Tottenham’s £64.5M bid for Paulo Dybala accepted by Juventus

2019 Aug 7

Italian giants Juventus have accepted Tottenham's £64.5M (€70 million/$78m) offer for the Argentine striker Paulo Dybala. La Joya has already talked on the phone to manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentina international is yet to agree personal terms with Tottenham Hotspur over the switch as the move to north London grows closer.

Premier League rivals Manchester United were keen to sign Paulo Dybala. The Red Devils ended their pursuit of the 25-year-old forward due to his reluctance to join them and his agent's demands. The Argentine was reportedly asking for around £350,000-a-week, which United were not willing to pay the Juventus star.

Since his arrival to Turin from Palermo in 2015, Paulo Dybala helped the Bianconeri win the Serie A title in all four of his seasons with the club, becoming one of Juve's top players.

The Argentine striker netted 10 goals in all competitions for the Old Lady in 2018-19, down from 26 the previous season and 19 the campaign before that.

Spurs manager has reportedly called Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho to try and convince the Brazilian to move to the club on loan.

Tottenham Hotspur start their Premier League campaign with a home match against Aston Villa on Saturday.
