Manchester United‘s reported hopes of signing Paulo Dybala on a free transfer this summer have been given a boost, with the Argentina international open to a move to the Premier League.
Following the expiry of his contract at Juventus, Dybala has not been short of potential suitors so far this summer, with Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly making contact with the attacker over a potential move.
Sky Sports Italy have now claimed that, after a lack of offers from Serie A clubs, the former Palermo man is now considering offers from Spain and England, in what has been described as a transfer U-turn with Premier League sides handed a green light to make their move.
The news comes amid claims that the Red Devils are on the verge of signing former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen.
Erik ten Hag desperately needs to add attacking reinforcements at Old Trafford this summer if United are to improve on a disastrous 2021/22 campaign.
The Dutch manager has already lost the likes of Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba this summer, while Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly made it clear that he wants to leave for a Champions League club.
If the legendary striker leaves, then ten Hag will have just Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial available to him as centre-forward options and considering their less-than-impressive recent form, he surely needs to recruit in that position.
Dybala has featured mainly as a central striker or attacking midfielder in his career thus far and the 28-year-old could certainly offer United a very different attacking option, as his creativity and ability on the ball would surely open up opportunities for wide players such as Jadon Sancho, or advanced midfielders such as Bruno Fernandes.
The Argentine forward enjoyed an impressive 21/22 season with Juventus, contribiting ten goals and five assists in 29 Serie A appearances, averaging a superb 7.22 rating from WhoScored for his performances.
When discussing a potential move to Liverpool last year, Paul Robinson suggested that Dybala would be a “phenomenal” addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side, and there is little doubt that he wouldn’t be a success at United as well, so supporters will surely be delighted to hear that he could be swapping Turin for Manchester.
Considering he is available on a free transfer and United are seriously lacking in attacking options, a move for Dybala feels like a no-brainer move for the Glazers, and now that he is reportedly open to a Premier League move, they must act quickly to bring him to Old Trafford.
