Manchester United made several attempts to lure Juventus star Paulo Dybala to Old Trafford, according to reports in Italy.

Dybala has continued his stunning form in the ongoing season, having already bagged 12 goals and 4 assists in 27 appearances in all club competitions this campaign.

Naturally, he has been the subject of interest of numerous top clubs from all across Europe, with La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid rumored to be the most heavily interested parties.

Furthermore, as per latest reports from Calciomercato, Premier League powerhouse Manchester United also seem to be very much in the midst of the race for Dybala’s signature, and they even tried their luck in signing the talented 23-year-old last year.

Having successfully re-signed Paul Pogba from Juventus for a world record transfer fee in the summer of 2016, the Red Devils also attempted to sign the Frenchman’s ex-teammate Paulo Dybala in the process, but failed to convince the Turin-based outfit to let the striker go.

However, rumours claim Jose Mourinho continues to keep tabs on the Argentine, and will make another bid for the young starlet in the upcoming summer.

But the Portuguese’s interest might turn out to be for naught, as Juventus are in the procedure of extending their pivotal player’s stay in Italy by offering him a brand new contract renewal. In fact, as per Dybala himself, the new deal is set to be finalized as soon as possible.

The Juve front man told reporters: “My agent has had to return to Argentina for the birth of his son. That means we will have to wait for a bit longer, but I remain optimistic, the renewal will come. It does not just depend on what I want, but we also have to listen to Juventus.”
