Manchester United are constantly linked with Argentine star Paulo Dybala and the latest reports going on in the media are intriguing.
According to TuttoSport, Manchester United have offered Romelu Lukaku to Juventus in an exchange deal to hire the services of Dybala. this summer.
Another Italian source in the form of La Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Sport Witness) have stated that The Old Lady are prepared to offer the former Palermo playmaker to Man United in order to sign Lukaku. It is stated that Dybala wants a salary of around 9-10 million euros to leave the Serie A champions
United splashed a huge amount of cash to sign Lukaku back in 2017 when Mourinho was in charge of the club. Unfortunately, the Belgian international has failed to shine at Old Trafford.
In the last campaign, he only scored 12 goals in 32 league appearances and he was extremely poor in the second half of the campaign. In 2019, he only netted 5 league goals (last season) and his last goal came way back in March.
In such a scenario, Rashford has taken his place as the club’s first choice center forward, hence, the former Everton man’s future is up in the air and United are demanding a fee of £80million (The Sun) for him.
Dybala won’t be a like for like replacement for Lukaku but the 25-year-old is a proven quality world class star, who has what it takes to largely improve United’s offense.
If we can get rid of an unwanted player like Lukaku to get someone as good as the Argentine then this would be a massive coup for Solskjaer.
The South American star can effectively play as a center forward but naturally, he is a secondary striker. We do not have a world class player, who can operate behind the main center forward, therefore, a top playmaker should be lured and Dybala perfectly fits the bill.
