Manchester United have opened talks over a sensational £155million swoop on Italy, while Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez are once again being linked with moves away from Arsenal, according to Sunday’s papers.
UNITED MAKE DYBALA THEIR NO 1 STRIKER TARGET
Manchester United are preparing a £155m bid for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, according to reports on Sunday.
According to the report, United have already opened negotiations with the Argentinian’s representatives, with Ed Woodward making them aware of Jose Mourinho’s interest.
But the report in the Sunday Mirror claims Dybala, while interested in making the move to Old Trafford, still favours a move to Barcelona.
But United know the package they could offer him could sway the deal in their favour and Juventus are said to be open to selling the 23-year-old, who has no release clause in his contract, which expires in the summer of 2022.
Dybala, who remains in contact with his former Juventus teammate Paul Pogba, has made a blistering start to the new Serie A season, having scored 10 times in six appearances.
