Manchester United are poised for a massive summer transfer window. Being deprived of Champions League football will mean that a lot of top talents could be potentially uninterested in making the move to Old Trafford and plying their trade in the Europa League.
Plus, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s relative inexperience at the top doesn’t necessarily inspire confidence in a player like a character like Zidane would to make the switch.
As of such, the Red Devils have to rely on their spending power and brand value in order to attract talents, while being title contenders in the Premier League may also work in their favor.
Now, Calciomercato reports that the Mancunian outfit have begun talks to try and pry away €100m-rated Paulo Dybala from Juventus.
The Argentine striker has been linked with them on countless occasions and the fact that he is presently on granted holiday in England is certainly piquing interest in the matter.
It is understood that Dybala is frustrated with having to play second-fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo at the Serie A giants, with this season being the first one since 2015 where he’s scored fewer than 19 goals and has been restricted to just 39 appearances as of now.
Further, United’s interest in the world-class striker is also aided by the fact that Romelu Lukaku seems to be exit-bound.
Interestingly, this could work in United’s favor. Juventus are allegedly looking to sack Allegri after their Champions League debacle and Antonio Conte is said to top the list of potential replacements.
Conte badly desired Lukaku during his stint at Stamford Bridge and could make the Belgian a priority signing if he joins the Italian outfit. As of such, the Dybala deal can take the nature of a massive swap, with the likes of Cancelo and Matteo Darmian also in the fray for both clubs.
