Despite reports of a setback in their bid to sign Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala earlier in the week, Manchester United are still convinced a deal can be struck for the highly-rated Argentine superstar.

Reports surfaced earlier in the week that Juventus has turned down an offer of €79 million plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan for Paulo Dybala as it is said to fall well short of their valuation.

Also, it has been reported that the Turin club’s response to united intermediaries was Dybala will not be sold for a fee of less than €150 million.

Now reports in the UK say Manchester United are leading the hunt for the talented forward and are still confident they will get their man even after seeing their first bid immediately rejected.

Jose Mourinho is believed to have identified Dybala for the No. 10 role at the club and has pinpointed him as their major target rather than Antoinne Griezmann.

The Manchester club has a few things going for them as they look to strike a secret deal with Dybala having close relationships with United’s Javier Ribalta – who was previously Head Scout at Juventus – as well as Paul Pogba as they both played together in Turin and the Frenchman is could play a role in luring the star man to the club.

Dybala’s started the season in sublime fashion, his form has since tailed off as the season got older but he has still contributed 15 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions.
