Juventus have reportedly turned down a bid from Manchester United for star striker Paulo Dybala. The Reds were reportedly willing to cough up £70 million plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the 24-year-old Argentine, who has been in fine form in Serie A so far this season. The Sun claim Juve are holding out for £86 million — reportedly as much as Antoine Griezmann’s buyout clause.
José Mourinho is said to have lost interest in Griezmann, with Dybala United’s new top target. However, bearing in mind part-exchange deals Never Actually Happen, we should probably take these reports with a healthy (or not-so-healthy) pinch of salt.
Dybala, needless to say, would make a fine capture for United. He’s one of the very best strikers in Europe at the moment, and is surely only going to improve over the next couple of years. Whether he’s exactly what United need at the moment is another question, but he’d certainly have no problem breaking into the starting lineup.
