Tottenham Hotspur are thinking about making another move to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala in January and are open to Christian Eriksen moving the other way as part of the deal.

Spurs wanted to sign Dybala in the summer but failed to agree a deal with the Italian champions.

However, Mauricio Pochettino remains interested in his fellow Argentine and could go back for him in January, according to Tuttosport in Italy.

The publication further claims that Spurs could be willing to let 27-year-old Eriksen move the other way.

Eriksen stayed publicly that he was looking for a new challenge in the summer after spending six years in north London. However, despite attracting interest from a number of top European clubs and Manchester United, no deal was forthcoming.

Eriksen is in the final year of his contract and could leave for nothing next summer. With little sign of the Dane signing a new deal – despite Spurs’ best efforts to tempt him – they may decide to cash in on him in January.

However, Spurs could face competition for Dybala. Paris St-Germain have been rumoured to be interested and could also return with a bid for the player who has been unsettled in Turin since the arrival of Christiano Ronaldo.

Juventus enter race to sign Neymar

Italian champions Juventus have made a bid for Paris St-Germain star Neymar as they try to gazump Spanish rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona. 

Juve have offered PSG £95 million and forward Paulo Dybala, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

Neymar has been the subject of a tug-of-war for his signature by Barcelona and Real Madrid all summer, with various bids involving cash and a variety of players said to have been made and rejected by PSG.

Barca have recently loaned Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich so have a space in the squad free.

Madrid have been revamping their squad over the summer, spending more than £300 million on new players, but Neymar would be the icing on the cake.

It was thought the race was between the Spanish clubs but now Juventus are serious contenders. The prospect of Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo in the same side would be mouthwatering too as they seek to finally win the Champions League.

However, whether PSG will sell is another matter. They have consistently rebuffed bids from Barcelona and Real Madrid and will want a deal worth north of the £198 million before they even consider selling one of their prized assets.

Juventus plan audacious swap deal for Manchester United star Paul Pogba

Italian champions Juventus are planning to offer Manchester United striker Paulo Dybala and left-back Alex Sandro in exchange for midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports.

Pogba had a frustrating season at United last season, only hitting top form for part of the season. It is believed he now wants to quit the Red Devils – again – this summer.

It is also thought that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prepared to listen to offers for the French international as the rebuilds the side in his own image.

And Juventus could have a very tempting offer, according to the Sunday Express. The newspaper reports that Juventus are willing to offer Dybala and Alex Sandro in exchange for Pogba.

Juventus favour a player-plus-cash deal as they would struggle to meet United’s £120 million valuation of him in straight cash.

Dybala has been linked with United for quite some time. The Argentine was in and out of the Juve side last season as he struggled after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Meanwhile Alex Sandro has been coveted by other Premier League clubs and has a reputation as one of the best left-backs in Europe.

United could be tempted by the deal as Dybala could be a direct replacement for Romelu Lukaku. Solskjaer is also said to be open to offers for the Belgian, who was in and out of the United side last season.

Manchester United line up £85 million bid for Juventus star Paulo Dybala

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has targeted Juventus forward Paulo Dybala as a key transfer target as he begins to rebuild his side, according to reports. 

United officials have already made contact with their counterparts at Juve about Dybala, 25, according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.

Dybala has struggled to find his best form this season after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin. He has scored just 10 goals in 39 games in all competitions and is currently on holiday leave from the club.

With this in mind, Juve may well be ready to sell – especially as they are expected to strengthen further this summer after being knocked out in the Champions League quarter-finals. A figure of £85 million has been quoted in reports, which is well within United’s spending power.

Solskjaer is planning a clear-out of United players this summer following their failure to secure Champions League football for next season. His striking options are under review with the futures of Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial in question.

Lukaku could be an option for Juventus, especially if Antonio Conte returns as manager – he tried to sign him for Chelsea during his tenure there.

Manchester United eye £120 million bid for Juventus star Paulo Dybala

Manchester United are considering making a bid for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala this summer – but only if current striker Romelu Lukaku leaves, according to reports. 

United scouts have been impressed with Dybala for some time with his performances in Serie A and the Champions League.

The Sun claim that United have already sounded out their counterparts at Juventus about the possibility of a deal, and it seems that a bid of £120 million may be enough to get their man.

However, this bid may only happen if United sell Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has appeared to recapture his best form in the past couple of weeks with 4 goals in his last 2 games but there has been speculation that he may leave in the summer.

One potential destination for Lukaku could be Juventus. There has been rumoured interest in him from Turin for some time, so a player-plus-cash deal involving Dybala is not beyond the realms of possibility.

Other clubs in Serie A, notably Inter Milan, are also said to be interested in Lukaku. At 26, he is in the peak of his career so United would want to at least recoup the £75 million they paid Everton for him two years ago.
