Paulo Dybala Skips Juventus Checkup As Lukaku Agrees €9m Annual Contract


Paulo Dybala will not take a routine medical at Juventus on Friday and has not returned to their Continassa training headquarters as talk of a move away from Turin gathers pace. However, the player that Juventus want to swap Dybala for, Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, has agreed terms with the Bianconeri in a deal that will be worth €9 million (£8m/$10m) a year.
The Argentine forward, was due to speak to Maurizio Sarri on Thursday although that didn’t happen, while Mario Mandzukic has also been offered to Man Utd.

According to goal, another part of the puzzle for the sensational swap deal is Dybala’s wages in Manchester, with the Argentina international desiring a significant pay increase from his current €7.5m-per-year deal in Italy.

Dybala returned early from his holiday after the Copa America and arrived in Turin on Thursday. He was expected to hold crunch talks with Juve boss Maurizio Sarri but that ultimately didn’t happen.

Instead, the Argentine has extended his vacation until August 5, three days before the English transfer window closes.

Sources have also told Goal that Mario Mandzukic was offered to United during sporting director Fabio Paratici’s visit to London for talks over the Dybala and Lukaku deal, with Juve keen to get the Croatian off their wage bill.

It remains unlikely at this stage that United would be interested in bringing the 33-year-old to Old Trafford, however, despite the Serie A champions’ willingness to offload him to the Red Devils.

Both Dybala and Lukaku, meanwhile, were somewhat frozen out at their clubs last season.
