Manchester United have decided not to go ahead with the swap deal involving Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku according to the Telegraph. The Red Devils have pulled the plug as they have doubts about the Argentine’s desire to join them, his wage demands & exorbitant agents’ fees.
Juventus were keen on signing Lukaku this summer and made a stunning offer to swap Dybala and the Belgian striker. United agreed to the deal as it was ideal for both clubs but the Argentine was not sure about a move to Old Trafford.
Inter Milan were the front runners for Lukaku but Juve’s id put things in their favour. Our sources at Manchester United claim that a fee has been agreed between the Red Devils and Inter but the hefty amount asked by the Premier League side upfront has put the move on hold.
