Paulo Dybala would be a magical Manchester United signing, Ray Wilkins has claimed.

The Argentina international has been touted as a potential signing for the Red Devils in the summer transfer window.

The Juventus striker has been dubbed the next Lionel Messi thanks to his impressive performances in Serie A.

Dybala has scored 12 goals and has made three assists in 15 appearances in the Italian top flight.

The 24-year-old has failed to open his account in the Champions League in the 2017-18 season so far.

The South American has been linked with Manchester United in recent months to bolster Jose Mourinho’s attack.

Manchester United have also been linked with a move to sign Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann.

Former Red Devils midfielder Wilkins believes Dybala would be a brilliant addition to the Manchester United side.

“If United sign him, good grief City will have to watch out,” Wilkins told sportingbet.

“He’s one of those skilful South American players that will light up the Premier League. If I was a head of scouting for a top six club, I would tell them to go to South America to scout small, skilful centre-forwards because these guys are becoming world class players – like Dybala.

“He’s a magical footballer, works hard on and off the pitch and would be a credit to the Premier League.”

Dybala has scored 42 goals in 80 games in three seasons in Serie A since his move to Juventus from Palermo in 2014.
