Agent: Dybala was on verge of joining Man Utd

The agent of Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed how close Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala came to joining Manchester United.

Dybala was all set to join United as a replacement for Lukaku.

“It's true, it was on the verge of happening," Federico Pastorello confessed to Tuttosport.

“Romelu, however, had always hoped to join Inter because he was struck by the affection of the Nerazzurri fans."

Asked about Dybala's plans this summer, Pastorello added: “I don't know the situation from the inside because I'm not his agent, but Dybala seems to be flourishing again to me.

“I honestly still see him at Juve. I don't think the swap deals will affect him, Kane or the other champions."
