Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants to sign Paulo Dybala for his new club Chelsea, having tried to bring him to Tottenham Hotspur when he was in charge of Spurs.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Paulo Dybala from AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are also claimed to be looking at the Argentina international playmaker.

The report in the Italian publication has claimed that Pochettino, who is now in charge of Chelsea, wanted to sign Dybala for Tottenham in 2019 and was disappointed that Spurs could not do a deal.

It is Pochettino who is driving Chelsea’s interest in his Argentine compatriot and has told his bosses to get a deal done, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners have reportedly made contact and want to get more information regarding a potential deal for Dybala, who can operate as an attacking midfield, forward or winger and was described as “a world-class player” by Brazil and Real Madrid legend Roberto Carlos on DAZN in April 2022.

Could Chelsea sign Paulo Dybala?
In our opinion, Chelsea could be able to sign Paulo Dybala from AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

Corriere dello Sport have reported that Dybala has a release clause of €12 million (£10.26 million) in his contract for foreign clubs.

Chelsea could easily pay that sum, especially if Pochettino wants him at Stamford Bridge.

And the chance to move to the Premier League and play for one of the biggest clubs in the world would be hugely appealing for the 2022 World Cup winner with Argentina.

Tottenham have signed just England international playmaker James Maddison, while attack-minded Mason Mount has moved to Manchester United from Chelsea.

So, it is hard to see Spurs or United really try to sign Dybala now, leaving Chelsea potentially the only English club keen on him.
