Juve willing to swap 24-year-old creative forward plus £50 million for out-of-favour Man Utd star

Juventus are reportedly prepared to offer Paulo Dybala to Manchester United as a makeweight in a £150 million return for midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Argentine forward, valued at approximately £100 million, has struggled to keep his place in Massimiliano Allegri’s side since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid this summer.

Moreover, Dybala doesn’t get much of a look in with the Argentina national team which surprised many this past summer at the World Cup in Russia, when things went pear-shaped for the two-time world champions.

According to the Sunday Mirror, he could be used as a sweetener to bring France star Pogba back to Turin – potentially as early as January.

Serie A champions Juve are keen for Pogba to return to them just two years after he went back to Old Trafford in a then-world record £89 million deal. Even though the Frenchman has failed to perform consistently for the Reds, the club will still expect to make a profit from selling him on again.

Pogba’s fall-out with manager Jose Mourinho has made matters worse and his performances for United are telling on that note. He was also linked with a move to Barcelona over the summer, as per the Daily Star.

But a potential swap-plus £50 million deal could suit everyone concerned with United getting a creative force and a goalscorer in 24-year-old Dybala.

Last season, the Argentine scored 26 goals for Juve but has started just one match for them in the Serie A so far this term.

Pogba excelled in Italy previously, winning the Scudetto in all four of his seasons there, but has been unable to replicate that under Mourinho at United.

Is this a good deal for Man Utd?
