Man United edge closer to sign Serie A No.10 attacking superstar

Manchester United have made contact with Juventus over a big-money transfer for Argentinian forward Paulo Dybala, according to a report.

The 25-year-old faces an uncertain future at the Allianz Arena, having struggled to adapt following last summer’s arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. Dybala has started just 28 matches this season for the Italian giants and is rumoured to have been made available to purchase.

Calciomercato claims that United are in discussions with Juve regarding a possible £85m deal, which would make him the Red Devils’ marquee signing of the off-season.

Juve are expected to rejuvenate their squad this summer after falling short in the Champions League, with Douglas Costa and Miralem Pjanic two others potentially on their way out of the Allianz Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are reportedly seriously considering a move for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak to replace David de Gea.

The 26-year-old, widely considered one of the finest goalkeepers on the planet, recently signed a long-term deal with Atletico that runs through until 2023.

Oblak’s latest contract contains a £104m release clause and, according to ESPN, United see that sum as excellent value for a player boasting the stats that the Slovenian does.

The report suggests that the 26-year-old will consider quitting the Wanda Metropolitano, despite only agreeing fresh terms two weeks ago.
