more detail explanation, Marca told the Argentinian player is now having a problem with the Star Image Company due to withdrawing contract in 2017 in bad terms.
So, how is the image rights important? We already know if this is not a new territory anymore which can affect the individual as a professional football player. It means it is very crucial to leverage their image rather than the money from the club they are playing for. This culture has been growing that the players can sell themselves through their image. It is pretty easy to earn huge money as a star. Taxjournal.com last year reported that more than 180 players who were playing in English Premier League had companies which might have received income from image rights benefits.
