Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is making attempts to bring in a top notch forward in the New Year, with captain Wayne Rooney struggling for form this season.
This is the claim making the round in the British media this morning and, they report the Red Devils are interested in signing Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.
Dybala, 21, only joined the Serie A champions from Palermo in the summer as a replacement for Carlos Tevez who left for Boca Juniors.
But Dybala could be leaving the Bianconeris as early as next summer, with Man United readying a considerable amount of money to sign the highly-rated one-time capped Argentina international.
United have Rooney as the only out-and-out striker in the squad and Anthony Martial has mainly be used as a left-winger by van Gaal. With the England striker now struggling to make an impact in games, the need to bring in another striker is paramount.
Signing Dybala would be a brilliant piece of business by Man United as the Juventus striker will offer long-term objectives for the 20-time Premier League champions.
