Manchester United can complete the signing of Paulo Dybala in the summer window if they can offload Lukaku to Inter, according to football consultant Ian McGarry.
There are still a few weeks to go before the transfer window closes and both the clubs continue to be in the negotiations. It is widely expected that the Belgian will get his desired move to Inter Milan, eventually.
With United’s reported interest in Paulo Dybala, would we be able to complete the transfer for the Argentinian this summer as Lukaku’s replacement?
As per Ian McGarry, Tottenham Hotspurs are also in the talks for the services of the attacking midfielder, but the London club is way off the Juventus’ evaluation of the player:
“The Spurs offer is kind of a classic Daniel Levy tactic.
“It’s a low-ball figure. They’ve been told by the player’s agent that he is very interested in coming to England and the offer was €45m [£40m], which comes out at around £41.2m.
“That’s nowhere near Juventus’ valuation of the player. They seem him as a player who is worth at least €80m [£72m].
“I think the figure that they would accept would maybe be slightly less than that because they need to recoup some of the huge amounts of money that they have already invested in this window, with regards to both signings and the salaries that they’ve paid to the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot – who have joined on free transfers.
Juventus have been very active in the transfer window this summer and the Turin club needs to offload a few players to meet the Financial Fair Play demands which make the Dybala transfer all the more viable.
But where do we stand on the deal? As per McGarry:
“As far as Manchester United’s interest is concerned, I’m told that it will depend on Romelu Lukaku leaving the club.
“And therefore the interest from Inter Milan is gonna be pivotal towards whether or not Dybala becomes a realistic target, a realistic signing.”
While we are well stocked in the attacking midfield department, the opportunity of having Dybala at Manchester is just too good to pass up, even if that means we have to sell one or two players to make way for him!
