In a huge blow to Spurs fans, Paulo Dybala’s protracted move
from Juventus to Tottenham is now off.
The BBC’s David Ornstein
broke the news, reporting that Juventus ultimately decided against selling the 25-year-old
This is just another twist in the summer tale of Dybala,
with The Old Lady previously happy to sell a player
who they deemed to be surplus to requirements at The Juventus Stadium – to the extent
that the club even offered the former Palermo man to Manchester United as part
of their attempts to sign Romelu Lukaku from the Red Devils.
Only this morning it was reported that a £65
million deal had been agreed to bring Dybala to a Spurs side looking to push
on and challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League crown.
In some better news for Spurs fans, fellow Argentinian
Giovani lo Celso has recently
arrived in London as Tottenham look to finalise a £55 million deal for the
Real Betis playmaker.
Additionally, a £25 million move for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon
is expected to be completed by the time the transfer window closes at 5pm today
– while a £30
million move for Nice right-back Youcef Atal has also been mooted.
