In Summary

  • Tottenham have agreed a fee with Juventus for Paulo Dybala worth Sh8 billion although personal terms are yet to be agreed
  • Manchester United were keen to sign Dybala, but ended their pursuit of the Argentine forward due to his hesitance over the move and his agent's demands

Tottenham have agreed a fee with Juventus for Paulo Dybala worth Sh8 billion although personal terms are yet to be agreed.

It is understood Dybala’s image rights will be an obstacle in negotiations for the 25-year-old forward.

Last month Tottenham made an enquiry for Dybala, but it is understood any move for him would hinge on the futures of Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose.

Manchester United were keen to sign Dybala, but ended their pursuit of the Argentine forward due to his hesitance over the move and his agent’s demands.

There was a deal in place which would have taken Romelu Lukaku to Juventus with Dybala heading to Old Trafford.

The transfer was hinging on Dybala’s preference and his agreement of personal terms with the Premier League side.

However, United are now considering a late move for Tottenham midfielder Eriksen before Thursday’s deadline.
