Paulo Dybala is a new Roma player. The Argentine player left Juventus on a free transfer and will earn 4.2 million euros net plus bonus with Roma. The commissions amount to 4 million euros or 10% of the contract, which is in line with the club's policy, to be paid out in segments over the length of the contract.
Dybala signed a three-year contract, without an option for a fourth year. If he leaves before the third year of the contract, Roma won't pay that part of the commission.
In the contract that was signed by Dybala, there is also a buyout clause worth an estimated 20 million euros. It is the same buyout clause that his agents thought to be indispensible during the negotiations. This means that it was included in negotiations with Inter and Napoli. A buyout clause for different teams does not exist, as the buyout clause applies equally to all teams. By accepting a lower salary offered by Roma, the relationship between Dybala and Roma becomes somewhat of a "partnership". In this case, a percentage of the buyout clause will be for Dybala if it invoked by another club.
It is important to note that Roma has various recourses to resolve issues in their favour and to block transfers to other clubs by a predetermined parameters. For example, if another club wants to invoke the buyout clause, Roma has the possibility to block it by raising Dybala's salary or extending the length of his contract.
