£80m Rated South American Ace Issues Wage Demand As United Move Closer To Finalising Deal

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has asked for €10m a year in order to make a switch to Manchester United, according to reports in the UK.

The Red Devils and Juve have agreed a straight swap deal for Romelu Lukaku with the Belgian having already given his go-ahead to a move to Turin.

Dybala’s wage demands are not excessive as the Argentinian is asking for the equivalent of £176,000 a week so the finances will not be a problem.

It all comes down to whether the Argentine is keen on a switch to Old Trafford. He clearly has no future at Juventus with the Bianconeri having effectively offered him up for £80m, which is United’s value for Lukaku.

The 25-year-old generally plays as a number 10 and could prove an excellent foil for United’s front three. He can also be employed from the right-hand side, or as a number nine if needed, which may also make him a good addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
