Paulo Dybala's agent, Jorge Antun has opened up on why his client's transfer to Manchester United did not take place, claiming that, issues between Juventus and the Red Devils caused the move to collapse and not the strikers wage demands as reported widely.
The Argentinian was heavily linked with a move to United, with the two clubs even entering negotiations regarding a potential move only for it to be scuppered at the last minute. It was understood that United pulled out of the move due to Dybala's extraordinary wage demands, but Antun has revealed that it was not the case.
"I did speak to the British, but the stories about the commission were not true. There were simply issues between the two clubs," he said to Tuttosport.
The 25-year-old who is widely considered as one of the best young players in the world, struggled for gametime at Turin last season following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. Juventus are reportedly keen to offload him before the transfer window closes on the 2nd of September with Paris Saint-Germain said to be interested, though Antun has refuted such suggestions.
"There are no imminent trips to Paris planned," he added.
Dybala started on the bench during Juventus' first game of the 2019/20 season and it will be interesting to see how his transfer saga pans out considering there is not much time left for the window to close.
