Report: Man Utd ‘make contact’ with Juventus forward as possible Lukaku replacement

We have lost count of the amount of players Manchester United have been linked with a move for this summer.

The latest is Argentine forward Paulo Dybala, who the Reds have made contact with according to reports in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited by Sport Witness, claim ‘the track is open’ for the transfer of Dybala to take place this summer.

It is believed that Dybala is being lined up as a possible replacement for Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, who has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan this summer.

As seen in BBC reporter Simon Stone’s tweets below, Inter boss Antonio Conte has admitted his clear interest in the 26-year-old.

However, reports linking Dybala to Old Trafford seem far-fetched, particularly because the same report claims that the Argentine wants to stay in Turin to play under new boss Mauricio Sarri.

Sarri is said to be interested in giving Dybala a more prominent role in the Juve side, which has prompted the forward to want to stay at the club.

Lukaku’s exit seems more and more likely, but the chances of bringing in an elite star such as Paulo Dybala as his replacement looks almost impossible given there is only three weeks of the transfer window remaining.

So far, the Reds have only managed to bring in Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka; Solskjaer needs at least two signings before the window shuts on August 8th.
