• Paulo Dybala is available for free this summer
  • He spent seven seasons at Juventus
  • Dybala scored 115 goals for the Serie A side

Manchester United are reportedly planning to battle it out with Arsenal to secure Argentina forward Paulo Dybala's signature.

Dybala's contract with Juventus has ended and the Argentinean forward is available as a free agent. The two Premier League rival clubs have contacted Dybala's agent enquiring about his transfer situation in the summer window, reported FC Inter News.

The 28-year-old forward, who previously played for Palermo, has not been at the best of his forms. He scored 15 goals and provided six assists in 39 appearances for Juventus last season in all competitions. Dybala still is a fine talent and securing him for free would be a wonderful move.

While Arsenal need more quality in attack and an ideal replacement for Nicolas Pepe, Manchester United want to further strengthen their attack that currently includes under-performing players like Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Dybala is looking to secure a deal that would see him earn weekly wages of around $242,000, which is well within Manchester United's reach, according to Teamtalk.

Dybala's addition to the Red Devils will only strengthen Erik ten Hag's attack ahead of the 2022-23 season. It has been reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has asked the Old Trafford club to make a few top signings as soon as possible in the ongoing summer window. Moreover, Ronaldo is well aware of Dybala's game as the two played together at Juventus between 2018 and 2021.

The Argentinian had a great run in the Juventus shirt as he helped them win many trophies, including five league titles. However, the Turin side now has not won the Serie A trophy for two straight seasons, with AC Milan claiming the title last campaign.

Dybala was not even in the Argentina squad that won the Copa America last year in Brazil. The Juventus forward, who spent seven seasons at Allianz Stadium, netted 115 goals and 48 assists in 293 competitive appearances for the Italian club.
