Jose Mourinho Breaks Silence on Paulo Dybala Joining Chelsea
Jose Mourinho has remained coy about Paulo Dybala's future.

Jose Mourinho has expressed his opinion on Paulo Dybala's future at Roma amid increasing transfer interest from Chelsea this summer.

Dybala, 29, has established himself as a regular starter for the Serie A outfit since arriving on a free transfer from Juventus last summer. He scored 18 goals and laid out eight assists in 38 matches past season.

According to Roma Press, Chelsea have identified Dybala as a transfer target in the ongoing summer transfer window. They are prepared to trigger his £10 million exit clause, which is applicable for foreign clubs.

When queried about Dybala, Mourinho replied to reporters (h/t Metro):

"I don't know anything about his contract right now. But obviously, I talk to Paulo like I do with all of my players. Let's see what's next."
Should the left-footed forward seal a move to Chelsea this summer, he could prove to be an excellent signing for them. He would provide elite competition to summer arrival Christopher Nkunku as a second striker.

Earlier in 2018, Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino was asked to share his opinion on Dybala ahead of a UEFA Champions League tie between Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus. He responded (h/t

"He's a great footballer and Juventus is a different team when he's on the pitch. Like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar, he has the ability to give the team lots of alternative options. It will be tougher for Juventus [to be playing without Dybala]. But they have many other players like [Toronto FC man] Federico Bernardeschi."

Dybala, whose current deal is set to expire in 2025, is averaging a goal and an assist at a fine interval of every 127 minutes in his club career.
