Manchester United have been issued a major transfer boost with Paulo Dybala set to leave Juventus as a free agent at the end of the season.

Dybala’s contract with Juve runs out in June and a potential renewal before the summer transfer window looks unlikely.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Dybala will leave Juventus as free agent. There was full verbal agreement last October for €8m (£6.7m) plus €2m (£1.7m) net salary until 2026 – then Juve decided to change their proposal.

“Paulo’s not happy with current, new conditions and he will now open talks with other clubs.”

Romano added: “There’s NO agreement between Juventus and Paulo Dybala. He will not sign a new deal at current conditions, while his contract runs out in June – he’s set to leave as free agent.

“Juventus position is now clear after meeting with Dybala’s agent today [this] morning.”

With Edinson Cavani set to leave the club at the end of the season, Manchester United now look set to sign Dybala as a free agent but must beat off competition from Tottenham Hotspur who are also interested.
