Premier League bound? Juventus forward Paulo Dybala set for free agent exit


Another top player is set for a move away on a free this summer, as it has been confirmed that Paulo Dybala will not be renewing his Juventus contract at the end of the current campaign, and will instead seek football away from Turin.

Dybala had been a mainstay of the Juve side since his move from Palermo in 2015, racking up 283 appearances in his 7 seasons at the club, and helping them to 6 Serie A titles in the process.

However, with the big-money addition of Dusan Vlahovic in January, it seems as though the Argentine's contract talks were put on a back-burner, and now have broken done completely.

Fabrizio Romano reports that while there was a verbal agreement in place months ago, Juventus decided to change what they were willing to offer the 28-year-old, who turned it down as a result.

Where will Dybala go?

Dybala has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Tottenham and Manchester United both having previously shown interest in the cultured left-footed forward. However, whether they will reignite said interest in the summer remains to be seen, with Manchester United undergoing a transformative period under an incoming new manager.

Tottenham, meanwhile, could find themselves in pole position, with Dybala reportedly preferring a move abroad rather than to Italian rivals Inter Milan, who have also been credited with an interest.

Having seemingly missed out on Franck Kessie, who appears Barcelona bound this summer, will Dybala prove to be the sort of player that could convince Conte to remain at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium beyond this summer?
