Tottenham Hotspur were reportedly offered the chance to sign the Juventus ace.
According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, Tottenham have rejected the chance to sign Juventus star Paulo Dybala this summer.
The Daily Mail claimed yesterday that the Argentine is available for £70 million this summer.
And whilst that represents a drastic reduction on his previous £105 million valuation (Tuttosport), Spurs are making the right decision in not pursuing the 25-year-old.
Dybala was far from his best for Juve last season, racking up just 10 goals and five assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.
And Tottenham should surely expected more than that from someone who would reportedly cost them £70 million.
The Argentine can play up front or as a number 10.
Harry Kane is clearly the north London outfit’s number one striker, so Dybala would not be starting ahead of the England international.
And if Spurs keep Christian Eriksen, and sign Giovani Lo Celso, they would have more than enough cover in the attacking department.
Tottenham seem to be doing the exact business that was required this summer.
And Dybala would have been an expensive risk for them.
He has shown real signs of decline over the past one or two years, and Mauricio Pochettino would be better served in exploring cheaper options who would offer far greater value for money.
Spurs need more competition for Kane, that cannot be argued, but for £70 million, they are making the right call in avoiding Dybala.
