Manchester Utd blow with targets Icardi and Dybala
MAN UNITED have reportedly been knocked back in their bid to lure Mauro Icardi and Dybala to Old Trafford in the summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understood to be desperate to bolster his attack at the end of the season as he targets a Premier League title tilt in his first full season in control.
The Red Devils were quoted £68million by Inter Milan C.F in March for the signing of Argentinian international Mauro Icardi.
And they have also been linked with a £120m move for the ex-Sampdoria striker’s compatriot Paulo Dybala – who has netted 10 goals in 39 games for Juventus .F.C this campaign.
In any case, United hope to have been managed a blow in their mission to capture the pair, with agent Giovanni Branchini revealing the duo could be used in a swap deal between Inter and the Old Lady.
Speaking to Tuttosport, he said: « Dybala? Yes, I think his farewell is conceivable this time.
« I don’t think he is upbeat and I don’t think Juve are happy this season.
« The exchange with Icardi is not a fantasy because everyone would have the opportunity to profit by a trade of this sort. »
Icardi was stripped of the captaincy at the San Siro in February following a contract dispute between his significant other and operator Wanda and the Nerazzurri.
