Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly opted against battling Europe’s elite for Juventus star Paulo Dybala this summer – and Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter to the news.
Dybala, 25, is renowned as one of the best attackers in European football, and is certainly up there as one of the best false nines in the business. However, he managed just 10 goals in 42 games last term, after Cristiano Ronaldo joined.
It is believed that Dybala is considering his options at Juventus this summer, with his relationship with former manager Massimilliano Allegri somewhat delicate – as per Italian outlet CalcioMercato.
Despite the change in boss, Dybala’s future remains in doubt. Tottenham, meanwhile, boast Harry Kane up front but have sold Vincent Janssen to Mexican side Monterrey while releasing Fernando Llorente. Dybala, though, is considered too good to be Kane’s back up.
Dybala is also likely to cost north of £100million as he is considered one of the best European attackers out there, and it appears Spurs have rejected the chance to lure him to north London this summer.
Manchester City have done the same, while Bayern Munich, PSG and Manchester United are said to be interested in the former Palermo star. Spurs fans have reacted to the news their club have rejected the chance to sign Dybala.
The reason for that is perhaps because CalcioMercato have recently claimed that he is valued at £120million.
Forget Lo Celso and just do it! Dybala would be amazing addition to Spurs!
