Newcastle United have reportedly now ‘made contact’ over the possibility of signing Paulo Dybala on a free transfer in the summer.
The Lowdown: Set to leave
Dybala is now set to leave Juventus as a free agent this summer, after failing to agree on a new deal with the Old Lady.
The Latest: Contact made
Taking to Twitter, reliable ESPN journalist James Olley has revealed that the St. James’ Park faithful are one of a number of clubs to have ‘made contact’ with the representatives of Dybala over a potential move in the summer.
Should Newcastle sign Dybala?
Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Arsenal have also done the same, although nothing is at an ‘advanced stage’ yet, and Dybala is ‘assessing’ his options.
The Verdict: No-brainer
Signing a player of Dybala’s quality on a free is surely a no-brainer for the North East club.
The Argentina international has recorded over 200 goal contributions for both club and country over the course of his career so far, and is in his prime at 28 years of age.
Described as ‘world-class’ and ‘phenomenal’ by former Premier League goalkeeper Paul Robinson, brining in Dybala would pave the way for other stars to arrive on Tyneside, which would really help elevate Eddie Howe’s squad.
