Paul Pogba has been rumoured to be on his way out of Manchester United for what seems like a lifetime now. I’m sure you’re just as bored as I am to see his name in the newspapers each and every day.
But, if reports are to be believed, then these rumours could soon be put to bed (let’s hope so, anyway). However, it might not be the news Manchester United fans want to hear.
According to a report from Tuttosport, Juventus remain adamant they want to re-sign the French midfielder, who enjoyed plenty of success at the Old Lady. But United will get some return, with Paulo Dybala rumoured to be part of the swap deal.
This is great for Manchester United

Manchester United would be silly not to accept this deal for it would kill two birds with one stone. Granted, losing Pogba is never going to be easy but if Solskjaer is serious about mounting a rebuild, he cannot hold onto sentimentality; you have to be cruel to be kind. Besides, it’s not like they will be losing out if they are gaining Dybala in return.
The Red Devils have been chasing Dybala for as long as Juve have been chasing Pogba. Therefore, I do struggle to see why this move hasn’t materialised before but I guess there’s more to consider than just practical factors.
Dybala has played alongside the two greatest players of all time, Lionel Messi at international level and Cristiano Ronaldo at club level. Therefore, he would be able to bring some expertise and knowhow to the Old Trafford camp. He is also playing in the prime stages of his career, so he will be keen to win some more silverware in the English top flight.
Do you think this swap deal between Manchester United and Juventus will go ahead or is it merely paper talk?
