Manchester United could sign out-of-favour Juventus forward Paulo Dybala as part of a deal to take Paul Pogba back to Turin, per FCInterNews.
With the 27-year-old approaching the final year of his contract at the Allianz Stadium, the reigning Serie A champions are looking to offload their struggling star this summer.
Having endured another injury-hit season, Dybala has netted just four goals in 17 outings for the Bianconeri.
Continuous physical setbacks accompanied by a lack of form have seen the Argentina international slip behind Dejan Kulusevski and Alvaro Morata in the pecking order.
Even before Andrea Pirlo replaced Maurizio Sarri in the dugout, the former Palermo man was close to leaving Juventus, with United and Tottenham Hotspur mooted as potential destinations.
Although the Italian manager opted to keep hold of Dybala last summer, the left-footed forward could be on the move this time around.
The Red Devils were in the running for the Argentine’s signature ahead of the 2020/21 season but refused to meet Juventus’ £52 million asking price.
Nothing has changed since as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains unwilling to fork out such a massive figure for an injury-prone player.
However, the Norwegian could welcome Dybala to Old Trafford in what would be a sensational swap deal involving United wantaway playmaker Pogba.
Heavily linked with a return to Serie A, the 28-year-old midfielder is open to reuniting with Juventus following an underwhelming spell in Manchester.
As is the case with Dybala, the Frenchman’s deal in the Premier League is due to expire in 2022, with no signs of a breakthrough in extension talks.
With virtually no room for manoeuvre and Mino Raiola working against them, the Red Devils are entertaining the idea of swapping the two superstars at the end of the season.
