Reports: Paulo Dybala’s move to Spurs is off!

Tottenham’s move for Juventus star Paulo Dybala is reported to be off.

The Champions League finalists had agreed a £64.4m deal with Juventus for the Argentine forward, as the club looked to seal a stunning late move for Dybala before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Spurs had been hopeful of securing a deal for Dybala, despite his hefty wage demands. The 25-year-old was reported to be demanding a weekly wage of around £300,000-a-week to move to North London, a figure that would see him earn significantly more than talisman Harry Kane, while his image rights are also believed to have been a sticking point in negotiations.

Dybala had also asked for time to consider a move to the Premier League, having also previously held talks with Manchester United, though the Mail are amongst a host of outlets now reporting he is expected to stay with the Italian champions.

Juventus are reported to have performed a U-turn on Dybala’s future, with the forward now set to be part of the Maurizio Sarri’s plans for the coming season.

Dybala scored for Juve in their pre-season win over third-tier Novara on Wednesday. Reported Manchester United target Mario Mandzukic, former Chelsea loanee Gonzalo Higuain and new signing Matthijs de Ligt were also on target.
