Tottenham were linked with a move for Paulo Dybala.

Tottenham Hotspur’s reported interest in Paulo Dybala appears to have fallen off.

Considering his reported wage demands, it’s totally understandable, and it seems he was never a viable option for Spurs, despite the Evening Standard reporting an approach from Spurs.

Dybala’s demands were so high that Manchester United backed off The Times report.

It is claimed the Juventus forward wanted a base salary of £350,000 per week, which would by far make him Tottenham’s highest earner.

His agents were reportedly looking for £18 million to seal a transfer to United. This saw them back off, and it’s hard to fathom Tottenham making a different choice.

It’s possible Dybala would have made a concession to join a Champions League club, but the demands show he was never serious about leaving Juventus.

Tottenham were right to sound out Juventus about the possibility of signing Dybala, he’s a top talent who knocked them out of the Champions League two seasons ago.

Juventus too were open to a deal, but Spurs would have had to make major financial concessions to make it happen on top of a record breaking transfer fee.
