Manchester United are in talks with Juventus over a deal to swap Romelu Lukaku for Paulo Dybala, it emerged last night.
Juventus have jumped in after negotiations between United and Inter Milan over the Belgium striker stalled.
United remain in contact with Inter after rejecting an opening bid of £54million, but they are looking for a transfer fee closer to £80m.

That is similar to Juve’s valuation of Dybala, raising the prospect of a player exchange between the two clubs.
While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were preparing for a pre-season friendly against Kristiansund in Oslo on Tuesday, Dybala’s agent and brother Mariano flew into London for talks with United bosses.
Asked after a 1-0 win in Norway about the possibility of signing the 25-year-old Argentine forward, Solskjaer said: ‘I’m not here to talk about any rumours or speculation about other team’s players. But, of course, we’re working on one or two cases.
