PAULO DYBALA is ready to snub Manchester United and Arsenal in favour of Roma, according to reports.

Dybala, 28, left Italian giants Juventus last month after his contract expired and has been the subject of interest from a number of clubs since.

Among these are United and Arsenal, who both want to push into the top four next season in order to get Champions League football.

However, Tuttomercatoweb claims the Argentine is now ready to accept Roma’s contract proposal following a phone call from Jose Mourinho.

Reports in Italy say an official offer will be submitted within 24 hours, with Roma expecting an answer in the next few days.

Last week it was reported it will take an offer of £100,000 per week to convince Dybala to join a club, with the relatively cheap demands bringing the Serie A side into play against the Premier League money-heavyweights.

But Dybala wants to play in the Champions League, and is still waiting to hear from Napoli and Inter Milan over contract proposals.

Although, the latter bringing Romelu Lukaku back to the club on loan may have scuppered any hope of a deal taking place, with the squad now overcrowded unless they can offload the likes of Alexis Sanchez.

Dybala scored 15 goals for Juventus last season, chipping in with a further six assists in all competitions.

Arsenal have already brought in Gabriel Jesus to bolster their attack, with the £45million Brazilian impressing during Arsenal’s first two games of pre-season.


United remain focused on other targets, namely Frenkie de Jong, while they also look set to complete the signing of defender Lisandro Martinez this week.

Any potential move for Dybala from these clubs will come later in the window due to him not being a priority, but Roma’s interest could see the saga end far sooner.

However, should they fall short in signing Dybala, they will turn their attention towards ex-United star Jesse Lingard and Atalanta’s Mario Palasic.
