Manchester United are ready to do everything in their power to sign a Juventus striker next summer, while Barcelona will complete a deal for a winger in January – all in the Friday’s Euro Paper Talk.

 

JUVE HITMAN A TOP MAN UTD TARGET

Manchester United will reportedly go all out to sign Juventus striker Paulo Dybala next summer.

The 26-year-old has fallen out of favour under Andrea Pirlo and is expected to be sold next summer, if he does not agree to extend his current contract that runs out in 2022.

Dybala could have quit Turin back in 2019, when both United and Tottenham chased his signature, but he opted to stay put.

But with Juve looking to launch a huge bid for Kylian Mbappe next summer, they are preparing to offload some top players to make room for the PSG superstar.

Douglas Costa, Daniele Rugani, Blaise Matuidi and Mattia De Sciglio have already been moved on, either on loan or permanently.

Dybala notched 17 goals and 14 assists in all competitions last season, but this campaign has been a struggle.

After the arrival of Pirlo, the forward was told he was not in the Juve legend’s plans.

But after a summer move failed to materialise, Dybala has only found the Juventus bench once this season.

 

And according to TodoFichajes, that has alerted United to his potential availability.

The report states that the Red Devils have the financial muscle to pull off the deal after a quiet summer window, and are ready to bid big to get their man.

The Argentina international would cost around €80million, but United also face competition from Chelsea for his signature.

Dybala’s versatility would be a major asset to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the player capable of playing as an out and out striker or as a No.10.

The biggest issue, however, may be convincing him to move to England – given how he has already turned down that opportunity once before.
