United are set to approach Juventus with a £60 million bid for Paulo Dybala, according to reports.
Jose Mourinho is desperate to add more creativity and flair to his side, and has identified Dybala as a potential solution to his side’s lack of ingenuity going forward.
The Argentine has endured a rather below-par season by his standards, with some believing this is down to the fact that he wants to leave.

Juventus could in fact be willing to sell without the extra persuasion, but it would come at a hefty cost of £60 million.
United do have the money though, and after Mourinho’s comments claiming ‘£300 million is not enough’, the club hierarchy appears set to back him even more than it has in terms of allowance for transfers.
According to Star Sport, Mourinho appears to be ‘confident of luring’ the 24-year-old to Old Trafford, and will attempt to sign him in the summer.
The sports edition of the Daily Star claims that the United boss is set to use Javier Ribalta’s influence to his advantage.
Ribalta worked as the head of scouting at Juventus and enjoyed a good relationship with Dybala, before United came calling and he made the switch to Old Trafford.
Bayern Munich and Barcelona are also said to be admirers of the young forward, who has been dubbed ‘the next Messi’.
