Tottenham handed potential huge Dybala boost after Juventus reportedly refused to meet the contract
According to Football Italia, Serie A giants Juventus have refused to meet the contract demands of Argentine attacking midfielder Paulo Dybala, and a summer exit is becoming increasingly likely, informs the Sportlense.com.
The news will come as a huge boost to Tottenham Hotspur who tried to land him last January and during the last summer transfer window.
According to the Daily Star, Spurs will be offered the chance to sign Dybala this summer, but it remains to be seen whether the North Londoners will be keen to meet their £40 million asking price.
Juventus have offered the Argentina international a take-it-or-leave-it offer worth €10m per season, including performance-related bonuses, and they are now ready to cash in on him in the coming months with his contract expiring at the end of next season.
Chelsea, Barcelona and Paris St-Germain will also be offered the chance to sign the 27-year-old, and more suitors will definitely emerge at the end of the season.
Spurs will definitely be improving their squad by landing a quality attacker like Dybala, and he could be the perfect player to replace Gareth Bale.
The Wales international is looking to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan spell, and the Argentine could be the best option to fill the void.
Given that Dybala would be a free agent next June, Spurs could be willing to wait until he becomes a free agent before moving, but that could prove unwise.
They need to be playing in the Champions League to have a chance of attracting the Juve star, though, and it will be interesting to see whether they can finish in the top-four after the next nine league games.
The Argentine has struggled with fitness issues this term, featuring in just 16 games across the Serie A and Champions League, but he remains a world-class player when fully fit, and Spurs need to land such a player if they are serious about winning silverware.
