Manchester United have approached Paulo Dybala’s agent in an effort to sign the Argentine forward, according to reports.
The Red Devils were handed a shock on Saturday when star man Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford ahead of next season.
The Portuguese striker is frustrated by the club’s lack of transfer activity this summer and has reportedly disagreed with the decision to appoint three managers in quick succession following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last November.

But Ronaldo is also eager to play in the Champions League again next campaign, having featured in the competition for the last 19 consecutive seasons.
New boss Erik ten Hag, who succeeded Michael Carrick’s and Ralf Rangnick’s temporary stints in the hotseat this summer, has yet to make a signing in the transfer window despite flirting with potential moves for Frenkie de Jong and Tyrell Malacia.
It is believed Manchester United would be satisfied to part with Ronaldo were a ‘suitable offer’ put on the table, which has prompted the club to consider replacements in attack.

The Italian outlet claims that Inter Milan, Tottenham Hotspur and Napoli are also interested in securing his signature, although there is no confirmation they have yet held talks with the forward’s agent Jorge Antun.
Free agent Dybala has called an end to his seven-year spell at Juventus having scored 115 goals in 293 appearances at the club.
