According to a report from Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are interested in signing Paulo Dybala of AS Roma at the end of this season. It was also mentioned in this report that his contract with the Italian club has a release clause of €12 million which for Erik Ten Hag is a cheaper alternative to bolster their attack compared to other options in the transfer market.
Dybala’s Impressive Campaign With Roma So Far This Season
Dybala has had a brilliant campaign with Roma so far as he has been responsible for putting some influential displays being the focal point of Jose Mourinho’s attack. He has found the back of the net on twelve occasions and created six assists over 23 appearances for the Italian outfit across multiple competitions this season.
The Laguna Larga-born talent has been a consistent and reliable performer for them in the attacking third after averaging 2.5 shots, 2.3 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per game in Serie A.
He has also been tidy with his ball distribution after completing 80.9% of his attempted passes in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Stadio Olimpico runs out in the summer of 2025. Hence, activating his release clause could be a viable option for the Red Devils if they manage to convince Dybala on personal terms.
Should Erik Ten Hag Bring Him To Manchester United?
Dybala excels at generating a yard of space for himself to get a few shots in on goal and is extremely calm when finishing in front of the opponent’s goal. The Argentine sensation has got the vision to find his teammates with outstanding passes to create brilliant plays down the middle. Furthermore, Dybala can dribble the ball like no other and has the pace and quickness to get past defenders from tight areas.
The 28-year-old would no doubt bring more creativity and inject more goals to Erik Ten Hag’s frontline at Old Trafford. He would serve as a shrewd acquisition for them this summer while significantly bolstering their attack.
This makes him a brilliant option to pursue ahead of the new campaign. The Argentina international would be a decent fit for the Red Devils as a player with such calibre would only help them compete for some major honours over the coming season. Ten Hag would be wise to bring him over ahead of the next season.
