Paulo Dybala’s move to Manchester United is gathering pace, with the Argentine only needing to agree on wages and image rights before the deal can go through.
Romelu Lukaku, who has wanted a move to Italy all summer, struck a total agreement with The Old Lady earlier this week.
Dybala’s preference is to remain at Juventus, and the forward is yet to arrive at a decision over what to do next, but he is said to feel ‘betrayed’ by the Serie A champions.
According to the reliable and growingly eminent Fabrizio Romano, there are only personal details left before the move happens.

Image rights and Dybala’s weekly wage could be what stymies any potential move with less than a week until the window shuts.
The encouraging thing is that these minor details constitute all that is left to be discussed. The two clubs both want the move to happen – a big difference from the deal to sign Harry Maguire – and the only thing remaining is getting Dybala on board.
As Romano has noted, Dybala admires United, a ‘historic club’, but needs to be guaranteed a wage greater than what he received at Juventus. The deal really is almost there.
