Paulo Dybala TEAMtalk

Paulo Dybala has asked for higher wages than Harry Kane after Tottenham saw a bid for the attacker accepted by Juventus, according to reports.

Dybala’s future seems to lie away from the Serie A giants, with a move to Manchester United widely speculated in recent weeks.

However, the switch appeared to have collapsed due to his wage demands, and a problem regarding image rights.

Now, Sky Sport Italia claim that Dybala could still end up in the Premier League, as Spurs have had a €75m bid accepted for the Argentine.

Dybala is reportedly warming to the idea of joining an English side as he becomes increasingly aware that Juventus do not see him as part of their future, leading to reports from the Mirror that he is willing to lower his wage demands, in hope that United will reignite their interest.

In a contrasting report, however, the Daily Mail claim that, if he is to join Spurs, he will want to earn more than star striker Harry Kane.

No player earns more than the England captain at Spurs, whose wages are £250,000 per week, but Dybala wants to eclipse that with a pay packet of at least £300,000 per week.

However, he is still tempted by the prospect of working under compatriot Mauricio Pochettino, whose club could break their transfer record for the second time this summer after the earlier arrival of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon.

Dybala could be a replacement for Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with Man Utd as a cheaper alternative, while Spurs are also reportedly in the running for Philippe Coutinho’s loan signature.
