Manchester United have conceded their chances of bringing Juventus star Paulo Dybala to Old Trafford.
The centre-forward has established himself as one of the deadliest strikers in Europe and Calcio Mercato report that the Argentine is ready to pen a new deal with the Italian giants.
Dybala’s agent, Pierpaolo Triulzi met Juventus manager Giuseppe Marotta to discuss a new deal for his client. The forward’s contract expires in the summer of 2020, but it is likely to be extended for a further year. A new deal could be completed in a matter of hours.
It’s another tough pill to swallow for Mourinho who has had little luck this transfer window.
The Red Devils have had no notable incomings, whilst first team players such as Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay have departed Old Trafford for Everton and Lyon respectively.
Mourinho has until Tuesday’s deadline if he wants to recruit reinforcements for United’s second half of the season.
