Dybala still has much to give Juventus

Juventus need to think twice before letting a talent like Paulo Dybala leave, as Anthony Barbagallo insists La Joya can shine for Maurizio Sarri.

The recent sales of Italian starlet Moise Kean and Portugal international Joao Cancelo suggests that Juve is heading in entirely the wrong direction. Selling young talents and keeping aged players like Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain means there is no future project in the works over at Turin. However, the bigger picture here is that the Bianconeri are slowly losing their identity.

'Dybala didn't have United minerals'

Ex-Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says he is glad Paulo Dybala turned down the Red Devils because he ‘hasn’t got the right minerals’.

United had agreed to swap Romelu Lukaku with Dybala, but the Juventus forward opted to stay in Turin and the Belgian ended up joining Inter.

That has left Ferdinand questioning the 26-year-old’s desire, given he is no longer a first pick for the Bianconeri.

Mandzukic one of a kind

Mario Mandzukic doesn’t appear to be part of Maurizio Sarri’s plans, but Vilizar Yakimov thinks Juventus would be wrong to lose the big Croat so easily.

After starting the summer mercato strongly, Juventus’ transfer dealings seem to be taking a strange twist.

The Bianconeri shipped Joao Cancelo to Manchester City in a swap deal that saw Danilo moving to Turin as well as €30mln entering the Old Lady’s bank account. While the Portugal international never really fulfilled his potential under Massimiliano Allegri, he was one of the players that were expected to thrive under Maurizio Sarri.

Did Spurs lower Dybala bid?

According to Tuttosport, Juventus pulled the plug on Paulo Dybala’s move because Tottenham lowered their offer to €62m.

The transfer had been in full swing down to deadline day, but fell apart in the final hours.

It had been suggested Dybala’s wage demands were behind the sudden collapse of talks, or the issue of his image rights.

Now Tuttosport claim it was Spurs who lowered the initial €70m proposal to €62m, considered too low for Juve to accept.

Inter pushing Icardi out

Inter have given his Number 9 jersey to Romelu Lukaku, as Mauro Icardi is linked with Napoli, Juventus and now also Roma.

New record-breaking signing Lukaku will wear the Number 9 shirt at Inter this season after completing his €65m plus €10m bonuses move from Manchester United.

Handing the iconic kit to a new arrival is the latest step, after stripping him of the captaincy, in the open warfare between Inter and Icardi.
