Tottenham Hotspur target Paulo Dybala isn’t enjoying a great season at Juventus so far.
Tottenham Hotspur failed to land Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala this summer, and his situation in Turin still seems a little uneasy over a month on.
The Independent reported last month that Spurs were chasing a late deal for Dybala before the English transfer deadline, but image rights meant Tottenham couldn’t get it done.
Dybala was described as ‘furious’ at being left in the lurch by Juve, and it seems that his reintegration under new Juve boss Maurizio Sarri isn’t exactly going perfectly either.
The 25-year-old has played just 14 minutes of Serie A action this season, and was an unused substitute in their 0-0 draw with Fiorentina on Saturday afternoon.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Dybala’s brother Gustavo took to Twitter behind his locked account to slate boss Sarri, but the message was picked up by the media.
Turin’s main newspaper Tuttosport noted that Gustavo tweeted ‘the violin cannot play beautiful music if it’s missing a string’, referring to Juventus struggling to a 0-0 draw with Fiorentina whilst Dybala sat on the sidelines.
That creates more unrest surrounding Dybala, and Football.London recently suggested that Spurs are likely to make a new move for the former Palermo man in January.
With Dybala ‘furious’, his brother annoyed and Sarri not giving him any playing time, this one looks to be heading for an ugly divorce – and Spurs may well hope to benefit from the fallout.
