Juventus star Paulo Dybala has emerged as a key factor to the future of wantaway Manchester United midfielder Pual Pogba according to reports.
Dybala has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer long as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to sharpen his attacking Arsenal.
The 25-year-old has cut a frustrated figure at Turin at times this season playing second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Pogba meanwhile has left no secret of his desire to leave Manchester United in search of a new ‘challenge’ after spending three years at the club.
