Manchester United’s new chase for Paulo Dybala is a rumour which has been gaining some strenght in the Italian media.

On Friday, newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport reported a ‘contact’ from the Red Devils, with the possibility of a concrete offer being made soon.

And it turns out that website Calcio Mercato brings some similar claims today, making it look like the Old Trafford side lead the race for the player.

They first say that Bayern Munich, PSG and Manchester United are all interested in him. Dybala is said not to be sure about his stay at Juventus, since it will depend on the importance offered to him this season. He’s still on vacation in Miami.

And it’s the Red Devils who have been in touch with his brother, Mariano. Now Calcio Mercato says the club asked for a direct contact with Juventus so they can make an official bid in the next few days.

Juventus’ stance is that Dybala is not for sale, but isn’t untransferable either. They would take €80m upfront for the player, as long as bonuses make it reach over €100m in total.

Calcio Mercato makes it clear that Juventus are still the most likely club for Dybala’s future, but still, this attempt from Manchester United could change things in Turin.
