Man United planning January swoop for 25-year-old Argentine forward

According to the Italian media outlets, Manchester United are reportedly considering a January swoop for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.

The Argentina international was strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in the latter stages of the summer transfer window, while Tottenham Hotspur were also credited with an interest.

Neither club were able to agree a deal with Dybala, though, with the attacker’s wage demands and issues over image rights believed to have scuppered their hopes of a deal.

However, as per the Tuttosport, Man United are preparing to reignite their interest in the January transfer window.

The report claims that the 20-time English champions would be prepared to make an ‘irresistible offer’ in an attempt to bring the 25-year-old to Manchester at the mid-point of the 2019-20 campaign.

Dybala, who has only played 14 minutes of Serie A football in the early stages of the season, will see his current contract with the Italian champions expire in June 2022.

The Argentine has been linked with a departure from Juventus for the last two seasons, however, his transfer away was never materialised due to various reasons.

The Red Devils have only taken five points from their first four matches of the new Premier League campaign – failing to win since the opening weekend against Chelsea.
