Manchester United: Erik ten Hag pushing for Paulo Dybala deal

Manchester United: Erik ten Hag pushing for Paulo Dybala deal -Manchester United

New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag appears to be pushing for a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.

The Lowdown: Old Trafford talks

Dybala is out of contract in Turin at the end of June at looks set to end his seven-year stay with the Serie A giants ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Reports earlier this month claimed that the 28-year-old’s representatives have already met with Old Trafford chiefs over a free transfer.

Ten Hag was thought to be ‘key’ in United’s attempts to sign Dybala, and as we know, the Dutchman has been officially announced as Ralf Rangnick’s successor since then.

The Latest: Dybala update

Sports Witness relayed updates from Italy regarding Dybala in a story shared on Wednesday. They led with a title suggesting that the Red Devils are interested in Dybala ‘at the push of Ten Hag’, with United now ‘serious’ in their pursuit of the Argentine.

Premier League rivals Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham are also name-checked and could look to talk to the player’s agent over the coming months.

The Verdict: Shrewd move

Ten Hag could be short of senior attacking options when he takes over, with Edinson Cavani set to leave when his United contract expires at the end of the season.

That will leave Cristiano Ronaldo as the only recognised senior striker, so bringing in Dybala, rated at £36m, for nothing, could be an extremely shrewd move.

It looks as if he still has plenty of years ahead of him at the top level, so you’d like to think Dybala will add significantly to his 145 goal tally for club and country, possibly in Manchester.
