Patrice Evra is thought to have phoned Paulo Dybala to encourage the Juventus striker to move to Manchester United, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Manchester United are stepping up their efforts to sign the Argentina international this summer.

The same article states that the Red Devils have got Evra to call his former Juventus team-mate to discuss a potential switch to the 20-time English champions this summer.

According to the same story, Dybala and Evra have a good friendship that stretches back to their 18 months together in Turin, where they won the Serie A title together.

The report goes on to claim that Dybala and Paul Pogba are close friends following on from their time together at the Turin club.

Manchester United will be desperate to improve upon their sixth-placed finish in the Premier League table last season.

The Red Devils ended the 2018-19 campaign on a sour note after Manchester United lost 2-0 to relegated Cardiff City on the final day of the campaign.

Remarkably, Manchester United conceded more goals than Manchester City and Liverpool FC combined last term.

The 20-time English champions will start the new Premier League season with a clash against Chelsea FC at Old Trafford on Sunday 11 August.
