“Was never gonna happen” – Some Spurs fans react to gloomy transfer update

Over the past few weeks, multiple reports have claimed that Tottenham hold a serious interest in Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. Italian publication La Stampa even claimed that Tottenham have already made an opening bid for the 25-year-old worth £45 million, which was rejected by Juventus.

It is suggested that the Italian giants are looking for a fee in the region of £80m in order to part ways with the Argentinian international (Sky Sports). The forward is expected to return to pre-season training with Juventus next week (The Sun).

However, just as Spurs fans were getting excited about the possibility of signing Dybala, Sky Sports have now put a damper on the excitement by suggesting that a deal is “unlikely” at this stage.

The report claims that Spurs need to sell Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose to be able to fund a move for the Juventus man and now that Eriksen looks like he is set to stay, it is doubtful if Spurs will have the funds to pursue a move for the Argentine.

Some Spurs fans on social media suggested that the news was predictable and they never bought into the hype over the last few days.

Spurs Web Opinion

It seems extremely unlikely that the club will be willing to shell out big money for both Giovani Lo Celso and Paulo Dybala after already shattering their transfer record this summer for Tanguy Ndombele. It is a shame though as we at Spurs Web believe Dybala has the talent to double his valuation in a year if he gets regular game time at Spurs.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Sky Sports have no idea what Spurs can afford, or who Daniel Levy is planning to buy, so why pay any attention to them? Spurs HAVE the money, if they decide to spend it. Money is NOT the issue, only company policy and corporate decision, neither of which component in Levy’s transfer decision making process Sky know anything about. Just because things may have been a certain way in the past, doesn’t mean they will still be that way in the future. Ergo the Dybala deal is by no means dead.

  2. agreed, sky sports know little and pretend they know it all, tottenham have just agreed a 360 million shirt sponsonship deal, then we have premier league money, then we have champions league money, then we have transfers out money, and we still havent had our stadium sponsored yet, but it will be, this is a lot of money, and levy wants to get the top players for the new stadium, we have only spent about 60 million so far, we will spend lots more, lo celso, and yes dybala, which will cost about 140 million + 60 =200, its a lot compared to our buying before i agree, but you must forget the past, we are a bigger club now, TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR has woken from its slumber.
    glenn said it last year, when one of hi co pundits, sad but spurs havent got any money, and glenn looked at him and said, no you are wrong spurs have plenty of money, because he actually speaks to spurs people and knows the real facts, unlike sky sports news, i know who i believe, THE GENIUS SUPERSTAR HODDLE, if only he would could find another like him.

  3. I really don’t understand the negativity of our fans. For years we have struggled financially (ever since we nearly went bust) but since Levy came in, his dream was to make Spurs a giant. It’s took many years with plenty of hold ups, but now we are nearly ready to strike. It might not be this season or even next to build the squad with quality, but the days are ending when each rumour sounds like a pipedream. We might not get Dybala, but if we really want him, I think Levy WILL make a serious effort. Why the hell build a stadium and training centre that’s the envy of the football world, if Spurs are not serious. We are not going to get everyone we are linked with, but lets stop seeing every rumour as pie-in-sky, and start believing we are going on an upward journey. COYS
