Paulo Dybala has 'until MONDAY to tell Juventus that he wants to join Manchester United'

Paulo Dybala must inform Juventus that he wants to move to Manchester United by Monday if the transfer is to go ahead, according to reports in Italy.

The Argentine has been a target for the Red Devils for most of the summer but with Thursday's deadline for the Premier League transfer window looming, time is running out to get a deal done.

Italian daily newspaper Corriere dello Sport claims the Argentine must decide by Monday where his future lies, with a potential switch to Old Trafford one that involves Romelu Lukaku heading in the opposite direction.

It follows a week where Dybala met up with boss Maurizio Sarri and other Juve chiefs for talks before he was 'exiled from the first team and made to train alone'.

Complications remain over such a deal, with the 25-year-old not against staying with the Bianconeri and having reservations of moving to United given their inability to offer Champions League football this season.


In addition, United also have complications over the move as they have been left 'disgusted' by the request of Dybala's agent Jorge Antun for a huge personal cut, in the region of £13.7m.

Dybala was previously a star in the Juventus side but has struggled to make an impact since last summer's £100m arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

But, as exclusively revealed by Sportsmail, it is the former United forward who is now encouraging Dybala to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in a bid to become a champion.

United ended their pre-season campaign on a high by defeating AC Milan on penalties following a 2-2 draw in Cardiff on Saturday. But the club still have many transfer sagas to bring to a close before Thursday's deadline.

Harry Maguire is on the verge of completing his £80million move from Leicester City having been pictured at the club's Carrington training ground on Sunday, but the future of wantaway midfielder Paul Pogba is still up in the air.
