Cape Town - Manchester United and Itlalian side Juventus have reportedly agreed a swap deal in principle for Argentinian attacker Paulo Dybala in exchange for Romelu Lukaku.

According to reports in Italy, the two clubs have agreed an initial deal that will see Man United pay between €15-20 million for Dybala who is valued at €100 million.

The Argentine international's agent, Jorge Antun on Tuesday flew into Manchester to discuss personal terms on a potential move.

Lukaka is keen on joining Maurizio Sarri's side with the only stumbling block being Dybala's preference to remain with Juventus and fight for his place.

The 25-year-old's first choice is to remain in Turin but would accept a move to Old Trafford if Sarri confirms that he's not in his plans at the Italian club.

Dybala is set to join up with the Juventus squad on Thursday and will discuss his future at the club.

Respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports that United has also agreed a fee with Leicester City for defender Harry Maguire who is set to complete a move to Manchester.

Also Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes looks set to complete a €70 million move from Sporting Lisbon with the two clubs finalising a deal, that would signify a positive transfer window for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
