Manchester United are also reportedly lining up move for a new attacker. Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, who joined the Serie A title holders from Palermo for £25m in May 2015, is a target for the Old Trafford club, but the Argentinian may see the club paying £86m.
United allegedly had a £70m + a player bid rejected by Juventus, but they may come back with an improved offer. Romelu Lukaku has struggled for consistency in recent weeks, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is just returning from a long-term knee injury, so the club’s attack could benefit from some fresh blood.
Dybala has been in superb form this season, netting 12 goals in 17 games for Juventus, contributing 19 goals in 25 outings across all competitions. Dybala was benched for Juve’s 1-0 win against AS Roma, although the Italian Serie A giants aren’t looking to sell if they can help it.
If Mourinho wants to make up the 15-point gap to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Premier League table, the Portuguese boss may have to splash out in excess of £139m to sign his coveted targets.
