'Please no, not needed': Some Chelsea fans react to being linked with 29 capped international

Certain sections of Chelsea supporters weren’t so convinced by the news that their club could be offered Paulo Dybala by Juventus this summer.

This is according to the Daily Star, who reported that both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur would have the chance to secure Dybala and the end of this season.

Despite his big-name status and glittering CV, Blues fans weren’t so sure signing the Juventus forward would be a wise move.



Dybala has been with the Serie A champions for nearly six years, having joined from Palermo in 2015.

Argentina’s 29 capped international grew his already impressive reputation by winning five Italian league titles with the Old Lady, making 244 appearances in the meantime.

This happy relationship may be coming to a halt, with Tutto Sport confirming that Dybala had already turned down a new contract offer from Juventus.

His current deal runs out in June 2022, but would be allowed to leave before that if he didn’t sign a new agreement.

As per the Daily Star, neither Chelsea nor Spurs are preparing a bid for the 27-year-old.

He hasn’t featured in any capacity since early January after suffering a knee injury against Sassuolo.

Juventus are also demanding a £40m (Daily Star) transfer fee for his services.

Combine the price tag and his medical history, Chelsea may not want to commit to acquiring Dybala right now.
