Manchester United transfer news: Dybala moves closer to Old Trafford, Willian attracts Mourinho's mind and more - 22nd November 2017
Dybala likely to be United's next number 10
Juventus star Paulo Dybala is one of the six big-name signings Manchester United are expected to make in next 12 months, reports Daily Star.
The report favours Dybala as a strong possibility after the Argentine striker revealed his close friendship with Paul Pogba and admitted missing their playing days at Juventus.
Pogba has been known to lure big-name players to Old Trafford in the past with Romelu Lukaku and Antoine Griezmann being the two examples.
While Lukaku ended up signing for United, Griezmann's move was halted due to Atletico Madrid's transfer ban. Daily Star reckons that United's next big target is Dybala and the transfer could happen next summer.
Dybala's recent transformation to the number 10 role would suit both Jose Mourinho and Lukaku as United are struggling in that position and Lukaku will not have direct competition for the lone-striker role at the club.
Two more Chelsea stars could join United
Jose Mourinho could go all-out against his former side Chelsea and lure both Willian and Cesc Fabregas to join him at Manchester United next summer.
According to reports in Portugal, people close to Mourinho believe that he still sees Willian and Fabregas as game changers and players who can still create an impact at Manchester United.
Despite their limited success at Stamford Bridge this summer both Willian and Fabregas are keeping their options open and could quit Chelsea if Mourinho and Man United are able to agree a transfer fee with Roman Abramovich.
One final push expected for Gareth Bale
Injured or not, Gareth Bale is still Manchester United's number one transfer target according to Don Balon and The Red Devils will pull off any stunt possible to sign the Welshman in January or next summer.
Bale's time at Real Madrid is all but over according to the Spanish media and manager Zinedine Zidane is keen to get rid of the £90million player at the earliest.
Bale's first choice is to move back to Premier League with Manchester United and Chelsea reported as the possible destination.
United have been tracking Bale for last 3-4 seasons and are expected to make one final push for Bale and are willing to offer beyond £80million to bring the winger back to Premier League.
United's wing options are still limited with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford both favouring the left wing which has left the likes of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata give limited width from the right-hand side.
Bale's inclusion will certainly give United a lift and will make them a favourite for the Premier League title next summer.
