Juventus will reportedly offer Paulo Dybala to Manchester United as part of a deal that would see Paul Pogba move the other way.
The Mirror report Juve will use Dybala as a makeweight in a deal worth up to £150m – and it could be completed as early as January, according to the report.
Dybala is valued at £100m, but the 24-year-old has struggled for games since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer and is said to be considering his options if his current situation continues.
Pogba, meanwhile, has been linked with a return to Juventus – two years after leaving for £89m. There have been various reports of an unhappy relationship with Jose Mourinho and the player has not ruled out moving the club.
Any deal would be a swap-plus-money arrangement, but if the £150m figure is to be believed then that would value Pogba at just £50m – considerably less than the fee paid for him in 2016.
Elsewhere, there are reports United could move for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil in January.
The Express say Mourinho is monitoring the former-German international’s situation at Arsenal where he has reportedly been told to justify his £350,000-a-week salary.
Although Ozil has denied a rift with new manager Unai Emery, United will follow the coming months with interest and may be persuaded to swoop if they think a deal can be done in the January transfer window.
If Pogba was to leave, then Ozil would fill the gap left in midfield by the Frenchman.
