Tottenham and Chelsea are set to attempt to persuade Paulo Dybala that he moves to London this summer, despite the fact the Juventus contract rebel insisting that Manchester City are the Premier League side that he ‘dreams of’ playing for.
Dybala has six months left on his current contract and is open to discussing a pre-contract arrangement with foreign clubs. And this week, a new report confirmed that Dybala will leave Juventus for nothing.
The Argentine star enjoyed a seven-year run with the Italian giants. He won five league championships and four Coppa italia titles. But he is now determined to seek more silverware out of Turin.
Dybala has been linked to several European heavyweights in recent months. In recent months, Dybala has been the subject of strong interest from Premier League clubs. Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United have all expressed an interest in the striker.

Manchester City has yet to respond to Dybala’s interest. Pep Guardiola’s team are keen to sign a striker this summer. However, speculation linking them with Borussia Dortmund hotshot Erling Hailand has intensified over recent weeks.
Dybala could however still find himself in England next season. The ex-Palermo ace was tantalisingly close to sealing a big-bucks £64.4million move to Spurs a couple of years ago, only for the deal to be scuppered by image rights.
His injury problems have not seemed to be a problem for Europe’s top clubs. Dybala managed to score 13 goals across 29 games despite several minor injuries that forced him to withdraw from the game.
