The Argentine forward has only made 11 appearances for Juventus this summer as a result of an injury-riddled season which has reduced his goal tally to just two in Serie A this campaign (via Transfermarkt).
He said: “I want to say that Dybala is leaving Juventus. I want to say that. It is in my personal feeling. This is not news, but because the news is no agreement on the new contract, still negotiating by like two years and no agreement. But my personal feeling is that Dybala is leaving Juventus this summer.
“I think that they will try to find a solution for Dybala; keep an eye on swap deals. Keep an eye on potential bids this summer. I don’t know if it would be Premier League – Tottenham fans are always asking.
“I don’t know what happens because at the moment there is nothing. I don’t know if [there is interest from the] Premier League or other countries, but for sure Dybala will be an opportunity on the market also because his contract is expiring in one year and that’s why Juventus, in my opinion, can’t ask [for] like €80m/€90m like two years ago.”
“But Dybala has always been a fantastic player. He needs to be the star and in my opinion, he was destroyed when Juventus decided to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Should Spurs sign Dybala?
TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…
Well, Romano seems pretty convinced the Argentine will leave Juventus this summer. Although the journalist does not believe he the Italian side will be able to ask for the same figure they did two years ago, reports are still suggesting he could fetch up to €45m – which is still a significant sum of money given the financial situation in football.
One question which some Spurs fans may ask in response to Romano’s report on Dybala is could the suggested valuation of the Argentine be spent better elsewhere? Tottenham are reportedly looking to address their defensive problems this summer and have already been linked with RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer.
