Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has reportedly asked influential midfielder, Paul Pogba to help him convince Juventus superstar, Paulo Dybala to sign for the Red Devils in the winter transfer window with Romelu Lukaku and veteran striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic out injured.
The pair are believed to be very good friends while the Frenchman was still playing for the Old Lady and could play a major role in the Argentine forward making a switch to Old Trafford in the summer.
Report from English publication the Dailystar understands the Argentine international is now a primary target for Jose Mourinho in the winter transfer window having cooled interest in failed summer target Antoine Griezmann who is now favorite to join Catalan giants Barcelona this month.
According to reports making the rounds the Argentine attacking midfielder is believed to available for a fee in the region of £90 million but the Serie A giants won’t entertain any deal for the former Palermo man until the end of the season as they are not ready to lose their most prized asset mid-way through the season.
The 24-year-old has grown into one of the finest forwards in Europe since he joined Juventus in the summer of 2015 for a reported fee of €40 million from Italian side Palermo in the summer of 2015.
He is known for his pace, versatility, creativity, dribbling, link-up play, balance, vision, passing and his finishing.
Paulo Dybala is often deployed as a striker but can also play either as an attacking midfielder or an inverted winger and he has featured in 26 games for the Old Lady across all competitions scoring 17 goals and providing 3 assists.
Given his age and ability he would be a quality addition to the Red Devils and many United faithfuls will be hoping Paul Pogba can play a key role in bringing the Argentine just like he did with Romelu Lukaku in the summer.
