Contract talks stalled – Manchester United keeping tabs on €14 million-a-year superstar

Manchester United could take an advantage of the uncertainty concerning Paulo Dybala’s contractual situation at Juventus.

According to a report from Italian outlet Tuttosport, there is uncertainty surrounding Dybala’s future.

Dybala’s agent Jorge Antun is set to return to Argentina after failing to reach a contract extension agreement with Juventus’ governing bodies.

As the story claims by Tuttosport (via Football Italia), Antun came from Argentina to Turin to finalize Dybala’s contract extension with the club’s CEO Fabio Paratici.

However, Weston McKennie’s COVID-19 positive test in October meant the authorities of Juventus, including Fabio Paratici, had a restriction on organizing any meeting.

Dybala’s future with Juventus is at crossroads as Antun returns to his homeland.

The story further suggests that Dybala wants a double of his current €7 million-a-year salary. Juventus are reluctant to pay the amount.

There’s negative news surrounding Dybala in the dressing room too.

Andrea Pirlo’s revolution at Juventus does not take Dybala into his account. The Argentinean managed to grab only one start this season. New arrivals Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa are preferred ahead of Dybala.

Dybala’s bust up with Juventus chief Fabrizio Patrici in the tunnel after the club’s 1-1 draw with Crotone is another big proof of this.

Dybala himself confirmed that Manchester United were in talks to sign him. But he denied a move. United explored a swap deal involving Dybala and Paul Pogba.

Dybala also held talks with United in the January transfer window 2020 – coming close to leaving Juventus.

United’s interest in Dybala is long proven. He could be available for a cheaper fee in January or next summer. The Red Devils should make generous attempts to bring him to the Theatre Of Dreams.
