Erik ten Hag 'wants Paulo Dybala at Manchester United'

Erik Ten Hag has requested that Manchester United sign Juventus' Paulo Dybala on a free transfer this summer, according to a report.

The Ajax boss looks set to take over at Old Trafford at the end of the season, with it being reported that the Dutchman has agreed a four-year deal to take over from interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

As a result, the 52-year-old is already making plans for the upcoming transfer window at United, with Corriere dello Sport reporting that Ten Hag is interested in bringing Dybala to the Premier League.

The report suggests that the United hierarchy already met with the 28-year-old's agent over the past week to discuss a potential deal.

However, it is also noted that there is nothing concrete in the talks as of yet, with Dybala also being linked with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur as the forward's agent sounds out any interest in his client.

After making the move to Turin for around £36m in the summer of 2015, it has been confirmed that Dybala is set to leave Juventus at the end of the season following the expiration of his contract, with no renewal able to have been agreed between the two parties
