World Cup winner Paulo Dybala can be brought to the Premier League for just £10.5m this summer, it has emerged, as the Argentine looks to find his feet in top-level football again.
Long-linked with both Manchester United and Tottenham during his time at Juventus, Dybala joined Roma last summer on a free transfer, and has enjoyed an excellent campaign to date as he looks to put himself back on the map.
The 29-year-old has registered 11 goals and 7 assists in Serie A this season across 26 appearances, as well as four goals in nine Europa League outings as they look to bring silverware back to the Italian capital this season.
However, he may not be in Rome for long.
As it stands, he is under contract until 2025, but there are two release clauses written into the Argentine’s contract that could be activated this summer.
The first is for Italian clubs, and sits at 20m euros, though in the unlikely event that it is triggered Roma can ‘cancel’ it with a salary rise, Fabrizio Romano reports.
Perhaps the one more likely to be activated, however, is for non-Serie A clubs.
Interested parties will be able to snag Dybala for just £10m (12m euros) should they wish to, which could bring the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United, both targetting talent on a budget this summer, back to the negotiating table.
Though currently managerless, Tottenham are almost certain to need attacking reinforcements this summer with Harry Kane not expected to sign a new contract and likely to depart.
They have long been linked with a move for the Argentine, and could finally make the move happen as they look to find a way back into the Champions League.
