Dybala ready to bury the hatchet with Antonio Conte

Paulo Dybala once rejected Antonio Conte’s advances, but now the pair could re-unite in the Premier League next season.

During Conte’s time in charge of the Italian national team, he asked Dybala, who has an Italian passport, if he would play for the Azzurri but was turned down flat.

““I could not play for a country that is not mine,” Dybala told Olé in 2014 when he was playing for Palermo.

“I spoke to my family and I have my entire career ahead, so I prefer to wait for Argentina.”

That was over seven years ago and according to Tuttosport (via Football Italia) the 28-year-old may now be ready to join up with Conte at club level.

It’s understood that if “La Joya” was to leave Juventus in the summer, he would prefer a move away from Serie A so as not to feel disrespectful to the Bianconeri. Conte has made no secret of his desire to bring him to Spurs.

Reports in Argentina suggest Dybala is unwilling to accept a change in terms of any new deal in Turin. The player had agreed in principle to a new contract worth €10m-a-season.
