Paulo Dybala’s agent insists he is not to blame for the collapse of the Argentina forward’s proposed move to Manchester United.
The Juventus star looked to be close to an exit this month as the Old Lady attempted to prise Romelu Lukaku away from United, reportedly offering Dybala as part of the deal.
While a breakthrough initially appeared possible, media reports began to shed light on various apparent issues in the negotiations.
Uncertainty over Dybala’s image rights was one reported stumbling block, while it was also claimed his agent – Jorge Antun – had demanded an exorbitant €15 million (£13.7m/$16.8m) commission to get the deal over the line.
Ultimately United and Juve failed reach an agreement and Lukaku joined Inter, but Antun insists the breakdown in discussions was not because of him.
“Yes, I talked to the English club,” Antun told Tuttosport. “But the commission stories are untrue. There were just issues between the clubs.”
