'No possibility': Agent claims Conte doesn't want 'complete' player at Tottenham next season
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Paulo Dybala for quite a while now.
In March, Corriere dello Sport claimed that Tottenham were still interested in the Juventus ace.
Spurs nearly landed Dybala in 2019, but the deal fell through, according to Sky Sports.
Dybala will almost certainly leave on a free transfer this summer. So it’s no surprise to see links between Tottenham and the Argentine.
However, Italian agent Massimo Brambati has suggested to TMW Radio that Antonio Conte no longer wants him.
Brambati suggested that the Tottenham boss will be mindful of Dybala’s lack of regular starts and injury issues over the past two years.
“For the race to Dybala there is a grand prix in which Inter currently runs alone,” Brambati told TMW Radio.
“Speaking of Tottenham, if Conte were to remain there, [then] would be no possibility for his transfer.
“The last two years weigh on the player’s evaluation, characterised by injuries and continuous stops. In these situations, the pitch is the only judge.
“Since the announcement of the non-renewal, I expected a surge in performance from the player, which instead did not happen.
“I don’t think he will be without a team. But at the moment no one is tearing his hair out to take Dybala, much less at the figures requested by the Argentine himself.”
Could Tottenham have lost interest in Dybala?
The Corriere dello Sport report from March claimed Conte and Fabio Paratici rated Dybala highly.
However, Fabrizio Romano’s latest video update on Dybala didn’t even mention a Premier League club.
Romano, speaking on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE this week, claimed Inter, Borussia Dortmund and some clubs from Spain and France were eyeing Dybala.
So maybe it is true that Spurs have lost interest. But with the transfer window on the horizon, there could well be many twists and turns.
