Man Utd focused on keeping Ronaldo amid Dybala noise

Manchester United remain focused on retaining Cristiano Ronaldo amid reports they could replace him with Paulo Dybala.

Ronaldo, 37, is the only United player yet to return to pre-season training.

Doubts are growing as to whether Ronaldo will be back at the club in time for the start of the pre-season tour.

Argentina star Dybala, who is a free agent after leaving Juventus last month, has been linked as a possible replacement for the Portuguese.

Dybala was on the verge of joining Inter Milan, but their signing of Romelu Lukaku has cast doubt over the financial possibility of that deal.

However, the Manchester Evening News reports that the Red Devils are completely focused on keeping Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has a year remaining on the two-year deal, while there is also the option of a further one-year extension.

United attempted to sign Dybala in 2019 but his wage demands scuppered the move.
