Paulo Dybala has been linked with Manchester United in the past

Paulo Dybala was a target for Manchester United but he is set to stay at Juventus

Manchester United target Paulo Dybala is set to extend his stay with Juventus as fresh contract negotiations have started (h/t Football.london).

The 26-year-old was in fine form last season as he helped the Serie A club to another league title. Dybala scored 11 times and provided six assists in the league but has struggled for game time this season.

He doesn’t have a start in the Champions League and has featured in one league game so far. Dybala has also been linked with a move to Chelsea, according to Tuttomercatoweb (h/t Football.london) but that seems to be off now.

Fabio Paratici, the Juventus director, has opened up on talks of a new deal with the Argentine (h/t Football.london):

“We’re in talks to extend Paulo Dybala’s contract.

“He wants to stay and we want to keep him, he’s part of our future. We’ll continue the negotiations to find an agreement.”

A missed signing for the Red Devils?

Dybala was a name that was targeted by us last season (h/t Sun). Tottenham also were linked with the Argentine but he remained at Turin and performed exceptionally well.

Dybala is contracted with the Turin giants until 2022 and that should extend further once the parties can agree on a new deal.

The Argentine can play just behind the striker and would have been a great addition to our team. We do have a talented attack, while our midfield was bolstered by the signing of Donny van de Beek.

Edinson Cavani is another big name who is yet to make his mark for the Red Devils. Dybala’s signing would have provided Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with several options on how to deploy him.

However, we seem set to miss out on the Argentine unless talks breakdown again between the two parties.
