Manchester United and City set for battle in Dybala signing

Manchester United and Manchester City are among the clubs who want to land Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala in the summer. 

Dybala’s contract with Juventus runs out in the summer, leaving him able to sign on a free with a new club for next season.

The Manchester giants are chief among the set of Premier League sides who would like to bring the Argentine to England.

Dybala has hit 112 goals and 48 assists in 281 games for Juventus since joining from Palermo in 2015.

The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle also hold an interest in him.

However, according to 90min despite their openness to an England move Dybala and his entourage are somewhat hesitant on this, with each of the aforementioned clubs believing Dybala will sign an extension with Juventus.

Dybala, who can play as a striker or as a ’10’, has scored seven goals and got five assists in 20 Serie A games this season.
