Tottenham wanted to sign Dybala and Juventus wanted to sell him, but the move failed to finalize.
Juventus will now look to offload unwanted forward Paulo Dybala to Paris Saint-Germain in an attempt to balance their finances, reports in Italy suggest.
Sources close to the Juventus dressing room claim Dybala is “furious” at the situation he has been placed in by the Italian champions.
Tottenham began negotiating for Dybala soon after breaking their club-record transfer fee to sign Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for an initial €60 million. They initially faced competition from Manchester United, who insisted on an exchange with Romelu Lukaku, only for the complicated swap deal to quickly break down.
Now according to Sky Italia, late into the negotiation, intermediaries from Paris Saint-Germain sought to reassure Juventus that the French champions would be very interested in signing Dybala in the event of Neymar’s possible sale.
With the Premier League transfer market now closed, Real Madrid or Barcelona are the only viable destinations now for the PSG ace. And if the two clubs end up in a bidding war for him, it will be Neymar himself who benefits from those circumstances, as a deal will be done faster and with better terms for him.
The Serie A side, meanwhile, still have a lot of time to work on the sale of Dybala, with other top league’s transfer window closing on 2 September.
