Juventus’ plan for signing Manchester United star Paul Pogba has been revealed in the latest update on this ongoing saga.
The talented Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola revealed on the eve of the clash with RB Leipzig that his client is not happy at the club and should leave in January.
Not only was it outrageous but it was also poorly timed, leaving United fans fuming and calling for Pogba to be sold.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to drop the former Juventus man to the bench for the match vs RB Leipzig and his side ended up crashing out of the Champions League.
The Red Devils now look certain to sell Pogba but there’s a problem in regards to who can afford his price tag and so the Italian giants have come up with a plan.
Manchester United will receive in January a swap offer for Pogba from Juventus, giving Dybala.
Juventus was well aware of Pogba’s agent Raiola move, as it aims to cut Pogba price and make it straight swap.

In theory, Paulo Dybala would be a brilliant signing for Manchester United but there are question marks over the deal.
For example, where would the Argentine attacker fit in as he’s known for being an attacking-midfielder which is Bruno Fernandes’ main position?
He’s also capable as a striker but Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani are already battling it out for that role.
The only viable position is United’s biggest weakness which is their right-wing but will Dybala be able to give his best there?
Swap deals are also fairly rare in the modern game and with two world-class players it seems difficult, although not impossible, to complete.
Edinson Cavani has made quite an impact since his deadline day arrival at Old Trafford, but how much do you know about our other South American players, past and present? Take our quiz below to find out!
