Pochettino wants to transfer Argentine to Chelsea in an agreement worth £300k-a-week
Chelsea is right at the end of having one of their worst seasons in recent history – and may not even make it inside the top ten by the end of the season because of their poor form.
They are without a permanent manager – although Mauricio Pochettino is on his way to the club at the end of the season, and there is a notion that the club will need to add some top-level players to the side to even get Champions League football next season.
And that has led to constant speculation in the media that Dybala is a player that the club is sincerely interested in.
When the attacker signed for Jose Mourinho’s side for free, several release clauses were reportedly agreed to become active after one year.
Now a report from Fichajes, claims that Dybala’s termination clause of just €12 million makes it much simpler for the Blues to bring in the former Juventus man.
Despite the inexpensive fee, Dybala is likely to demand high wages and he has to want the transfer himself, with reports he will want around the £300k-a-week.
A few seasons ago, Dybala was one of the finest attacking players in the world – and would have been a massive signing for CHELSEA – but that is no longer the case.
He is not a player that will have the quality to adapt to the Premier League and Chelsea is better off attempting to sign stars that are already proven in the English game.
So even if Pochettino wants him at the club – it may not be the move that brings CHELSEA back to the summit and challenging.
But we presume he may add something to that Blues attack.
