Cape Town - Manchester United are reported to be lining up an £85 million swoop for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala in the next transfer window.

Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning a huge overhaul of his squad during the close season and a new striker will be high on his wanted list once he has cleared the decks.

Striker Romelu Lukaku could be heading for the exit door following a frustrating season and reports in the Italian press claim that United will move for Dybala as his replacement.

The Argentina international has been pushed out of the limelight somewhat following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin and has chipped in with just 10 goals this season.

That is compared to 22 in Serie A alone the season before and United will believe they can get him back to his best if he makes the switch to Old Trafford.

Juve could be set to sell the 25-year-old as they look to make changes of their own, but will demand top dollar for the striker if United do make an approach.
