Over the past couple of weeks, Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala (Evening Standard).

There have been contrasting reports that have emerged over the past few days with some claiming that the Argentinean international is keen on a new challenge (Tuttosport) while other reports have insisted that he is keen to stay put in Turin and fight for his place (Sky Sports via Sky in Italy).

Now a report in Sky Sports (via Sky in Italy) is suggesting that Manchester United and Juventus are close to sealing a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku.

The report claims that the two clubs have agreed on the deal in principle and all that is left is for Dybala to agree on personal terms with Manchester United.

It is revealed that the 25-year-old’s agent is currently in London for talks with the Manchester club.

Dybala is expected to have a meeting with new Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri this week before making a final decision on his future.

While this is a disappointing development for Tottenham, a deal for Dybala was always going to be unlikely given the asking price being reported. If Spurs can get Giovani Lo Celso in before the close of the window, and manage to retain Alderweireld and Rose, then it will still be a fantastic transfer window for the club.
