Manchester United have reportedly had an opening offer for Argentina international forward Paulo Dybala turned down, according to The Sun.
The Premier League side, who currently sit second in the standings, but 15 points adrift of leaders and arch rivals Manchester City, have been strongly linked with a mega money move for the Juventus star during next month’s transfer window.
The 24-year-old, who has 12 international caps for his country, has scored 15 goals and provided four assists in 25 appearances in all competitions for the defending Serie A champions so far this season.
Dybala, who joined Juve back in June 2015, following his reported €32m move from Italian rivals Palermo, has netted 57 times in 119 games overall for the club.
The report claims Juventus have rejected an offer worth £70m, plus midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, for the Argentine’s services.
After ending their interest in Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has identified Dybala as United’s top January transfer target, with Juve understood to be after £86m for their prized player.
