Multiple reports in both English and Italian media claim that Manchester United are in negotiations to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala. The Argentine attacker’s agent is reportedly in London attempting to reach an agreement on personal terms with United. Juventus are supposedly interested in signing Romelu Lukaku, and have made Dybala available in part exchange.

From the BBC:

“It is understood negotiations are at a very early stage and there is no guarantee United will make an offer for the Argentina forward, or that he would welcome a move to Old Trafford.

However, it is understood Juventus are willing to let Dybala leave as they are keen on United forward Romelu Lukaku.”

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, if Dybala can agree terms with United, the two clubs would then push ahead with the swap deal. Lukaku had been linked most strongly with Internazionale, and yesterday Inter’s chief executive, Beppe Marotta, confirmed that a bid had been rejected.

“We made a strong offer, one that is valid and suited to the transfer value of the player and we were unable to conclude a deal.”

With Inter refusing to meet United’s valuation, Juventus may now be in a position to swoop, particularly if Dybala and United have mutual interest. United have so far refused to deny today’s reports, so there may be some traction in this.
