Man Utd Step Up Efforts To Sign Arsenal And Chelsea Target Dubbed 'New Messi'
Manchester United will be looking to make yet more marquee signings this summer and Paolo Dybala of Palermo is one of the hottest properties in world football right now. According to Fichajes.net (in Spanish), United are ready to offer €40million (£28.9million) bid for the 21-year-old as they look to get their foot in the door early with Europe's elite circling.
Two other English clubs heavily linked with Dybala are Arsenal and Chelsea, however Manchester United look to be stepping up their efforts in an attempt to blow the pair out of the water.
The Argentinian forward has scored 12 goals and assisted 8 times in 29 games this season and is widely regarded as the next big thing, some referring to him as the 'new Messi'. Ok, it's easy to irrationally dub someone because they're having a good year, but this guy is the real deal. Pace, trickery, grit and finishing that is quite frankly second to none, make him a near complete player, yet he still has room for improvement.
Some recent reports suggested that Dybala would prefer to stay in Italy and that Juventus would be the obvious destination if that were the case. However, there are very few players that can resist the allure of the Premier League and Manchester United - a club steeped in rich history with a world renowned reputation.
A fresh, young and potentially world class forward is exactly what Manchester United need, especially considering their misfiring and ageing strike force. Fans will be hoping the club can assert themselves in the market as they have done in the past and secure a deal for the wonderfully talented Dybala.
