The Daily Mail have revealed that rumoured Tottenham target, Paulo Dybala, is afraid that the knee ligament injury he picked up in January is more serious than the initial diagnosis.

Spurs famously came close to signing Dybala in 2019 and the North Londoners are reportedly ready to reignite their interest in the Juventus forward this summer.

The Daily Star even claimed two weeks ago that the Italian giants had offered the 27-year-old to Tottenham but Jose Mourinho’s men were unsure as to whether to make a move for the forward.

The Daily Mail has now shed some light on why that might be the case as they report that Dybala’s recovery from his knee ligament injury is proving to be complicated.

The former Palermo man suffered the injury in January and all tests had ruled out the need for surgery. However, the Argentina international continues to feel discomfort in his ligament and is worried that it might be a sign of a serious problem.

The report goes on to add that Juve could cash-in on Dybala this summer as the club need to sell either him or Cristiano Ronaldo in order to balance their books.

Spurs Web Opinion

As we have seen with the likes of Fernando Torres previously and even Danny Rose more recently, players sometimes are not able to hit their previous heights when they come back from a long-term injury lay off. So, anyone who signs Dybala would be taking a bit of a gamble and I do not expect Spurs to do that given the precarious situation of our finances.
