With the transfer window now closed for Premier League clubs to recruit any new players until January 1st, some Spurs fans will certainly be regretting the fact that we did not sign Paulo Dybala.
Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for the Juventus striker before the window closed (Tuttosport).
Dybala was also the subject of a failed move to Manchester United with the Old Trafford outfit said to have pulled out of talks after learning of the forward’s wage demands (BBC).
His agent Jorge Antun has now rubbished reports that salary expectations and agent fee demands were the reason why a move to England did not materialise.
Speaking to TuttoSport, Antun said: “I did speak to the English club, but the stories about the commission were not true. There were simply issues between the two clubs.”
Tottenham certainly missed a brilliant opportunity to recruit a world class striker which has already proven to be the wrong decision.
Harry Kane has had limited success in his opening three Premier League matches this season and was largely anonymous against Manchester City and Newcastle United.
While Kane’s ability is unquestionable, we miss the luxury of another forward who is capable of helping to free the England captain of the goalscoring burden.
