JUST IN!! Tottenham Agree €70m Dybala Fee with Juventus
Juventus have accepted Tottenham’s €70 million (£65m/$78m) bid for striker Paulo Dybala, according to Sky in Italy.
The player is now set for talks with Spurs over contract terms as a move to the Premier League grows closer.
The 25-year-old has developed into one of Juve’s top players since his 2015 arrival from Palermo, helping the club to the Serie A title in all four of his seasons with the Bianconeri.
Personal terms are yet to be agreed between Spurs and Dybala’s camp.
It is understood Dybala’s image rights will be an obstacle in negotiations for the 25-year-old forward.
Manchester United were keen to sign Dybala, but ended their pursuit of the Argentine forward due to his hesitance over the move and his agent’s demands.
There was a deal in place, according to Sky in Italy, which would have taken Romelu Lukaku to Juventus with Dybala heading to Old Trafford.
The transfer was hinging on Dybala’s preference and his agreement of personal terms with the Premier League side.
However, United are now considering a late move for Tottenham midfielder Eriksen before Thursday’s deadline.
