Paulo Dybala demands £280,000-a-week to join Tottenham, Arsenal or Manchester United
Tottenham have turned down the opportunity to sign Argentine star Paulo Dybala due to his £280,000-a-week wage demands.
After announcing that he will not be extending his contract at Juventus, the 28-year-old is now available on a free transfer.
Spurs and Manchester United were both interested in signing Dybala in 2019, with both clubs pursuing a deal until the final hours of the summer transfer window.
The former Palermo midfielder ended up staying at Juventus, but he’s now open to a move to England, where Antonio Conte is a known admirer.
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur, who had the most interest in Dybala among English clubs, turned down the opportunity to sign him due to his wage demands.
Dybala would defy Spurs’ wage structure by becoming the club’s highest-paid player, surpassing Harry Kane.
Arsenal and Manchester United are both uninterested in the player, despite their admiration for his abilities.
Due to the Gunners’ failure to finish in the top four, their transfer plans have had to be scaled back.
Inter Milan is now the frontrunner in the race to sign Dybala, though they are only willing to pay him around £260,000 per week before taxes.
