Dybala already snubbed Conte once, but could change his mind in the summer

Paulo Dybala refused to play for Italy when Antonio Conte was in charge of the Azzurri, but the striker and the coach could reunite in North London next season.

Dybala’s contract with Juventus expires in June and according to reports in Argentina, the striker is unwilling to extend with the Bianconeri who are considering changing the terms of the agreement that they had reached with their star.

The 28-year-old had agreed to sign a new €10m-a-year deal in Turin, but the Serie A giants could change the figures in the contract due to their economic issues and Dybala’s poor fitness over the last couple of seasons.

An offer below €10m would prompt the Argentinean to abandon talks with the Bianconeri and begin negotiations with clubs ahead of a free transfer over the summer.

Why Dybala could choose Tottenham or Barcelona over Inter

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are among the clubs interested in securing his services with the former Inter and Juventus coach who is an admirer of the Argentinean and had already asked the Nerazzurri to bring Dybala to San Siro in the past.

Conte also wanted to work with Dybala while in charge of Italy. Dybala has an Italian passport and is, therefore, eligible to play for the Azzurri. However, he snubbed Conte’s call in 2014, opting to wait for Argentina’s.

“I could not play for a country that is not mine,” Dybala told Olé in 2014 when he was playing for Palermo.

“I spoke to my family and I have my entire career ahead, so I prefer to wait for Argentina.”

The Juventus star may not snub Conte’s call for a second time, as according to Tuttosport, he would prefer a move abroad than joining Juventus harsh rivals Inter.

Dybala joined Juventus in 2015 in a €40m move from Palermo.
