Manchester United approached over Paulo Dybala deal

Manchester United’s transfer plans have been through the wringer this summer. Going into the two-month trading window, there was a feeling that signing a striker was high on their list of priorities.

This seemed to change, however, when top target Darwin Nunez ended up joining Liverpool in a big-money move. Instead, all focus was laid on signing a midfielder, with Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong the prime target. Christian Eriksen, the former Tottenham and Inter Milan star, has also been linked.

Signing a striker seemed unlikely just a couple of weeks ago but Cristiano Ronaldo’s sudden wish to leave the club has triggered United into scanning the market for a forward.

RB Leipzig forward Brian Brobbey, who knows Erik ten Hag well after their time together at Ajax, is one of the players to be linked in recent days.

Former Juventus star Paulo Dybala was close to joining United three years ago but a move didn’t materalise. Now, it has been reported that United have been approached over a deal to sign him once again.

Dybala is a free agent after leaving Juventus last month and the Argentina international is yet to commit his future to a new club, sparking links to United.

According to ESPN, United have been approached about the possibility of resurrecting their interest in the 28-year-old. He looked set to join Juventus’ bitter rivals Inter Milan but the Nerazzurri’s interest is thought to have cooled and Dybala’s agents are now gauging interest from the Premier League.

Furthermore, any interest in Dybala is not said to impact their stance on Ronaldo. Earlier on Saturday, it was claimed that although United are publicly insisting that the 37-year-old is not for sale, that position is not as steadfast privately.

SN’s verdict…
United are unlikely to make the same mistake they did in their 2019 pursuit of Dybala. The Argentinian’s astronomical wage demands caught them by surprise at the 11th hour and a move was abandoned.

It’s nearly mid-July and Dybala is yet to sign for a new club, despite confirming he would be leaving Juventus in May. Some would interpret that as a red flag. At 28, his next contract is likely to be his last ‘big’ deal from a financial viewpoint.

Should Ronaldo leave, signing a replacement is paramount but ultimately, a decision will fall on Ten Hag.

  1. Man utd is a joke. Just one signing; no midfielder, no striker, no DM. Just huffing and puffing so far with all our rivals strengthening on daily bases. I wonder the league we want to play in this season. Shows our lack of ambition and ineptitute. At the end of the day when we are short of options we would end up with aged retiring injury proned pensioners, some greedy mercenaries playing for their pockets other than the badge or a bunch of lazy blokes who wouldn’t even make the cut in league one or the championship.

    1. Guy let’s say the truth, Man u are going out for players but bcuz of the condition of the club they (the players) would not come. Let’s take a look at haaland Man City but him at an average amount yet he came. If it’s Man u they were ready to pay More money , he didn’t come. Bro, players of now a days are searching for Greener pasture. They don’t want to endure.

  2. What i have come to noticed or realized about manutd is that they are nothing but an old glory club still leaving in their past glory,they claimed to be a rich club buh honestly speaking they are nothing but a very poor and mouth making club,they want a good player but they end up not getting him simply because they are fond of pricing and pricing,they always find it difficult to buy good and competent players simply because they a dam too stingy a club,they don’t want to spend money to buy good players and yet they wish to be champion of England.Manutd is nothing but a dead club.

  3. You’re very correct…in as much as they kept on gallivanting around in the market without major signings.. This season will be more disappointing…..but the fact remains… Its a shame on the management as they struggle to sign players despite many players left the club.

  4. I want urgent signing and they club should get dybala from Juventus to strengthen it. I wonder what the club want to play this season I can’t remember when last man u took a title better since they can’t afford haaland let them get midfielder and dybala

  6. United is simply not a serious team,they are joking with our heart. They should use money and buy good players

  7. Ranaldo 37 and Cavani not far off it showed more desire to win than anyone United player over the last ten years, don’t blame Ranaldo for wanting to leave. Its a big world out there find the young players that want to prove themselves and for get about the 100 million, 70 million even 40 million there out there go get them thats what the scouts are there for. Don’t like saying it but look at Liverpool that’s what they have done. Fergie did it. Build a team of hungry want to show the world players but cheap. That’s my opinion.

  8. Why dont we all just suck it and see? Obviously we are all of pd off but let’s give the guy a chance.
