United given hope in pursuit of Juventus star

According to The Daily Mirror, Manchester United’s hopes of signing Juventus striker Paolo Dybala have been given a boost by reports that the Argentine’s relationship with the Italian club has become strained.

Dybala is said to be high on Jose Mourinho’s list of summer transfer targets, and now news that he is unhappy at starting a number of recent matches from the bench, have raised hopes that he may be ready for a move away from Turin in the summer.

However, the 24-year old could join PSG instead, in the event that Neymar moves to Real Madrid, with rumours that the Spanish giants are ready to lure the Brazilian back to La Liga.

Dybala scored a stunning injury-time winner for Juventus on the weekend against Lazio, weaving his way past three defenders before shooting past goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha with just 30 seconds of the match left. That win took Juventus within a point of Napoli, and with a game in hand, at the top of Serie A, as the leaders were beaten 4 -2 at home by Roma.
