Juve's Joya short-lived

Paulo Dybala arrived in a blaze of glory and certainly had some highlights, but Elio Salerno feels La Joya never quite delivered on his Juventus promise.

Rewind to June 4, 2015 where a baby-faced Paulo Dybala was in the process of completing his dream move to Italian champions Juventus from mid-table Serie A side Palermo. The transfer fee was sizeable for the then 21-year-old Argentine starlet, €32m payable over four years with potential for a further €8m in bonuses to be included.

Inter are ready to make another new offer for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, as Paulo Dybala keeps Juventus waiting.

According to the Corriere della Sera newspaper, the Nerazzurri will have one last-ditch bid on Monday, assuming Juve haven’t been able to seal the deal by then.

While Juventus are proposing an exchange with Dybala, the Argentina international is still unsure of the move and trying to postpone a decision until he has met with Coach Maurizio Sarri.

More problems for Man Utd and Dybala?

Manchester United reportedly offered close to Paulo Dybala’s wage demands, but the Juventus striker’s image rights are a problem.

The two clubs are in full agreement and Romelu Lukaku has worked out personal terms with the Bianconeri, so the only thing holding up this transfer is Dybala.

According to Sportitalia and the Corriere dello Sport, Manchester United have proposed €11m per year plus bonuses, which is very close to the €12m plus add-ons demand.

Mandzukic to Man Utd for €10-15m

Manchester United are in advanced talks for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, it’s reported, with a deal worth €10-15m.

The 33-year-old Croatia international was discussed during negotiations to swap Paulo Dybala with Romelu Lukaku, but is believed to be separate from that transfer.

According to Tuttosport, Manchester United will end up paying €10-15m for the centre-forward.

He only extended his contract in April and is tied down to Juve until June 2021, but no longer part of new Coach Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
