Manchester United 'Pull Plug' On Paulo Dybala Transfer

Manchester United have reportedly 'pulled the plug' on a deal for Juventus' Paulo Dybala.

The Reds have been in talks to sign the Argentine forward, but, according to Telegraph, United have decided to pull the plug on a potential swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku due to his reluctance to leave Juventus.

His huge wage demands, and agents' fees have also deterred United from striking a deal with Juventus.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's determined to bring in players who're fully committed to being part of United's long-term project.

United had agreed personal terms with Mario Mandzukic, but it remains to be seen what happens with the Croatian striker.

And, finally, United pulling the plug on Dybala effectively ends Lukaku's hopes of a summer move to Juventus. Inter Milan have also publicly courted the Belgium striker with Antonio Conte keen on snapping him up.

"I like this player [Lukaku]. I consider him an important player for us to have a good improvement," the Italian coach said about his pursuit of Lukaku.

Dybala, meanwhile, will undergo a routine medical and return to his club for training.

Solskjær remains in the market for new talent following the arrivals of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. They continue to be linked with Sporting CP's Bruno Fernandes, who's also attracting interest from Tottenham.

United begin their Premier League campaign at home to Chelsea on August 11.
