Tottenham Hotspur fans have received a boost in their pursuit of Paulo Dybala today, as a Juventus expert of a journalist has disputed claims that a deal is dead.
The BBC reported this morning that Juventus had completely cut the deal off, with Gianluca Di Marzio later adding that Juventus were not willing to sell as they do not have a replacement, despite personal talks progressing well with Spurs.
Juventus had initially agreed a £64.4m fee with Tottenham for the Argentine attacker, who would link up with his fellow countryman, Pochettino, at Spurs (Sky Sports).
However, Italian football writer and author of ‘Juventus: A History in Black and White’ has now updated fans on the situation.
He claims that a loan deal is still possible, which would give Spurs more time to sort out the image rights problem. He also states that the idea of Juve needing a replacement is rubbish, as Dybala has already been replaced in the team and the Italian window is open until September 2.
The idea that #Juventus “need a replacement” for Dybala is off on two levels. First, he was already replaced in the team (which is loaded in attack, hence the willingness to sell) & second, the Serie A window is open until Sept 2
