Chelsea have not made any contact with Juventus about the possibility of signing forward Paulo Dybala, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
Dybala’s future with the Italian club has been in doubt following reports they would look to sell him if he turns down the offer of a lucrative new contract.
The Argentina international’s current deal runs until the summer of 2022 and he has been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Chelsea have been credited with an interest, along with Tottenham and Manchester United.
Someone is asking me about Dybala because he is not extending at the moment his contract with Juventus, so there is nothing decided, but if he doesn’t extend his contract with Juventus before the summer, I think he will leave Juventus.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which is preventing supporters from attending matches and getting the turnstiles moving, clubs are not making anywhere near as much revenue as they would in usual circumstances.
However, by the time the summer transfer window rolls around ahead of the start of the 2021/22 season, there is hope that the situation with the pandemic will be entirely different and supporters, certainly in some aspect, will have started to make their returns.
Should that prove to be the case, clubs will be able to find more wriggle room to splash the cash on potential new signings once again.
