Speculation regarding an expected £85m deal for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has significantly cooled since summer, with Dybala now supposedly on the radar.

He also hopes the presence of ex-Juventus talent scout Javier Ribalta can make a difference to the Argentina worldwide.
The diminutive South American, who is also a target of Bayern Munich and Barcelona, certainly ticks all the right boxes at United.
However, according to Spanish publication Don Balon, the Portuguese wants United to delve into the transfer market once again in attempt to close the gap on Manchester City, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Paulo Dybala all on his list of targets.
