Jose Mourinho has reportedly set Juventus’ Paulo Dybala in his sights, and a mega money bid is being prepared for the star striker, reports the Mirror.
The Red Devils are now working on a mammoth £155 million bid, which is to be made for the Argentine international next summer.
Juventus have claimed that they are calm over their prized forward’s future, as there is no release clause in his contract. The Italian club has also stated that the 23-year-old is in charge of his own destiny, as it will be him who will have to decide to stay or leave, if an acceptable offer comes in for the player.
Even at a young age, Dybala has already established himself as one of the best strikers in the world, and many of the top European clubs are after him.
Barcelona were believed to be leading the race to sign the coveted attacker, but Manchester United’s vice chairman, Ed Woodward, has now approached Dybala’s camp to inform that the player is wanted at Old Trafford.
Woodward enjoys a great relationship with Juventus’ general manager, Beppe Marotta, which could give the Red Devils an edge over all the other competitors looking to sign Dybala.
Paul Pogba has previously spoken of his admiration for Dybala, by stating: “I call Dybala ‘Square R2’. That’s the combination you press on PlayStation to do a turn and shot. He always scores like that. Has he surprised me? No, because I always said he was a phenomenon. To do what he has done, playing for Juve, is something phenomenal.”
