PAULO DYBALA’S move to Manchester United is under serious doubts after opening talks over wages.
The Juventus forward’s representatives have discussed personal terms ahead of a swap deal for Romelu Lukaku – but are some way off agreeing on salary.
Lukaku has now travelled from London to Manchester this morning with the deal not completed and could even report for training this morning at United’s Carrington HQ.
SunSport revealed at the weekend that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted Lukaku’s deal sorted by TODAY to leave enough time to land a replacement.
Juve moved ahead of Inter Milan for the 26-year-old and were willing to offer Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and cash for the Belgium international.
But the move hinges on Dybala agreeing to move to a Manchester United team that have dropped into the Europa League.
Players at United suffered a drop in wages of up to 25 per cent when they failed to stay in the Champions League.
But Dybala’s demands are with no reductions for playing in the second-tier tournament.
The Argentina forward, 25, is happy to stay at the Italian champions and only a huge pay-rise would persuade him to leave.
The deadlock could allow Inter Milan to make a desperate final move as they have seen a £54million rejected and are willing to offer £65m.
The boss said: “I’ve said before in press conferences that we need to be more clinical. That’s where you win games.
“It’s not a concern but it’s something we’re going to have to improve on.”
