Tottenham loiter for Juventus star with doomed Turin contract talks scheduled this week

Paulo Dybala, Federico Chiesa in Champions League action for Juventus

Tottenham are one of the “possibilities” for Paulo Dybala this summer, with Juventus officials and the player’s agent set to meet for contract renewal talks this week.

That is the latest news coming from Turin, via Calciomercato. The Italian outlet say that Juve are preparing another renewal offer. But with the proposed offer said to be less than the last deal Dybala rejected, the Argentina international looks set to move on.

Dybala’s current deal expires in June 2022 and he has held talks over an extension. In fact in October, Fabrizio Romano claimed a renewal until 2025 was close.

However, as yet no agreement has been reached regarding the 28-year-old attacker.

As per Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, the Bianconeri will propose a “lower offer” compared to the previous one.

That previous offer was reported to be €8m net, plus bonuses. But with the relationship between player and club “freezing” over the winter it looks likely that a lower offer will be doomed to failure.


As for Dybala’s suitors, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are all said to be monitoring the situation.

While Spurs have long been linked with the Juventus player after almost signing him in the summer of 2019.

Dybala image rights

Financial problems scuppered the deal with issues surrounding his image rights leading to the deal being cancelled, as per Football.london.

 

Spanish publication Sport reported last month the Premier League outfit have already spoken with him and have made the best approach of any side so far.

And the arrival of Fabio Paratici at Spurs has sent the rumour mill into overdrive. Of course the Tottenham director will have worked on renewals for Dybala at Juve in the past.

Paratici will be well connected with the representatives of Dybala and the report claims Spurs are keen.

A lot will depend on the meeting between Dybala’s entourage and Juventus this week, with Spurs waiting for the green light.

Moving to Spurs would see the 32-cap international end his seven-year spell at the Allianz Stadium.
