Man United have been given a major transfer boost by Paulo Dybala’s agent who has confirmed that the Argentine is looking to leave Turin in the summer.
Dybala has been one of the standout stars for Juventus in recent years but has been massively overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival this season.
The 25-year-old has only managed 5 goals and four assists in 28 appearances all season playing second fiddle to the Portuguese superstar.
Now his brother Gustavo who also happens to be Dybala’s agent, has come out in public and expressed the forward’s discontent at Juve and also his desire to leave in the summer.
He said: “There are many possibilities that Paulo leaves Turin. He needs a change, he was very much at ease in Italy but now he is no longer.
“Let’s say that Paulo is no longer at ease and happy, as many other Juventus players are no longer well. He is not the only one who will leave. Problem with Ronaldo? No, off the field there is no problem with Cristiano. The problems are on the field: Paulo is young, he has to play.” via : Radio Impacto Córdoba translated by CalcioMercato
This statement coming from Dybala’s agent should be music to the ears of Manchester United hierarchy who have kept an eye on the Argentine ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.
Football expert Ian McGarry earlier in the season also highlighted how Dybala’s move to Manchester United made a lot of sense.
“The guy who’s getable, certainly, and I think could change Manchester United’s fortunes, is Paulo Dybala from Juventus, who has made it clear that he feels he has done everything he can in Serie A, in Italian football, and wants to move,” McGarry said on the Transfer Window podcast.
“I believe his preference is to move to Spain and to Real Madrid.
“However that’s unlikely to happen given where they’re looking in terms of recruitment this summer.
“So a big-money move to England [could happen], ‘cos he’s currently on I think just under £100,000-a-week which by Premier League standards is quite cheap.
“So again doubling his wages and getting him in, he’s not a No 9 per se, he’s more of a kind of No 10, but his goalscoring ratio is very, very good.
“I think if you put him and his dynamism into that Manchester United team and played a 4-3-3, which I think Solskjaer will succumb to in terms of his default formation for maybe the rest of the season but certainly next season – then Dybala could be the man.”
