Manchester United have reportedly increase their interest in Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, who is likely will depart in the upcoming transfer market.

The 24-year-old has caught the interest of many Europe’s top clubs following a string of impressive works for The Old Lady, including scoring 18 goals and making 5 assists in 31 Serie A appearances so far.

The Red Devils are among the teams frequently linked with La Joya, in defiance of manager Mourinho previously suggesting that he will not sign any new players this summer.

Italian TV station Rai Sport claims that Dybala is now recognizing the possibility of leaving Turin at the end of the season due to rising pressure between himself and the club.

After all, should United go in for the striker then they would likely face difficulties from other clubs, including free-spending Paris Saint-Germain among the clubs also credited with an interest.

French giant has reportedly made Paulo Dybala as the major replacement for Brazilian superstar Neymar who is set to leave the club for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Former Palermo player excellently fits in Manchester United style of play as he has strengths: key passes, long shots and creating indirect set-piece threat.
