According to Spanish publication AS, Paulo Dybala’s representatives have ruled out a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Dybala has confirmed that he will be leaving Juventus when his contract with the Serie A giants runs out in the summer.
On Wednesday, several different sources reported that Tottenham had pushed ahead with a move for Dybala.
Portuguese journalist Pedro Almeida stated that Fabio Paratici had spoken to the Argentine regarding a move to North London, and Spurs’ interest in the 28-year-old was also backed up on social media by Latin American football reporter Christian Martin.
However, this was subsequently dismissed by Fabrizio Romano, who insisted that Spurs had not held any talks with Dybala’s representatives over a transfer.
Spanish publication AS states that the Juve star’s entourage have decided against a move to Tottenham despite Antonio Conte’s men showing interest in the player.
They add that Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, AS Roma and Manchester United are the other clubs who have their eyes on the former Palermo man.

I would be extremely surprised if Spurs pushed ahead with a move for Dybala, given that he is at his most effective when playing off the right – a position which Dejan Kulusevski has seemingly made his own.
While Conte will likely want to bring in a forward to offer competition to the Swede, my gut feeling is that he will want to sign someone like Lautaro Martinez, who is effective across the front three.
