Chelsea Interested in Signing Juventus Star for Free

News Hub Creator

Chelsea are plotting a move for Juventus star Paulo Dybala when his contract expires at the end of the season and are looking to seal a deal after their takeover is complete.

The sale of Chelsea is set to be complete by the end of May and this will see the Club return to business as usual when Roman Abramovich is no longer associated with the Blues. As per 90min, Thomas Tuchel's side are planning to make an approach for Dybala, who will be available on a free transfer when his Juventus contract expires in June.

The report states that contact has been made with Dybala's representatives through intermediaries, and Chelsea hope to open talks with the forward once the ownership situation has been resolved.

Dybala's season at Juventus, which is looking likely to be his final, has beeen hampered by injuries but he has managed to score 13 goals and register six assists in all competitions, an impressive feat.

At 28 years of age, Tuchel could see the Argentinian as a more experienced option in attack, having given youngsters Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Mason Mount a run of games in attack in recent weeks.

However, with the uncertain circumstances surrounding Chelsea at the moment, all transfer activity will be done once a takeover is complete.

The 28-year-old Argentina striker has been in Turin since joining from Palermo in 2015. He has scored over 100 goals for Juve and helped them win five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia crowns as well as reaching the 2017 Champions League final. But Dybala's contract is set to expire in June and Arrivabene said this week that talks over a new deal have stopped and will not resume.

Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri said that "The rapport with Paulo and all the players is good. There are some exchanges of opinion, I am always rather direct, but I am like this for the good of the players, who know they have my faith and admiration."

The Daily Mail claims that Dybala rejected a new deal in October last year and that the offer had included lower wages than he currently earns. The opportunity to sign a player of Dybala's quality and status without a transfer fee is expected to result in a lot of interest. Among the clubs most likely to sign Dybala, according to Calciomercato, are Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Paulo Dybala is set to leave Juventus after seven years at the club. Atletico Madrid will also be looking to replace Luis Suarez, whose contract expires at the same time as Dybala's and might join the race for Dybala.
