Man Utd want to sign Dybala after ‘specific request’ from Ten Hag

Manchester United are interested in signing Roma attacker Paulo Dybala following a specific request from manager Erik ten Hag, according to Il Messaggero.

The Red Devils have been linked with multiple forwards this summer and Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee appears to be the priority target for the club’s hierarchy.

However, the Dutchman has yet to decide on his future. Amidst this, Il Messaggero (via TuttoMercatoWeb) claim that United are eyeing a deal for Dybala.

Dybala will enter the final year of his contract next month. He has a release clause worth £10 million, which becomes active from July onwards.

Dybala would be a superb bargain signing

The Argentine has played most of his career from the second striker position, but he has also found success operating from the right wing during his time at Roma.

The World Cup winner scored 16 goals and provided ten assists across all competitions this season, despite missing ten games with multiple niggles.

Dybala would be a superb cost-effective signing for the price mentioned. His wages are also reasonable at £114,000 per week and should not be a burden.

The big question is whether Dybala would consider a move to the Premier League. His agent could be behind the speculation and may be eyeing fresh contract talks.

Dybala has been one of Roma’s most influential players in the final third and it would be no surprise if the Giallorossi persuade him to stay with a new long-term contract.
