Manchester United are seemingly eyeing yet another attempt at a possible Paulo Dybala transfer.
This isn’t the first time the Old Trafford club have been linked with a move for Paulo Dybala. In fact, it wasn’t too long ago when United were trying to organise some sort of swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku. In the end, big Rom would end up at Inter, while Dybala would remain in Juventus.
However, Dybala’s contract is winding down. The Argentine currently has less than eighteen months on his deal with Juventus, which understandably has top club’s, including United, sniffing around.
The story comes from Tuttosport’s Tuesday print edition, translated via Sport Witness. Apparently, it’s claimed that United are ‘back in for’ the superstar 27-year-old, adding that the Reds are currently ‘monitoring’ his situation with the Serie A champions.
What’s interesting is that Tuttosport also claim Juventus’ current offer of €12m per year falls short of Dybala’s current €15m per year contract demands – though it’s stressed a deal could still be done.
Check out Tuttosport’s story on Dybala (in Italian):
Dybala is obviously a quality operator who’d bring an awful lot to the table. However, last time these stories came to the table, the Argentine didn’t really seem sold on a United move. That’s not something I’d want in that dressing room right now.
Sure, he may have had a change of heart given our league position at this point in time but I’d want to ensure Dybala is 100% buying into the United project before a move is sanctioned.
Then there’s also a question of where you fit him in. For me, his best position is in that #10 slot, though Dybala can play through the middle as a striker or even out wide. His versatility would be nice to add to the team, though I just don’t think a move for the 27-year-old should be considered a priority right now.
