Manchester United was boosted in the reported pursuit of Juventus sensation, Paulo Dybala after the Argentina international stated that he misses Paul Pogba in Turin. Both men played together for the Old Lady before the France international made a return to Old Trafford to join Manchester United.
Dybala has been sensational for the Bianconeri this season, adding more goals to his creativity and could be set for a summer switch to our great club. The former Palermo man has no release clause in his contract, meaning that the Italian club hold all the aces of a future transfer.
Juventus have been rocked after Dybala admitted that he doesn’t know what his future at the Juventus stadium holds. Dybala is one of the world’s best players and would fit the bill for a left-footed player that our manager, Jose Mourinho craves badly.
The Manchester United fans are clamouring for the signature of Dybala, as they fancy the prospect of having him form a lethal partnership with Pogba. Here’s what they have been saying on popular social media platform, Twitter:
United HAVE to sign Dybala or Griezmann in the summer. Type of player we’re crying out for. #mufc

Dybala should be the main transfer target for next summer and Griezmann if that fails #mufc

Pogba wished Dybala happy birthday and wrote #AgentP beneath it. It's got Griezmann rattled. He switched from talking about Barcelona to United pretty quickly ?

The Portuguese tactician wants a left footer in our attack to add more balance to the side and a number of players have been mentioned, though Dybala tops the lot. At 24, he has a lot of potential to become one of the best players of his generation and his relationship with Pogba is an added plus to us in the pursuit of his signature.
Pogba, 24, was responsible for convincing Romelu Lukaku to join Manchester United rather than Chelsea, despite the Premier League champions looking like favourites to sign him.
Manager, Jose Mourinho is looking to add stardust to his attack in a bid to compete with Manchester City while also looking at winning The Champion League.
Dybala, 24, is the undisputed star of Juventus, wearing the revered no 10 jersey. Pogba has looked the part this season after a difficult campaign last season, as he has registered 3 goals and 6 assists in just 13 matches.
Pogba was quoted as saying in September: “I call Dybala ‘Square R2’. That’s the combination you press on PlayStation to do a turn and shot. He always scores like that.“Has he surprised me? No, because I always said he was a phenomenon. To do what he has done, playing for Juve, is something phenomenal.”
Dybala is a player that can play as a number 10 and even further forward as a striker. He is known for his dribbling, creativity, setpiece prowess and finishing. He joined Juventus from Palermo in 2025 and has scored 56 goals in 116 matches,. He will elevate our attack to another level if signed.
