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
