Manchester United fans are having a field day reading the reports coming in. This window certainly began on an underwhelming note with the Red Devils looking incapable of attracting top-talent but as the days roll closer and closer to deadline day, the usual strain of insanity has taken over.
Now, it seems increasingly likely that the Premier League giants will acquire Paulo Dybala as part of an exchange that will see Romelu Lukaku depart to Juventus, amidst other aspects.
A lot of conflicting details exist over the specifics of the deal, including the exact figures and even the players apart from the two involved. However, one alleged detail is bound to raise a few eyebrows.
According to the Daily Mail, Paulo Dybala has made it clear that he wants a massive pay-hike in order to seal the move to Old Trafford. The report suggests that the Argentine forward wishes to make a minimum of £350,000-a-week in order to be tempted away from the Old Lady.

This would see him make parity with the top earners of the Premier League, right alongside Mesut Ozil. Only Alexis Sanchez will bring in a bigger weekly haul if this deal goes through as the Chilean makes upwards of £500,000-a-week at United.
It is clear that Dybala wishes to remain with Juventus and work under new boss Maurizio Sarri in the Champions League. As of such, his rather exuberant demands appear valid.
However, United fans will be wary of giving yet another talent such a massive weekly package. The Sanchez deal alone has reportedly caused heaps of troubles behind the scenes at Old Trafford with the David De Gea saga the obvious indicator.
With Paul Pogba also appearing exit-bound it is certain that the club will also have to offer a raise to his already massive package, tempting him to stay.
As of such, with three top of the line weekly wages in a side that already pays its talents quite generously could quickly spiral into a financial disaster.
