Tottenham Hotspur may have lost to Manchester United yesterday, but their pre-season tour of Asia was not without a taste of victory.
Spurs managed to defeat Italian giants Juventus 3-2 last Sunday, courtesy of goals from Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura, and a late halfway line screamer from Harry Kane.
However, did they come face to face with the club of their new record-breaking signing on that day in Singapore? Some of the papers think they may just have.
Tottenham have been linked with a move for Juventus playmaker/forward, Paulo Dybala, who is said to be rated £80m in this transfer window (Standard).
The Argentine would join his fellow countrymen Erik Lamela, Juan Foyth, and Paulo Gazzaniga if he joined Spurs, as well as the gaffer, Mauricio Pochettino.
However, Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri does not appear to be planning for life after Paulo with his comments this week.
Sarri spoke to the media about the ways in which he could deploy Dybala in the future, implying that the Argentine will remain at Juve.
He said (Football London): “I think Dybala can play as a false nine quite comfortably.
“We can also set up the attack slightly differently, with the 4-3-1-2 and Dybala playing on the right of a front two.
“We’ll try to give continuity to the good things we did in the second half [against Tottenham] in Singapore.”
