Manchester United have joined Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Roma attacker Paulo Dybala this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport (page 8).
The Argentine signed for the Giallorossi on a free transfer from Juventus last summer, and had a brilliant debut season with 18 goals and eight assists from 38 appearances.
Despite his impressive showing, there are doubts whether he will remain at Roma. The 29-year-old has a foreign release clause of just £10 million in his contract.
Corriere dello Sport report that the Premier League could be his next destination with the likes of United, Chelsea and Tottenham interested in securing his signature.
Dybala would be a no-brainer signing for United
Dybala has been one of the best-performing forwards in Serie A for some time. He could now pursue a fresh challenge amid the low buy-out clause in his contract.
United are currently on the hunt for a marquee striker to lead the line, but they should still make an offer for Dybala, who can play in the second striker role or on the right wing.
The Argentine star has had trouble with minor niggles over recent years but when fit and firing, he has been a creative force with his regular goal contributions.
At £10m, he would be a no-brainer signing for any elite club. His wages are also on the affordable side. He is on £116,000-a-week and may not demand a significant hike.
However, the Red Devils will need to be quick as the Blues and Spurs are also keen. Spurs have been long-term admirers of Dybala and failed to sign him four years ago.
The interest from the Blues is also unsurprising. They are now managed by Mauricio Pochettino, who was Spurs’ head coach during the 2019 summer transfer window.
