Juventus are reportedly ignoring Manchester United’s attempts to make an enquiry about the availability of their star striker.

Paulo Dybala is a player likely to feature at the top of every top European club’s shopping list next summer and Jose Mourinho has apparently decided that the Argentine is a better option than Antoine Griezmann to boost his front line.

Which is all well and good, but the Telegraph report that the Italian Champions are ignoring the correspondence, fearing that United’s intention is to prise the striker away in January.

Juventus are reluctant to agree to major departures whilst in the midst of a title race and this year the Italian league looks to be more competitive than it has been in recent years.

Dybala has scored 15 goals this season and has already been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
