The Daily Mail claimed this week that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino rejected the chance to swap Christian Eriksen for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala late in the transfer window.

Spurs were linked heavily with Dybala in the final few days of the transfer window but a deal failed to materialize due to complications with the player’s image rights (The Independent).

The Mail has now revealed that the Serie A giants enquired about the possibility of swapping Eriksen for Dybala but Pochettino blocked the move since he was hopeful the 27-year-old will signing a new contract with the club.

However, the Dane, who is into the final year of his contract with the club, has now reportedly made it clear to the Tottenham hierarchy that he is not interested in signing a new deal despite the club offering him terms worth £200,000 a week (ESPN).

This means that Spurs now face the prospect of losing the Dane for nothing next summer.

Some Spurs fans on social media were quite dismissive of the report and insisted that the story had too many holes to be true:

While it is impossible to tell if there is any truth to this report, Pochettino’s comments before and after the game against Manchester City about European clubs unsettling players seems to indicate that something has changed regarding Eriksen’s situation since the close of the transfer window in England.
