Paulo Dybala’s agent has offered clarification on the real reason behind why a potential move to United failed to materialise this summer.
Dybala is not seen as indispensable at the Serie A club, and was heavily linked with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur over the summer.
However, Manchester United pulled out of the race due to the player’s lack of will to join, while Spurs opted to sign Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis instead. Reports suggested the Argentine’s demands over salary, image rights and agent’s commission were too high.
A few weeks have passed since, but Dybala’s agent, Jorge Antun, has revealed that it had nothing to do with personal terms or rumors of commissions involved in the deal, as there were issues that were not overcome between the two clubs in question.
“Was the negotiation skipped with Manchester United? Yes, I talked to the English club, but the stories on commissions are not true. There were issues between the clubs,” he is quoted as saying by Tuttosport.
Paulo Dybala was benched for Maurizio Sarri’s first game in charge of the Old Lady against Parma with Gonzalo Higuain chosen to lead the line, leading to more speculation over his future.
Since the English deadline passed, he has been mentioned as a target for Paris Saint-Germain, potentially as part of a shock bid for Neymar.
