Manchester United were heavily linked with Juventus star Paulo Dybala in the summer transfer window
Last month, Goal.com reported that United were ready to welcome him but the Argentine international eventually stayed with The Old Lady.
Now, as per reports going on in Italy (TuttoSport), it is stated that Man Utd could return to finally sign the playmaker in January, however, they do face competition from Champions League clubs like Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain.
Transfer: Man Utd to make stunning move to sign £80,000-a-week playmaker – Report
The 25-year-old can play on the flanks as well as in the center forward position but naturally, he plays in the hole behind the main striker. The Red Devils neither have a natural secondary striker nor a quality CAM to effectively deploy behind the main center forward.
In such a scenario, Dybala, who earns around £110,000-a-week in Turin (The Mail), would be a top signing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The South American attacker has been an important player for Juve over the years but since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo last year, things have changed. The Old Lady have also brought Higuain back and now, Dybala is mainly a bench warmer.
The former Palermo star was an unused substitute in the opening league game of this season against Parma and in the second fixture, he featured for just 14 minutes vs Napoli. He is in his peak years and should leave the Bianconeri for regular first team football.
If he opts to move to United in January then he will not be able to take part in the Champions League because they are in the Europa League.
In your view, should United offer Paulo Dybala a lucrative deal to convince him to sign in January?
Absolutely! Dybala should also be a priority with Bruno Hernandez and Jadon Sancho. No gains for Dybala to warm the bench in Serie A and the CL when he can play 90mins in the Europa League and EPL for United this season and assist MU to finish top 4 and/or win the Europa League to qualify for the Champions League, next season.
Man Utd should forget about buying Tony Krooz and focus on splashing cash for Dybala, Hernandez, Sancho, Maddison and/or van den Beek, especially if Pogba continues to hint about leaving to play in Europe. I reckon Pogba should stay with Oles’ youth plans and enjoy combining with one or two top ACM’s, a top Right Winger, and help MU push into top 4 and CL, next season.
