Former Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello has urged Juventus to trade Paulo Dybala for red-got Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The 74-year-old tactician won the Serie A title twice during his two-year reign at the Allianz Stadium but they were revoked over match irregularities.
He has, however, urged the Old Lady to forget about re-signing Paul Pogba and focus on luring the Spurs forward away from the Premier League.
The Argentine's current deal expires in the summer of 2022 yet, he has been linked with a move away from Juve. He is also unsure where his future lies after stalling on a new deal with them.

Reports claim the attacker and his agents rejected the offer they got from the Italian champions, claiming it was too low.
Juve president Andrea Agnelli spoke out on the speculation surrounding the 27-year-old's future earlier this month as reported by Goal.
“We see him as the captain of the future. I know he has already received a proposal that would put him among the top 20 best-paid players in Europe. We’re looking forward to his response.”
Manchester United appear to be the most likely destination for the 27-year-old as they are plotting to use Pogba as a bargaining chip to achieve their purpose.
Capello who won the Champions League title with AC Milan in 1994 said the only way Juve should allow Dybala to leave will be to trade him for Kane. He told Gazzetta Dello Sport:
“Paulo reminds me of Savicevic, he too preferred to start from the right. He had great vision and special dribbling abilities.
“He had that great strength in the lower body to escape the tackles. Dybala is better at finishing, while Dejan was more an assist man. He had a quick pass. Well, maybe Dybala is a bit more individualistic.
“I wouldn’t swap Dybala to get Pogba. If I could, I’d trade him with Tottenham’s English striker Harry Kane.”
Dybala has been restricted to just 10 starts for Juve this season, with niggling fitness issues and a positive COVID-19 test restricting his contribution.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Paulo Dybala had an argument with Juventus chief Fabio Paratici for the second time after missing out of Andrea Pirlo's starting XI against Crotone.
The 26-year-old was an unused substitute in the Old Lady's 1-1 draw at the Stadio Ezio Scida earlier this weekend.
