Tottenham will not be able to meet the financial demands of signing Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.
Dybala, whose contract with Juve expires this summer, is currently set to end his seven-year association with the club after failing to agree to fresh terms (Sky Sports).
The 28-year-old is likely to be one of the biggest names available on the transfer market with plenty of clubs in divisions across Europe surely set to fight for his signature.
Tottenham previously held a keen interest in the Argentina international and came close to signing him in 2019, but failed to get a transfer over the line (Independent).
And while Spurs are one of a host of Premier League sides expected to enter the picture for Dybala (90min), there are doubts over whether the N17-based club will be able to finance a deal.
TuttoMercatoWeb report that Spurs are indeed interested in the soon-to-be free agent, but at present are unable to meet the ‘economic demands’ behind a move.
Dybala currently earns over £200,000 per week at Juventus according to Salary Sport.
Spurs Web Opinion
With Dybala set to be a free agent, there are plenty of big fees expected to be involved aside from his high wage demands.
He will also have a pretty hefty signing-on fee which would be a big dent. But that could be worth pursuing for a player of his calibre and he would be an upgrade on the forward options currently at Spurs.
