Tottenham Hotspur had a bid accepted for Juventus star, Paulo Dybala, yesterday, with the fee said to be £64.4m (Sky Sports).
This would be a new club record fee, if the deal goes ahead, overtaking Tanguy Ndombele who signed earlier this summer.
However, despite agreeing the transfer fee, Spurs are in a race against time to get the personal terms over the line before the deadline tomorrow.
All incoming Premier League deals must be completed by 5 pm on Thursday to be valid, so Tottenham now have well under 24 hours to get this done.
Due to these time constraints, Il Messaggero reported earlier today that the deal was unlikely to be completed in time.
However, the Independent now imply that all aspects of said deal are completed, apart from the image rights aspect.
Dybala’s image rights are owned by a third party, Star Image Company, and may cost millions more to acquire, as well as time to sort out al the legal aspects.
Can Spurs get this one over the line in time?
