Just over six months ago, it was reported by Sky Sports that Juventus had accepted a bid from Tottenham Hotspur for their exciting Argentine Paulo Dybala.

The bid was said to be worth around £64.4m, as the Champions League Finalists Spurs looked to bring in some extra firepower under fellow Argentine Mauricio Pochettino.

Unfortunately, the deal never went through and the summer window slammed shut, with the Independent claiming that third-party image rights had caused a roadblock in the deal.

However, despite the club being open to selling him half a year ago, Dybala has been back at his best for the Old Lady this season across all competitions.

Dybala has bagged 11 goals and 11 assists for Juventus this season, including three goals and two assists in six Champions League matches (TransferMarkt).

It looks as if things will turn full circle in the near future, as Juventus have now confirmed that they are in talks with Dybala over a new contract in Italy.

Juve sporting director, Fabio Paratici, told DAZN this month (relayed by Football Italia and the Daily Mirror): “He’s the Juventus No.10.

“He is fundamental. We know what value he has and what he represents.

“In the coming months, we will talk to him.

“We have already had some initial discussions before January and agreed to talk nearer to the end of the season.”
