Manchester United have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala, according to reports.

Dybala has scored 27 goals in 60 appearances for Juve since making his debut for the Serie A giants back in 2015 but the 23-year-old has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League.

The Sun suggest Jose Mourinho is ready to go head-to-head with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in the battle to land the Argentinian striker.

Mourinho is searching for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s long-term successor at Old Trafford but Dybala’s signature will not come cheap.

It’s understood Juventus value the highly-rated forward at around £50m so the Portuguese boss must be prepared to splash the cash in order to land his target.

Dybala recently admitted that he’s missing Paul Pogba since the midfielder’s move to United, telling Corriere dello Sport: ‘I’m still talking to Pogba.

‘We are missing him for his quality on the pitch and his jokes in the dressing room.’
