Paulo Dybala is set for a bumper new Juventus contract after snubbing interest from Manchester United, according to a report in Italy.
Jose Mourinho was only officially confirmed as United’s new manager on Friday, but Tuttosport claims he made contact with intermediaries of Dybala 10 days ago only to be informed the Argentina striker was not interested in leaving Turin this summer.
Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be interested in Dybala, but the 22-year-old’s commitment to Juve is set to be rewarded with a new contract which will virtually double his salary to €4.5million a year, bringing him in line with Paul Pogba.
The new deal will also tie Dybala down for a further year until 2021, forcing Mourinho to look elsewhere in his search for reinforcements up front.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gonzalo Higuain are among the other players most heavily linked with summer moves to Old Trafford.
Karim Benzema, however, stressed his commitment to Real Madrid after their Champions League final win over Atletico on Saturday evening.
“I am happy here and I hope to be here for many years,” Benzema said in Milan.
“I thank the people in Madrid for being there for me and my family. Thanks to everybody because they are part of my life and we are going to be used to winning titles.”
