Argentine star speaks on his future amid Manchester United transfer link
Argentina international Paulo Dybala has indicated that he would prefer to continue with Juventus next season amid the speculation interested from Manchester United. A recent report suggested that the Red Devils could seek to swoop for the attacker this summer following a difficult season by his standards across all competitions.
However, Dybala does not seem to hold any interest in parting ways with the Bianconeri and speaking to Mediaset, he has revealed that the same message has been communicated to chief Fabio Paratici, he said: “I talked to the club and Fabio Paratici and they know what I think. I want to stay at Juventus again next year, I want to continue playing here”.
United can certainly do with the services of Dybala next season, considering they have gone through a difficult campaign where they managed only a sixth-place finish in the Premier League. The lack of Champions League football would no doubt hamper their quest to land the Argentine and the recent comments from the player suggest that there is no probability of the same happening.
Irrespective of this, United are expected to step up the pursuit for new signings this summer and reports indicate that the focus could lie on the recruitment of young players with a long-term future behind them. Swansea City’s Daniel James and Newcastle United’s Sean Longstaff have recently been linked with moves to Old Trafford and there remains a good chance of both players joining them during the transfer window.
United are deemed to have already agreed on a fee of around £15m for James but they have yet to sort out the same with Longstaff. The youngster only made his first-team debut for the Magpies in December but his performances thereafter have caught the attention of United scouts. Rafael Benitez’s side are said to be holding out for around £25m to part ways with their graduate.
