According to various sources in Italy, Manchester United are in the early stages of talks with Argentinian forward Paul Dybala. 

It seems that a possible swap deal with disgruntled forward Romelu Lukaku could be on the cards, but Dybala isn't set on leaving Juventus just yet.

Dybala's agent is currently in London which has added fuel to the fire over a possible transfer between the teams.

Last year Dybala scored 10 goals in total for Juve which was down from his best season the year before where he scored 26.

With the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Argentine has found it hard to build on the momentum of previous seasons.

Dybala is due to meet with new Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri later this week to seek clarification over where he stands with the club.

In terms of the price tag for the Argentinian, Juve values him at around €87m.

Manchester United recently rejected a €60m offer from Inter for Lukaku but it looks like a swap deal with Juventus could be on the cards.

Juve are interested in signing the Belgian forward and are willing to let Dybala go.

Dybala would be United's third signing of the summer after already signing right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for €53m and winger Daniel James from Swansea for €16m.

This season will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first full season as United manager after they finished sixth place last year.

The signing of Dybala would be a huge coup for United and it would give them the true number 9 that they've been missing for the past few years.

Manchester United are reportedly close to signing Harry Maguire from Leicester, and Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon.
