On the transfer front, things went pretty quiet for Manchester United while they were out on tour in the Far East.
Well, it seems as though the Red Devils are picking up the pace now they’re back in Europe, with a potential move for Paulo Dybala seemingly gathering momentum.
The latest update on the Argentine’s future comes from the BBC, who confirm that United are in talks to sign the classy 25-year-old from Juventus this summer.
At this point, negotiations are at a ‘very early stage’ although there’s no guarantee that United will make an official bid or Dybala is willing to make the move to Old Trafford.
However, Juventus are willing to let Dybala leave as they’re keen on signing United forward Romelu Lukaku before the transfer window slams shut.
Dybala oozes quality. He’s a player with massive potential and what a signing this would be if Edward Woodward could pull it off. It’s easier said than done, mind, but the option for some sort of swap deal involving Lukaku does seem there.
To me, it feels as though the move is dependent on what Dybala wants. If he’s happy to fight for his place and stay put in Turin then fair play to him, but what that means for Lukaku I’m not so sure…
