The situation surrounding Paulo Dybala’s future at Juventus is taking twists and turns, and the latest report suggests that Premier League giants United are pondering on an atrocious deal to get him to Old Trafford in the summer.
Dybala has been a prime target for the Europa League winners since quite some time, and Jose Mourinho wants the Argentine to play alongside Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez upfront. Dybala will cost United a huge sum, but the Mancunian giants are prepared for the same.
According to a report in RAI Sport, the Old Trafford outfit is set to tempt the Serie A holders with a mammoth £170m bid at the end of the season. This, in turn, would be the second-highest transfer fee of all time, behind Neymar’s record-breaking move to PSG.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his way out, Jose is keen to add Dybala in his attacking foray, despite having the likes of Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, and Marcus Rashford in the squad.
This comes just days after it was reported by The Sun that Dybala had signed a five-year contract extension at Juve with a new £120,000-a-week in wages. However, latest reports state United would definitely be paying him a lot more.
The player has scored 19 goals in 32 matches this season, and was vastly influential in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 encounter against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley. He also scored the winner in the 67th minute for the Old Lady of Turin to send his side through to the last eight of the tournament.
Besides United, Spanish heavyweights Barcelona and Real Madrid are also said to be chasing the versatile forward.
