Manchester United are considering making a bid for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala this summer – but only if current striker Romelu Lukaku leaves, according to reports. 

United scouts have been impressed with Dybala for some time with his performances in Serie A and the Champions League.

The Sun claim that United have already sounded out their counterparts at Juventus about the possibility of a deal, and it seems that a bid of £120 million may be enough to get their man.

However, this bid may only happen if United sell Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has appeared to recapture his best form in the past couple of weeks with 4 goals in his last 2 games but there has been speculation that he may leave in the summer.

One potential destination for Lukaku could be Juventus. There has been rumoured interest in him from Turin for some time, so a player-plus-cash deal involving Dybala is not beyond the realms of possibility.

Other clubs in Serie A, notably Inter Milan, are also said to be interested in Lukaku. At 26, he is in the peak of his career so United would want to at least recoup the £75 million they paid Everton for him two years ago.
