Manchester United End Paulo Dybala Pursuit Over Attacker’s Massive Contract Demands

Published

on

​Paulo Dybala is due to restart training with Juventus on Monday morning after a deal to take him to Manchester United appears to have fallen through over contract demands.

United fans’ pulses were set racing by reports that the highly rated Argentine was set to be included in a sensational part-exchange deal which would see him (and possibly Mario Mandzukic) make the move to Old Trafford with Romelu Lukaku joining the Old Lady.

​Dybala made a series of demands which included a €15m fee for his agent and a €12m annual salary, putting him on a par with the club’s top earners.

These demands were deemed too excessive by the ​United board, who have now decided to pull the plug on the potential deal. According to the report, they saw the attacker’s demands as a clear sign that he was reluctant on a move to the ​Premier League and were not willing to take a risk by signing him.

Throughout the talks over the last few days, Dybala has been rumoured to be reluctant about moving to England.

This all but ends ​Lukaku’s hopes of exiting Old Trafford, despite being linked with a move to ​Serie A throughout the summer. Initially, ​Inter looked like his most likely destination, until ​Juve attempted to hijack the deal.

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
