Manchester United are prepared to meet Juventus’ valuation of Paulo Dybala this summer, according to reports in the Italian media.

Italian outlet Tuttosport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils are prepared to spend big to get a deal done for the 25-year-old this summer.

Reports earlier this week suggested that Juventus were willing to sell Dybala this summer if their asking price of around £70m to £90m is met.

The same story says that Manchester United are now “optimistic” of securing a deal for the Argentine international and they are prepared to make a significant investment to get the deal done.

According to the article, Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is one of the main driving forces behind Manchester United’s interest in signing the attacker.

The attacking midfielder scored five goals and made four assists in 30 Serie A games for the Italian side last season.

Manchester United have so far only made two new signings this summer after having tied up deals for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

The Red Devils are looking to break back into the top four this term after they finished sixth and without a trophy last season.
