Premier League clubs Manchester United and Newcastle United are sniffing around AS Roma’s Paulo Dybala, according to Calciomercato.
They could sign the player for only €12 million this summer, his release clause for clubs outside Italy. Serie A clubs must pay €20m to sign the 29-year-old.
Dybala’s three-year deal expires in 2025, but he has an affordable release clause rousing the interest of several clubs.
He recently expressed doubts about continuing his journey with Roma only months after joining them.
AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho reportedly convinced him to join the club. With Mourinho set to leave this summer, Dybala could be looking at moving too.
He also wants to see if they qualify for the Champions League. If Roma keep Mourinho and qualify for the CL, Dybala’s lawyers will activate an automatic renewal that will take his salary from €4m to €6m.
Dybala has been Roma’s talisman following his departure from Juventus as a free agent, helping them to sit in fourth place in Serie A.
He has scored eight goals and assisted six in 18 appearances in Serie A this season. He is the team’s leading scorer, with Tammy Abraham struggling to convert chances into goals.
Dybala has been just as prolific in the Europa League, scoring twice in three games.
His resurgence this season attracted the interest of Newcastle United, who could use the Argentine international with Miguel Almiron on the right side of their attack.
The Magpies targeted Dybala last summer ahead of his Roma move, and they could return at the end of the season.
Man United manager Erik ten Hag could also use Dybala with Antony struggling to influence games.
He has been linked to the Red Devils before. With the player eyeing a departure, Old Trafford could be an option.
