Juventus want to sell Paulo Dybala before the end of the European transfer window despite his failed transfer to Tottenham, according to reports in Italy.
It was a dramatic deadline day for Spurs as the club secured deals for Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis and Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham. There was, however, a hint of disappointment as a move for Paulo Dybala failed to materialise.
On Wednesday, Tottenham reportedly agreed a fee with Juventus for Dybala, and Thursday delivered update after update with the Argentinian edging towards a transfer to north London. In the end, though, it wasn’t to be.
Reports suggested a combination of complications with the player’s image rights and Juventus’ unwillingness to let him go without bringing in a replacement were to blame for the collapse of the move.
To make things worse for Spurs, it now seems Dybala could move elsewhere in the next few weeks. Italian outlet Calcio Mercato – as relayed by Football Italia – claims Juventus still want to sell the 25-year-old, who apparently has a number of suitors.
Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan are said to be the three clubs who could end up signing Dybala, which will come as a huge disappointment to Tottenham – the Londoners may have harboured hopes of reviving a deal in January or next summer.
