The January transfer window is going to be a pretty busy one for Premier League teams.

With Manchester City running away with the title, the chasing pack will be desperate to acquire some fresh talent in order to try and bridge the enormous gap.

Liverpool have already instigated the chaos by agreeing a mammoth £75m fee with Southampton for Virgil van Dijk.

Manchester United - who are 15 points behind City - are in desperate need of some spending, particularly after their recent poor run of form.

It is known that Jose Mourinho is desperately after a world-class creator behind Romelu Lukaku, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata simply not earning the manager's trust.

Well, he may now have an answer, with United now told they can have one of Europe's best for £86m.

The man in question? Juventus' Paulo Dybala and according to The Sun, that is the price the Italian giants have set any interested parties.


And, United have already seen a bid turned down for the Argentine forward, offering £70m and Mkhitaryan.


Apparently, the Bianconeri are not interested in the Armenian International, which pretty much sums up how far his stock has fallen since his move to Old Trafford.

Dybala himself has had a torrid time of late after a blistering start to the season, with Juve now not so against offloading him due to his poor attitude off the field.

He's been left on the bench the last few games, with his brother apparently trying to engineer a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

But, United appear to now be the frontrunners for his coveted signature, with his relationship with Paul Pogba playing a huge part.

"I must admit I miss Dani Alves and Pogba. Alves has an amazing vision and is really self-confident, he is one of the best players I've ever seen. Pogba is a friend of mine, we were on very good terms on and off the pitch," Dybala told France Football.

"I can't promise I will stay at Juventus forever. It does not depend on me but I don't even want to say that this will be my last season here. I want to win everything now, football is strange you never really know what will happen in the future."

It would be some statement, one that would dwarf Liverpool's signing of Van Dijk.
