Paulo Dybala could be tempted to join Manchester United according to journalist Ian McGarry.
The Argentinian has had a great career at Juventus, but with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, Dybala has failed to produce the same kind of numbers in front of goal while starting just 20 of Juventus’ 31 Serie A games so far.
“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,” said McGarry, speaking 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.”
Many teams are said to be following Dybala’s situation very closely and United could certainly do very well if they are able to get a player of the quality of Paulo Dybala.
