Manchester United’s pre-season form has really taken the focus away from their transfer pursuits.
The impeccable manner in which Mason Greenwood has impressed upfront has led many fans to believe that the Red Devils need not waste money on new attacking signings and ought to stick with the academy graduate.
Similarly, the prowess of Tahith Chong has inspired new hope in the future and the capable manner in which Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay have held themselves in the midfield may have soothed some war cries for investments in that area too.
In that regard, it has only been the ineffectiveness of Jesse Lingard at aiding Paul Pogba and the strikers, as well as the lack of a ball-playing centre-back that looks to be key woes for the Mancunian giants.
While the progressing sagas of Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes ought to solve those issues, United are now in the midst of another high-profile pursuit.
Paulo Dybala to Manchester United just got a whole lot more serious as the Daily Mail reports that Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer is looking to sign the Argentine striker as a replacement for either Paul Pogba or Romelu Lukaku.
Both players looked staunchly exit-bound a few weeks ago but now the strong stance from Old Trafford seems to have changed matters a bit. In both cases, United will not budge from their asking prices and Inter Milan and Real Madrid may fulfill the English side’s desire.
Either way, Dybala would be the apt big-name presence in the side and would also bring in the lost commercial appeal from the departure of any of the names.
Further, it is believed that Juventus will sell the 24-year-old only if a transfer fee upwards of £70-90 million is offered by the Red Devils. In that regard, something promising may develop from the saga soon.
