Man Utd to compete with Real Madrid for Serie A attacker

Man Utd to compete with Real Madrid for Serie A attacker

Dybala wanted by European giants

Manchester United and Real Madrid will reportedly go head-to-head in the pursuit of Juventus star Paulo Dybala next summer. The Argentine was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona last month, but the deal never materialised.

Dybala has netted 23 and 19 goals respectively in his previous two seasons at Juventus, and he now appears to have come on his own with 12 goals in just eight outings this term.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is keeping a close watch on the 23-year-old as he eyes a 'Galactico' signing in his ranks for next season.

However, they could potentially face competition from the Red Devils, who could be prepared to pay a club-record fee of £155m to prise him away from Turin.

Los Blancos have made an average start to their La Liga season, and they are already seven points behind Barcelona after six games into the campaign.

Meanwhile, United have been in the best form in years, and they are currently tied on points (16) with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
