Paper Talk: Man Utd in Juventus talks over sensational striker swap

Date published: Saturday 27th July 2019 9:23 - James Marshment

Manchester United and Juventus could arrange a significant swap deal over a pair of £80m-rated forwards, while a key man will look to quit Spurs on a free next year, according to Saturday’s newspapers.



Juventus have reportedly talks with Manchester United over a swap deal which would see Romelu Lukaku head to Turin and Paulo Dybala move to Old Trafford.

Both attackers have found their names at the centre of plenty of speculation this summer, with Belgium powerhouse Lukaku the subject of plenty of attention from Inter Milan.

Dybala, meanwhile, looks likely to leave the Serie A champions after seeing his game time severely reduced since the capture of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer. Manchester United are the main name being mentioned as potential suitors for the Argentina forward.

And now those links to United appear to have grown in strength, with the Daily Mirror, as per Italian outlet Gianluca Di Marzio, claiming Juve are keen to agree a straight swap with United for the two players.

It’s claimed the Old Lady are looking to freshen up their frontline and see the addition of Lukaku as the perfect way to do that, with the player close friends with United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Dybala scored the winner for Juve in their Champions League match at Old Trafford last season, but he could be playing there on a more regular basis if talks of the £80m swap deal prove accurate.
