Manchester United are reportedly looking at the prospect of signing Juventus’ Paulo Dybala in a straight-exchange deal for midfielder Paul Pogba. Pogba has generated doubts over his United future since the summer and it is suggested that he could pursue a return to Turin at the turn of the year.
According to Calciomercato, the Red Devils are open to the option of selling Pogba to the Serie A holders in the near future and Mourinho could be willing to sign Dybala in a potential swap agreement.
Pogba has been largely inconsistent with his showing for United since rejoining them from Juventus in the summer of 2016 and of late, he has created doubts over his future by refusing to rule out a future move away from Old Trafford.
As such, it appears that United could sanction the player’s return to the Bianconeri, though they are said to want Dybala in exchange amid his difficult situation with the Italian champions.
Dybala enjoyed a fruitful 2017/18 season whereby he contributed a career-high tally of 26 goals across all competitions but he has yet to get off the mark this term amid his reduced gametime.
The former Palermo man has been restricted to just two appearances since the start of the season and this has largely come about with summer signing Cristiano Ronaldo commanding a regular role ahead of him.
Aside from United, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all said to be monitoring the Argentine forward but Calciomercato suggests that the Bianconeri could be tempted by the Red Devils’ offer which would witness them re-sign former favourite Pogba.
Regardless of the speculation, Pogba remains a United player at present and he is currently preparing to return for club duty after featuring for France in the Nations League games against Germany and the Netherlands respectively.
