Tottenham Hotspurs reportedly turned down a chance to sign star Argentine and soon-to-be-free agent Paulo Dybala. Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy rejected this offer after he came to know the player’s humongous salary demands.

Dybala confirmed that he is leaving Juventus after seven long years in Turin via social media. During his stay in Turin, he won 5 Scudettos, 4 Italian Cups and 3 Italian Super Cups. He also won the Player of the Year of Juventus in the 2019-2020 season. Before Juventus, he also played for Palermo.

Although his next destination is unknown, a number of Premier League clubs registered interest but there’s nothing substantial. After Conte’s move to Tottenham, they were touted to secure his signature ahead of Arsenal. Now, the Daily Mail claims that Dybala is after a significant pay packet of £280,000 per week at his new club.

Reports are incoming that Inter offered him £260,000 per week but he is holding out for better wages. He demanded £373,000 per week from Juventus but they rejected it.

Farewell message from Dybala

Dybala wrote on social media: “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 be 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 7 years of magic, 12 trophies and 115 goals that no one will take away from us. Never.”

“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.”
