Paulo Dybala to Tottenham : Tottenham agree €70 million transfer fee for Dybala with Juventus, as negotiations for personal terms begin.
Paulo Dybala was thought to make a move away from Juventus this summer, as his time at the Turin based club was reportedly over, and he was linked with various clubs, including in the Premier league.
However, a shocking report by Romeo Agresti from the Goal has claimed that Tottenham Hotspurs have agreed to pay €70 million for Dybala, which is convincing enough for Juventus.
Further, the Argentine International and Spurs are entering into the negotiations to meet the personal terms, in order to complete the transfer before the end of the English transfer window.
It comes as a shock to Manchester United, who were also interested in hiring the services of Dybala, but was later snubbed by the 25-year-old forward, which ended the probability of Romelu Lukaku and Dybala swap deal.
On the other hand, sudden entry of Tottenham in this transfer saga has been surprising, since the North London club hardly ever engages itself in a costly purchase, and there were no concrete reports of this transfer before.
It seems, with the departure of Christian Eriksen is near, Tottenham have the cash to bolster their squad ahead of the next season. Moreover, cash infusion they gained from reaching last season’s Champions League final.
The versatile Dybala has the ability to play a free role ahead, and will probably provide them the creativity behind the striker. With this, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are angling to make more additions ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline, as rumours of Philippe Coutinho joining Spurs is also being speculated.
Spurs are keen on the Brazilian, with Eriksen about to enter the final year of his contract and a his move to another club is also likely ahead.
