Manchester United want £28million-rated 21-year old star in January

Manchester United are planning a big money swoop for Paulo Dybala, according to reports from the Express

Manchester United have made a very positive start to their Premier League campaign so far and the Red Devils certainly look more than capable of challenging for the title this season.

That said though, Manchester City and Arsenal probably possess stronger squads and United will have to strengthen their ranks in order to be able to put up a sustained title bid.

Dybala a target for United

It is clear to see that United are currently short on numbers in attack as manager Louis van Gaal only has Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney to select from at the moment and as a result, there have been widespread claims that the Dutchman will make a swoop for a new striker upon the reopening of the January transfer window.

Now according to reports from the Express, it has been claimed that United are planning to make a swoop for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.

Dybala only joined Juventus from Palermo over the summer for a fee of around £23million and a lot was understandably expected of the 21-year old in Turin.

As it has turned out though, Dybala has endured a difficult start to life at Juventus and it has been claimed that the striker does not enjoy the best of relationships with manager Max Allegri.

Recently, Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini had accused Allegri of ruining Dybala and added that the striker would be better off playing somewhere else. He had said, “Allegri is ruining Dybala. Paulo is football, while the Tuscan coach isn’t. Dybala must be set free to play and express himself like great talent like Messi.

“I believe the Bianconeri are confused. I gave him a lot of advice, especially to become friends with the senators in the locker room, and it seems to me there is jealousy towards him. This also happened in previous years.

“Should this continue I would advise Dybala to leave. Arsenal, Barcelona but also Inter and Milan would welcome him with open arms. Mancini tried to get him in every way but Juventus was stronger financially.”

Due to the friction between Dybala and Allegri, there have been claims that the 21-year old could well be leaving Juventus in January and United are looking to lure the Argentinean to Old Trafford by placing a bid in the region of around £28million.
