Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United to sign Juventus forward, Paulo Dybala instead of Gareth Bale, according to reports. The Red Devils have been linked with a move for several targets this summer as Jose Mourinho hopes to bolster his squad in a bid to better their performances next season. Reports in the Mundo Deportivo claim that Jose Mourinho has discussed his next line of action after failing to sign Antoine Griezmann and he is not convinced about Alexandre Lacazette’s abilities. The report also claim that the United boss have shifted focus from signing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid and wants to sign Dybala instead. It is understood that Mourinho views the Argentine as an ideal replacement for Wayne Rooney, who is expected to leave the Old Trafford this summer after struggling under the Portuguese. However, it is also claimed that Manchester United may face competition from Chelsea, with reports that the Blues are considering signing Dybala as a replacement for Eden Hazard, who is a subject of interest from Real Madrid. Reports in Italy suggest that Paulo Dybala is not certain about his future at Juventus due to the future of Massimilano Allegri and might consider offers from other clubs in near future.
