According to reports, reigning UEFA Europa League Champions Manchester United are preparing a £155 million bid for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.
The Sunday Mirror reports that Manchester United’s vice-chairman Ed Woodward has already been in talks with Dybala’s camp and has made them aware of manager Jose Mourinho’s interest.
However, Manchester United face tough competition from Spanish La Liga giant FC Barcelona, and Camp Nou is the Argentina international forward’s preferred destination.
Italian Serie A Champions Juventus are believed to be open to cashing in on the 23-year-old, who has no buyout clause in his existing contract, which runs out in the summer of 2022.
Argentine Dybala has made a brilliant start to the current League season with 10 goals in six Italian Serie A matches.
The Argentine scored two goals in Juventus’ 4-0 victory over City rivals Torino on Saturday.
Back in December, Dybala said he remains in contact with Manchester United midfielder and former Juventus star Paul Pogba, who made the £89 million transfer from Turin to Old Trafford over a year ago.
United are also rumoured to be interested in Arsenal star Mesut Ozil. Manager Jose Mourinho is thought to be a big fan of the German, who was under the Portuguese tactician at Real Madrid.
