Man Utd linked with fresh Paulo Dybala transfer swoop but face competition from PSG with Pochettino keen on Juventus ace

MANCHESTER UNITED are once again being linked with a transfer swoop for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala.

But they could face some competition for the Argentine star if Mauricio Pochettino gets the Paris Saint-Germain job.

According to Tuttosport if Poch is the man chosen to replace Thomas Tuchel, he would be keen on signing countryman Dybala.

Pochettino tried unsuccessfully to bring Dybala to Tottenham during his tenure in North London.

United also came close to signing Dybala in the summer of 2019, but that move broke down over wages and agents' fees.

SunSport has reported how Pochettino is in 'advanced talks' tp take over at PSG.

Pochettino has been out of a job since being sacked by Tottenham 13 months ago.

He had been holding out for the Manchester United job with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s position under constant scrutiny.

But after a disappointing start to the season Solskjaer has got United back into the title race and the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

Pochettino is now ready to take the jump back into management at the club where he played between 2001-03.

And his first transfer target when the window opens in the New Year will be one of his former players at Tottenham.

While Alli was a regular in Pochettino’s teams he has fallen out of favour with current boss Jose Mourinho.

Alli, 24, has started just five games this season and was hauled off shortly after Stoke equalised in their 3-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final victory on Wednesday and publicly blamed by Mourinho for their goal.
