Manchester United fans have been left in disarray after the club ended talks with Juventus over the signing of Argentine striker Paulo Dybala.
United entered talks with the Argentinian as part of the proposed Romelu Lukaku swap deal. Despite the player announcing he is open to offers, the Red Devils had doubts as to whether the left-footed forward really wanted to join the club.
According to reports, United have felt frustrated after failing to agree with the Juventus forward regarding his salary, his image rights and any commission to his agent, Jorge Antun.

This has thrown fans into a panic ahead of the new season. With a few days left before the window closes, United lag behind in terms of transfer.
Maguire, James and Bissaka were desperate to play for MUFC. Dybala wasn't. Only excessive amounts of £ could have changed that. MU not as attractive as they were to best talents, but it's still better to have players who want to join rather repeat errors for mercenaries.

Failed window if we don’t sing a creative midfielder

Shambles, Andy. The window closes in 5 days. Everyone has known, for months, what players were needed and what ones had to be shipped out. If Dybala was a target in June, it shouldn’t take until August to realise he doesn’t want to sign. Be lucky to finish 6th with that squad.

I’m just angry seeing that we may not get a midfielder or a 10 plus a good RW. We’re one or two injuries away from being a mediocre team. If pogba get injured or down tools who do we look too. Mata or gomes?? We need bruno or whichever midfielder they are in for then i cn rest.

That’s not even the point. The club is just a shit show, we just had to show ambition by signing dybala and Bruno and all in one night we pulled out of dybala, Bruno is not a target and even the female team sold it’s captain

Then don’t go there in the first place – to be mugged off and look like idiots – Ed Woodward & @ManUtd recruitment policy is shambolic and laughable and has been for years – they continue to get away with murder – even Salford FC is run better #MUFC #Embarrassing #ShitShow

Dybala joined Juventus from Palermo in 2015 and scored 10 times for the Italian side last season, including the only goal in the first leg of the Champions League group match against United at Old Trafford in October.
