Jose Mourinho is set to reshape his side for next season, and with James Rodriguez deal already in the sack, the Portuguese is now on the lookout for his next potential signing.

Don Balon has claimed that the Manchester United manager’s next goal is to sign the Argentine striker, Paulo Dybala. Mourinho is determined to make a major statement this summer by bringing both Rodriguez and Dybala to Old Trafford.

The Spanish weekly sports magazine also claimed that the Portuguese tactician wants a team full of elite players next season, as United continue with their project to reinforce themselves with stars, and once again establish their dominance over European football.

Dybala has been in phenomenal form this season, and the Argentine has wooed Mourinho, who is convinced that whoever gets the Juventus player will dominate football in the coming years, using his skills and gameplay. The report has proclaimed that the young striker is Mourinho’s next big ‘obsession’ after James Rodriguez.

The 23-year-old has netted 28 Serie A goals for the Old Lady since his arrival in 2015, and is one of world football’s brightest rising talents.

Dybala is said to be a priority signing for United, and the Red Devils are expected to go all out for the forward. However, they are presumed to face some fierce competition in order to secure his signature.

Nonetheless, Juventus would also try to keep Dybala, by doing whatever it takes to resist any attempts from the interested parties to lure the Argentine away.

    “Juventus would also try to keep Dybala, by doing whatever it takes to resist any attempts from the interested parties…”

    Like signing him up to a new 5 year contract? Oh wait, they did that 4 weeks ago.

    Terrible writing and terrible journalism.
