Paulo Dybala deal getting closer with the player having to make Manchester United decision by tomorrow


Manchester United may have to play the waiting game to see if Juventus forward Paulo Dybala will sign for the Old Trafford club with Romelu Lukaku heading in the other direction. The rumours have seemingly been developing since the idea was first released into the media earlier in the week. It is even suggested that United would get Mario Mandzukic too.

Towards the end of the week with Dybala returning to Italy, he was given some extra time away from training, needing to return on Monday 5 August 2019. It is reported by the Daily Mail that the 25-year-old will need to notify Juventus of his intentions on Monday, so this might be something that comes to an end quickly, unlike other transfer deals.

Obviously, time is not something both United and Juventus have with the transfer window for Premier League clubs closing at 5 pm BST on Thursday, giving United four days from today to get things across the line. The club is unlikely to let Lukaku leave after the deadline if this does not work out as it will leave them short ahead of the new season.

It would seem that there are complications and Dybala holds the key to the transfer being unlocked with Lukaku all set to leave the Old Trafford club this summer, which could all backfire if the Argentinian decided against the move. Dybala was a star in the Juventus team before Cristiano Ronaldo signed for the club a year ago.

It has also been reported that Ronaldo has been trying to sell the move to United, telling him about the club, the history etc in a bid to tempt him away from Turin. The Times has reported that United has negotiated a deal which would see Dybala and Mandzukic leave Juventus with Lukaku heading in the opposite direction.

It was also suggested that Juventus were happy with the transaction which would see them signing Lukaku without paying a transfer fee, also offloading both Dybala and Mandzukic off the wage bill, which has been under pressure following the arrival of Ronaldo last summer and Matthijs de Ligt this summer.

The Times has also reported that Juventus has ‘encouraged’ Dybala to consider leaving the club this summer, aiming to get him to discuss the proposal rather than to return to pre-season training. The player’s representatives are seeking an annual wage of £10 million, also demanding £10 million commission as part of the deal.

It all seems complicated but reports suggest that both United and Juventus are confident of a deal being agreed, as at the end of the day, would Dybala be thinking about something he did not want and would there be demands of a wage deal if there was no chance he would leave Juventus for Manchester United?

United look set to complete the signing of Harry Maguire with the player undergoing a medical at the club Carirington training ground this weekend with manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggesting that an announcement could be made soon, which would see Maguire arrive as the clubs third summer signing and a new world record for a defender.
