Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Paulo Dybala breaks silence on summer exit from Juventus
Tottenham Hotspur target Paulo Dybala has issued his first message confirming his exit from Juventus in the summer transfer window. He is one of the most sought-after attackers in world football right now, with several clubs vying for his services due to the current situation.
Dybala is out-of-contract at the end of this season, and he has failed to reach an agreement with Juve regarding an extension. Hence, he is set to leave Turin after the current campaign paving the way for Tottenham to try their cards to secure his signature. However, they will face competition from Manchester United and Inter Milan, with the latter supposedly leading the pursuit.
According to Daily Mail Online, the Argentinian wrote in an emotional message on Instagram yesterday about how he did not expect to depart Allianz Stadium in this manner. He followed that by bidding farewell to the fans for their support while conveying that he would forever hold the experience dear to his heart.
“It is difficult to find the right words to greet you, there are so many years and so many emotions involved, all together. I thought we would have been together even more years, but fate puts us on different paths. I will never forget everything you made me experience, every game, every goal. With you, I grew up, I learned, I lived and I dreamed. It has been seven years of magic, 12 trophies and 115 goals that no one will take away from us. Never.”
Should Spurs sign Dybala?
The prospect of signing a world-class attacker like the 28-year-old is always an exciting one indeed. That is further heightened when someone of his quality would be available for nothing after this term. Hence it is understandable why the North London side are pursuing him for a potential move.
“Thank you for supporting me in difficult times. Thanks to those who have accompanied me over the years: from the first to the last, from the fans to the people who work within the club, everyone, coaches and teammates, employees and managers. Wearing this important jersey together with the captain’s armband has been one of the greatest pride of my life, which I hope to show to my children and grandchildren someday.”
However, prising the South American away from the Bianconeri would not be easy, with Inter being the favourites at this moment. It is stated that Dybala prefers to stay within Serie A, which has given Simone Inzaghi’s side the edge in the transfer race as of now.
“Tomorrow will be my last match with this shirt, it’s hard to imagine, but it will be our last goodbye. It will not be easy, but I will enter the field with a smile and my head held high, knowing that I have given everything for you.”
That could be problematic for us considering how the Nerazzurri could also guarantee Champions League football which is still only a possibility in our case. That, coupled with the Argentine’s preference, would seriously hand them a major advantage moving forward.
Spurs could potentially end up needing a right-wing addition this summer, depending upon how the situation unravels in that position. Dejan Kulusevski was brought in the January transfer window and has been an instant success at N17 so far.
That being said, we cannot expect Kulusevski to start every match and play the entirety of the game, especially in a long season. Not to mention, we would also engage in several different competitions, which highlights the need for another quality signing.

Lucas Moura has been a solid servant for us for quite a while, but his goal output has often been subpar. Moura has just six goals and seven assists this season from 44 appearances across all competitions compared to Dybala, who scored 15 times and assisted six times from 37 matches in that same period.
One must also consider how Dybala played under a struggling Massimiliano Allegri’s team while being out injured for a part of this campaign as well. Hence, we must do our best to sign him as he would be an upgrade on Moura, which is a necessary change if we hope to take on rival heavyweights from next season.
