Manchester United ‘struggling’ to convince Dybala to move to Old Trafford

Manchester United are ‘struggling’ to convince Paulo Dybala to join the club from Juventus.

Dybala is being ushered towards Old Trafford by the Italian champions, who have agreed a swap deal with Manchester United involving the Argentine and Romelu Lukaku.

United are believed to have held talks with the 25-year-old’s representatives in a bid to persuade the forward to join the club, however, talks are believed to have stalled and the deal is under threat.

According to the Independent, Dybala remains unconvinced that a move to United would be a ‘good step’ for his career, given the club’s absence from the Champions League.

Dybala is also believed to be demanding a deal worth a reported £350,000-a-week, a figure that would make him the second-highest paid player in the Premier League, and there is said to be a significant distance between the two parties at present.

The player has returned to Turin following his international commitments a the Copa America this summer, where he was due to hold talks with new manager Maurizio Sarri and sporting director Fabio Paratici regarding his future.

Dybala has indicated a desire to stay at the Serie A side, though Juventus need to offload players to fund their move for Lukaku and the club are hopeful a swap deal can be completed
