Dybala hands Man United boost, contract talks with Juventus postponed

Manchester United have received a boost in their interest in Juventus striker Paulo Dybala after the Argentine striker admitted his contract talks have been delayed, The Sun reports.

What’s the word?

After reluctantly losing Paul Pogba to Manchester United last season, Juventus have fears of a similar situation occurring at the end of the current campaign as the Red Devils are amongst a wealth of interested sides keeping tabs on Paulo Dybala.

The Argentine forward has quickly emerged as one of the most exciting young striker’s in European football and Juventus deem him to be irreplaceable. However, they’ve hit a stumbling block when negotiating a new deal with the 23-year-old.

Whilst United fans may be getting excited thinking about the possibility of snatching another key-man from Turin, the chances of a deal happening are still unlikely as contract talks will commence soon.

What was said?

Quoted by The SunDybala explained why his contract discussions with the Serie A leaders have been delayed:

“My agent has had to return to Argentina for the birth of his son. That means we will have to wait for a bit longer, but I remain optimistic, the renewal will come. It does not just depend on what I want, but we also have to listen to Juventus.”
