Paulo Dybala’s former club president has urged him to make the move to Manchester United.
The Times reports talks are ongoing over a potential swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku.
In an interview with Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, Guglielmo Miccichè has urged Dybala to take on the new challenge.
Dybala starred at Palermo between 2012 and 2015 before earning a big money move to Juventus.
Miccichè, who worked under owner Mauro Zamparini, said: “We are talking about two top level clubs, but in a similar operation, for me, Manchester United would be better than Juventus.
“For him it would be a great challenge. But for me Dybala can make the most of it in any context, given his technical qualities.
“He is still a young player, brilliant, technical and able to score goals. In England the marking is less tight and the tactics much more marginal compared to Italy, for this I think he could do very well.”
Asked about Dybala’s value, he added: “What I can say is that I, like Dybala, wouldn’t sell him even for all the gold in the world.”
Luckily for United, Juventus are blessed with riches and have become attached to Cristiano Ronaldo as their lead attacker.
They suddenly appear determined to land Romelu Lukaku at Dybala’s expense, which works in our favour.
The big hitch holding the deal up at present is Dybala, who is weighing up his options.
Lets hope he comes to a quick decision and follows his former boss’ advice.
