JUVENTUS are ready to offer Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro to Manchester United in a bid to steal a march on Real Madrid in the race to land Paul Pogba.
The controversial French midfielder is set to quit Old Trafford for a second time this summer after struggling for much of last season.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is ready to match United’s £120 million valuation of the World Cup winner but he might need to offload Gareth Bale before he can move.
That could open the door for Juventus who despite struggling to find that kind of money do have one major advantage.
Manchester United have expressed an interest in signing Argentinean striker Dybala, 25, and Brazilian left wing back Sandro, 28, a long-time target of Chelsea.
And they are ready to offer both players in a mega swap deal for Pogba who won four successive Serie A titles with Juve before his record £94.5m return to United.
Dybala who is also attracting the interest of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool has struggled to hold down a regular place in the Juventus side this season.
And he would be a more than ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku who tops the wanted list of former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte if he takes over at Inter Milan.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told the board that he wants all of their summer business concluded by July 1.
Having missed out on Champions League football for next year, there is plenty of ground that needs to be made up on the top four, particularly champions Manchester City and arch-rivals Liverpool.
Solskjaer said: “We’re going to sit down and go through all the plans.
“And we’ll be ready when 1 July comes. There will be no excuses.
“You never get a break from football. You always think about it.
“Even back home in Norway, I’m watching games analysing what went wrong, what went well.”
Solskjaer has warned his United players they must be fitter if they are to challenge for the title next season.
It’s claimed the United boss was shocked at his side’s fitness levels after replacing Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer is willing to axe any player he feels isn’t fit enough to go on their pre-season tour.
