Man Utd Ready to Sign Wayne Rooney Replacement from Juventus for £78m, not Pogba

Manchester United are reportedly keen on Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala during the summer according to reports.

Although Real Madrid, Chelsea, Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City are also keeping a close eye on his progress, United look very ready to battle it out just to secure the services of the 22-year-old forward.

The Argentinian has been in red-hot form for the Old Lady since his transfer from Palermo at the start of the season, making 8 assists, scoring 13 goals in 24 Serie A appearances up to date. Besides, he has played a key role to help Juventus reach the top of the table after a poor start to the campaign, and his stock has risen in the process.

Arsenal were reportedly linked to Dybala roughly a year ago and were likely to secure his services before Juventus signed him. United were also linked with him last year, but they never looked ready to prepare an official bid for the star.

The Red Devils have been linked with several attackers in recent months as Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial are the only two senior strikers in the squad.

Although their scouting reports have heavily suggested that Dybala would be one of the best young striker they should add to their squad, it seems Juventus are not prepared to let him go for anything short of an astronomical fee, and they are perfectly able to make such demands as Dybala’s contract runs until 2020.

“Juventus are in a position where we can reject all approaches for Paulo – and we have already done that,” Marotta told Italian radio station Gr Parlamento.

“He will become even better when he gains more experience, but he is already a top player right now. Selling him is not even an option for Juventus. And the same goes for Pogba. He is an important player for us. We want to keep winning in Italy and also make an impact in Europe.”

Juventus are reported to have placed a £78 million price tag on the players in order to ward off interest in the player’s services.

The 21-year-old star is one of the most highly-coveted youngsters in the world game as it stands, but previously signed a deal running for five years in Turin when joining Juventus last summer.
And with latest transfer linking Wayne Rooney to Chinese Super League, United are obviously ready to bring in a potential replacement to bolster their attacking line.
