Manchester United are preparing to raid Juventus again with another big money swoop – this time for £155 million Argentinian goal-machine Paulo Dybala, according to the Mirror.

The 23-year old has been likened to compatriot Lionel Messi, and could finally leave the Italian champions next summer, having continuously attracted interests from some of Europe’s top clubs.

And the Italian giants have revealed Dybala is in charge of his own destiny as he has no release clause in his contract.

Although Barcelona are expected to attempt to sign the South American superstar next summer, United transfer negotiator Ed Woodward has made it clear to Dybala's management team that, if he does decide to quit Juventus, Jose Mourinho wants him at Old Trafford.

United took Paul Pogba from Juventus fourteen months ago in a then world record £89million deal since surpassed by Neymar's £196million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

Woodward has a solid relationship with Juve's general manager Beppe Marotta and although Barcelona have also registered interest in Dybala – the player's number one preferred destination - United are in the hunt too.

Marotta admitted recently they would be powerless to stop Dybala leaving Turin if he wants to move on – and that's alerted both Barcelona and United.
