Juventus star Paulo Dybala is set to be one of the most lucrative free agents available this summer. And the 28-year-old is set to be hot property if he does end up leaving Turin.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Dybala won’t be signing a new contract with the Serie A side on the conditions they have set, and he’s now set to begin talks with interested parties. Thus, he will leave the club after a hugely successful seven-year spell with his current employers.
Plenty of big teams across Europe have been linked with a move for the 28-year-old. According to 90min, a number of prominent Premier League clubs have been offered the chance to recruit him ahead of next season, with London duo Chelsea and Tottenham said to be among the parties interested.

Nevertheless, if Dybala’s previous words are anything to go by, the Argentine would prefer a move to one of two other European giants, with one of those sides being domestic rivals Manchester City.
“When I play with the PlayStation, I always choose Barcelona or Manchester City,” Dybala told Guerin Sportivo, via the Express, in 2015. “I dream to play one day with one of those clubs.”
Understandably, Dybala made that statement a long time ago, and he may see his career path differently now, especially as he looks to negotiate what is likely to be one of the last big salaries of his time as a professional footballer. Interested clubs therefore won’t be put off, and whoever ultimately lands his signature will be a much better side for it.
