Inter Lead Atletico and Tottenham for Juventus Contract Rebel Dybala

After failed negotiations with the Juventus management, Paulo Dybala is finally set to leave the Bianconeri, ending a season-long contract saga that will end with the Argentine starting anew elsewhere.

As a free agent, Dybala is free to notch down a pre-contract agreement with a club of his choice, and he is not short of suitors.

Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotpsur are also keeping close tabs on developments, manly due to the presence of former Juventus director Fabio Paratici, who helped him arrive in the Bianconeri ranks seven years ago from Palermo. Manger Antonio Conte is also said to be a fan of the skillful winger cum forward.

Moreover, transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio (via FCInter1908) revealed to Sky Sports that the player’s intermediary Jorge Antun is registering his agency license in Spain on top of his existing business in Italy, potentially in light of his client’s transfer to a club from La Liga.

He has 113 goals in 283 games for the Bianconeri.
