As the transfer market races on at full speed, there have been a few deals that have caught the imagination rather strongly.
Manchester United’s intentions seem to be set on ending the window on a high note, and they have been granted the opportunity to do so from an unlikely source.
Romelu Lukaku’s potential exit from United will serve a didactic purpose, as the striker will no longer be surplus to requirements and could also be the crucial factor in the arrival of Paulo Dybala from Juventus.
According to Goal, Manchester United are more than willing to meet Dybala’s wage demands of £10m a year after tax, and have no problem in making him one of the highest earners in the Premier League.
The report holds that Dybala, who still wishes to continue with Juventus, has landed in Turin on Thursday and is slated to hold talks with Maurizio Sarri about his future.
The former Chelsea gaffer is likely to reveal to the Argentine forward that he doesn’t feature in his plans for the Old Lady. The report adds that on a purely club level, the deals have been agreed to. The crucial aspect left pending is for Dybala to agree to move to United.
In that regard, the player’s agent Jorge Antun is stated to be in London working out the finer details of the deal. The bottom line appears to be a £350,000-a-week wage package in order to convince Dybala to don the United jersey.
Dybala has long been slated to be the perfect player for United and fans will now be hoping that this attractive deal will seal the deal.
