According to an exclusive report covered by Daily Star, Mourinho is confident of securing a 60 million pounds deal ($80million) to sign the former Palermo star in the summer transfer window.

The British source have mentioned that the likes of Bayern Munich and Barca are also interested in signing the versatile playmaker but the Old Trafford club are leading the race to lure the 24-year-old star after appointing Ribalta (Juve’s former head of scouting) as their head scout in the summer.

Dybala can play anywhere in the attacking third but naturally he is a secondary striker. In the current campaign, he has so far scored 15 goals and provided 4 assists in 25 outings for the Italian champions.

Few days back, we covered a report (via Diario Gol) claiming that Paulo wants to earn more than what he is currently getting and even Real Madrid want to hire his services.
