Chelsea fan asks Paulo Dybala if he is coming to Chelsea amid £10million release clause claim

Chelsea fan asks Paulo Dybala if he is coming to Chelsea amid £10million release clause claim

His response is telling.

A Chelsea fan asked Roma’s Paulo Dybala if he was coming to Chelsea this summer.

New Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to lift the mood at Stamford Bridge after a dismal campaign that saw the club spend over half a billion, only to finish trophyless and claim a 12th-place finish in the Premier League.

Pochettino, the fourth manager of Todd Boehly’s 15-month tenure as Chelsea owner, has called on the likes of Enzo Fernández, Mykhaylo Mudryk and Raheem Sterling to live up to their expensive price tags next term.

There will also be new arrivals this summer, with Dybala having been linked with a surprise move to west London in recent days.

Pochettino tried to sign his compatriot during previous spells at Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain and will be encouraged by a reported clause in the 29-year-old’s contract that allows him to join a time outside of Italy for just £10million.

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva added further fuel to the fire when he revealed he had spoken to Dybala about joining Chelsea on Sunday when the pair bumped into each other at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix.

However, Dybala has since dismissed talk of a move.

Chelsea fan asks Dybala about Chelsea switch

As seen in the above video, a Chelsea fan questioned Dybala over speculation he would be moving to the Premier League side this summer.

In a video via Sam.Grayyyy on Instagram, the Blues fan approached Dybala and asked “Are you coming to Chelsea?”

Supporters hoping for a fruitful answer to the question will be disappointed, however, as the Argentine coyly laughed before pivoting out of frame.

But Dybala did later dismiss suggestions he would be moving to Chelsea, insisting he is happy at Roma.

Speaking to LAROMA24 via Metro, he said: “I’m motivated for pre-season, which we’re starting tomorrow [Monday]. My future? I’m happy at Roma. I’m staying here.”

The rumours Dybala would be moving to Pochettino's side always seemed strange, given the club has already added Villarreal’s Nicolas Jackson and RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku to their ranks this summer.

Nevertheless, veteran centre-back Silva admitted he was keen to play alongside the World Cup winner next term, telling Sky Sport Italia: “I saw Paulo Dybala here, they [the media] talk about him coming to Chelsea.

“I’ve talked with him and asked him if he is coming. He is a world-class player. I would love to play with him, it would be a massive signing. Let’s see.”
