José Mourinho wants Daniel Levy to fund a move for Paulo Dybala after Tottenham was named as one of only two contenders to sign the Juventus star.
Dybala will be out of contract with Juventus in 2022, and there are no plans to discuss a renovation. As such, it appears that both Juve and Dybala are open to the idea of parting ways in the January window.
With an exit now possible, reports earlier this week claimed that Dybala’s agent had contacted six Premier League teams to gauge interest.
However, it is now reported that only one of Tottenham has shown his hand. And Mourinho is reported to be pushing efforts to bring Dybala to Tottenham.
According Todofijaches, Mourinho wants to ‘finish off what Mauricio Pochettino started’ and take Dybala to North London. That alludes to an earlier attempt in the summer of 2019 to sign Dybala. A deal seemed imminent before a load of heart saw the Argentine reject Manchester United and Tottenham.
However, the Spurs look much better placed this time with a seemingly probable parting of the ways.
It is reported that Mourinho wants to bring Dybala in and join him in attack with Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, and Gareth Bale. Mourinho is said to tell Levy that that four-man attack could be the key to Tottenham unlocking their title dreams.
but nevertheless, Fixed claims Spurs aren’t the only ones in the race to sign Dybala. They claim that PSG is the other side that has expressed interest.
They claim the Ligue 1 giants are in the market for a big-name forward and Kylian Mbappé is likely to leave this summer. Real Madrid looks like the most likely destination for the French superstar.
While not a similar replacement, Fixed claims that PSG have already made their move for Dybala. According to the source, his sports director Leonardo has spoken with his agent about a transfer to the French capital.
Furthermore, Juve is reported to have placed an ambitious € 80 million fee on Dybala’s head. However, a fee of between € 50 million and € 60 million seems more realistic given that your deal only has 18 months left to execute.
Tottenham’s transfer record stands at £ 54 million paid by Tanguy Ndombele. If Spurs paid 60 million euros, it would narrowly exceed the fee they paid Lyon for the French midfielder.

Kane talks title possibilities
Kane, meanwhile, has opened up about Tottenham’s Premier League title chances.
Mourinho’s team heads to the weekend’s matches at the top of the table. Having beaten players like Manchester United, Man City and Arsenal, there is a growing belief that this could be the year for Spurs. The year (season) ends with ‘1’ after all …
Kane, however, refuses to take anything for granted. He admits that he enjoys his football with Mourinho after scoring eight goals in 11 games.
“I’d probably say it’s the best form I’ve ever had in my life, the best start to the season for sure,” he said.
“But there is still a long way to go. I’ve had seasons where we’ve been at the top for a while, but it’s a long and difficult race to be there at the end.
“We haven’t quite done it in recent years, but we are just taking each game as it comes.
“The results, like the ones we got against Arsenal and obviously against City a couple of weeks ago, will only help us, so we have to move on.”
