Juventus’ potential acquisition of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba could see them having to sell a high profile player beforehand due to their reported financial limitations.

Tottenham could potentially get another shot at signing Juventus forward Paulo Dybala in the summer as reports suggest that the Serie A giants may have to consider selling a big-name player to raise funds to land the Frenchman.

Dybala was said to have come close to completing a move to Spurs last summer and reportedly had even recorded a goodbye video with Juve as he was expecting the move to go through (La Gazzetta dello Sport).

However, the deal collapsed on transfer deadline day due to complications regarding the 26-year-old’s image rights (the Independent).

Dybala hasn’t looked back since the failed transfer and has been on fire for the Italian giants this season, having managed twelve goals and eleven assists in all competitions so far (transfermarkt).

Despite Dybala’s improved run of form, a report in the Daily Mail suggests that Spurs could be handed another chance of landing him next summer.

They claim Juventus aren’t in great shape financially and could sell a big name, like they tried to with the former Palermo last summer, in order to raise the required funds to buy Pogba in the summer.

The Express believe that the need for Juve to sell up in order to raise funds could be a boost for Tottenham.

Juventus might need to sell in order to buy given the state of their finances but I don’t believe that they will get rid of Dybala. He has been in spectacular form this season and they have other bit-part players like Rabiot who they can also sell to raise the required amount.
