& # 39; I was about to leave … until the last minute, we were waiting & # 39 ;: Paulo Dybala admits that he was leaving Juventus in the summer with Manchester United and Tottenham was both interested and refused to exclude the exit of the Serie A future
Juventus star Paulo Dybala has admitted that he came extremely close to leaving the club in the summer.
Manchester United and Tottenham both bid on the Argentinian international last summer after he fell down under Massimiliano Allegri after the arrival of five-fold Ballon d & # 39; Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid .
La Gazzetta dello Sport also revealed last week that Dybala was so convinced that he was leaving Turin to record an emotional video message to Juventus supporters prior to his proposed move to the north.
And speaking to The Guardian Dybala revealed that he was eagerly awaiting a move
& I was about to leave. That was in the club's thinking, I knew it. We were waiting until the last minute. & # 39;
Dybala, however, changed his mind before signing the contract with Tottenham after being inspired by Gonzalo Higuain & # 39; s determination to return to Juventus & # 39; from XI.
His affection for the Italian giants, after joining the club in 2015 from Palermo, and his earlier success in Turin also played a major role in his decision to stay put.
Rumors have surfaced recently that Dybala is about to sign a new long-term contract with the reigning champions of the Serie A after shining under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
But while new conditions are on the horizon until the summer of 2025, he did not conclude a move from the Serie A in the future.
I have two years on my contract . That's not a short time, but it's also not a long one, & he added.
& # 39; We will see what Juventus plans are, if they think I'm going to the next market or if they want me to stay.
& # 39; That is a decision that the club must make. It's hard to know because things change in a second.
& # 39; But I am here in a club that has treated me well; I'm happy, comfortable. [Maurizio] Sarri & # 39; s arrival has helped.
& # 39; He wanted me to stay, which gave me strength if we didn't know what would happen. I knew he could teach me, help me get the best out of myself. & # 39;
