According to the latest reports, Premier League giants Manchester United have made contact with Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala in a bid to try and lure the Argentine playmaker to Old Trafford in this summer transfer window.
Manchester United suffered a horrendous season as they finished in sixth place in the Premier League table but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that the Red Devils are looking to get better and compete for major honors. The Red Devils confirmed the signings of Daniel James and Aaron Wan Bissaka this transfer market, but United are still looking to add more reinforcements to their team to build on what they want to achieve.
There is still speculation revolving around World Cup-winning French midfielder Paul Pogba as the 26-year-old is constantly linked with a move away from Manchester United. Pogba has admitted that it is his dream to play for La Liga giants Real Madrid and a move to the Santiago Bernabeu is still on the cards as the Los Blancos are monitoring his situation.
Marouane Fellaini left Old Trafford in January to play his football in the Far East and Ander Herrera joined Paris Saint Germain this summer which is leaving United short on high-class midfield options. But Solskjaer wants to land a big-name player in the summer that can fill in the boots for Pogba if the midfielder decides to leave.
Recent reports have claimed that United are targeting Juventus midfield maestro Paulo Dybala in the summer as the 25-year-old seems to have lost his place to Cristiano Ronaldo at Turin. Even Belgian forward Romleu Lukaku is on his way to join Inter Milan and United want a forward that can score and create goals on a regular basis. Dybala has the potential and the ability to make things happen in the final third and the star winger could ponder on a move to Old Trafford to attain regular football.
But Dybala is not rushing to make a move away from the Italian champions and he is still looking forward to working with Maurizio Sarri. United have made contact with the forward but a move to the Premier League this summer seems unlikely.
I don’t think that Manchester United can sign a player like Dybala this summer because they will not be playing in the Champions League. More so, United should first decide on the players that they want to offload before heading into the transfer market for new arrivals.
