Man united manager ‘Personally requests’ the Signing of sensational £180,000-a-week Serie A forward



Man united manager ‘Personally requests’ the Signing of sensational £180,000-a-week Serie A forward

Manchester United are interested in AS Roma forward Paulo Dybala, whose release clause is €12 million (£10 million).

This summer, central defense is another top priority for United, as Jarrad Branthwaite has been the focus of a protracted drama.

Manchester United is interested in acquiring Paulo Dybala, a forward for AS Roma with a €12 million release clause.

Dybala enjoyed an exceptional 2023/24 season, scoring 16 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions for the Italian side as they secured a place in Europe for next season by finishing sixth.

This fruitful campaign has sparked interest in the Argentine, largely from other Italian clubs, according to reports.

However, according to Il Messaggero, via Sport Witness, United are among the interested parties, with Erik ten Hag particularly demanding that new ownership company INEOS make a move.

The Italian outlet suggest that the release clause for Serie A clubs is €12 million, thus placing United in pole position to land their man, if they can agree personal terms with the player.

After an illustrious spell at Juventus, where he scored over 100 goals in almost 300 appearances, Dybala left the Old Lady in 2022, joining Roma on a three-year deal.

The 30-year-old has continued to impress in Serie A, becoming the talisman of a side that has languished in the Europa League spots.

Now, with just a year left on his current deal with I Giallorossi, a return to one of Italy’s clubs regularly competing for the title, or a move away from the country, are both on the cards. Whilst entering the latter stages of his career, at just €12 million, United may feel Dybala is worth this low-risk investment.

The versatile forward would add experience and immense technical quality to a United side that looked bereft of some of these elements last season, and the prospect of his arrival at Old Trafford has been described as ‘mouthwatering’.

However, Voce Giallo Rossa suggest that Dybala’s significant wage demands may present a stumbling block in negotiations over a potential move. Dybala reportedly earns around £180,000-a-week at Roma.
