Paulo Dybala ‘to sign new long-term Juventus deal’ months after move to Tottenham fell through

Paulo Dybala ‘to sign new long-term Juventus deal’ just months after his move to Tottenham fell through on deadline day over wage demands

  • Paulo Dybala was close to joining Tottenham in the summer transfer window
  • The 26-year-old’s move fell through on deadline day due to his contract terms
  • He has scored nine goals for Juventus this season, who are second in Serie A 

Paulo Dybala is reportedly on the brink of signing a new lucrative long-term deal with Juventus, less than six months after he almost moved to the Premier League.

Tottenham were in negotiations with Dybala all the way down to deadline day but, as Sportsmail exclusively revealed at the time, a stunning move was cancelled at the 11th hour as Spurs failed to meet his wage demands of £300,000 a week.

Now, according to Goal, Dybala is set to sign new terms with the Italian giants.

It was considered a major blow to the then Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was looking to bolster his squad and build on last season’s run to the Champions League final.

The club had agreed a £69m transfer fee with the Italian giants but Dybala’s wage terms would have exceeded Harry Kane’s £200,000-a-week contract. 

Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham in November and replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Argentina international Dybala has scored nine times in 23 games for Juve this season under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri.

Juve are second in Serie A and trail Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan on goal difference.
