Although Paulo Dybala rejected Manchester United, he’s still on the market and Juventus could start talks with Paris Saint-Germain or Inter.
Multiple sources in England and Italy stated this evening that the exchange deal between Romelu Lukaku and Dybala is dead in the water.
The Argentine made it clear he was not enthusiastic about the transfer to Old Trafford and Manchester United in turn decided it was not worth trying to convince someone who had so many doubts.
However, that does not necessarily mean Dybala will remain in Turin, as he is said to be deeply hurt by Juve’s attempts to push him into this move.
He could well still accept a transfer to a club in the Champions League or one he considers more suited to his style of football.
The Corriere dello Sport points towards Paris Saint-Germain, unsurprising considering the Ligue 1 giants have long been linked with the 25-year-old and director Leonardo is an admirer of La Joya.
Another alternative for Dybala would be Inter in a swap for Mauro Icardi, a proposal that has been floating around since the start of the summer.
Inter have frozen Icardi out and he is rejecting transfers to Napoli and Roma because his heart is set on Juventus.
Nerazzurri director Beppe Marotta is the man who first brought Dybala to Juventus from Palermo and would relish a reunion.
If it were to happen, this exchange would be towards the very end of the transfer window, which in Serie A doesn’t close until September 2.
