Here at Dream Team we take sick and twisted pleasure in announcing Man United’s transfers before they do.
Experienced gaffers will remember we added Paul Pogba to the game when he was still technically a Juventus player.
And we’ve gone early with Harry Maguire too.
You can pick ‘slab head’ in your defence before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer!
Keen to continue our premature rampage, we’ve decided on a price for Paulo Dybala.
The Argentine forward will start at £4.5m if he does sign for Man United before the transfer window closes.
How does that compare to the Premier League’s current crop?
Well, Jamie Vardy is the only other forward currently valued at £4.5m.
Proven Prem performers Alexandre Lacazette, Roberto Firmino and Heung-min Son all start £0.5m dearer at £5.0m.
No doubt a fair few United fans will bring Dybala into their Dream Team as soon as possible if the switch is confirmed.
But what will he offer?
Many will be concerned by his stats last season — five goals from 30 league fixtures.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Juventus meant Dybala’s role changed as he was often asked to play from the right or as a No10 in a subsidiary capacity.
You only have to look at his record in 2017/18 to see what he can do when he’s the ‘main man’ — 22 goals in 33 league games.
If the rumours are true and the 25-year-old is set to switch dressing rooms with Romelu Lukaku then you’d expect him to play as Solskjaer’s centre-forward.
Dybala contributes to build-up play while also aiming to provide the finishing touch.
He takes a decent free-kick too, he just hasn’t had many chances to prove it in the last year with Ronaldo and Miralem Pjanic for company.
What will his mental state be?
Angel Di Maria was practically forced against his will to join Man United and we all know how that worked out.
Most reports suggest Dybala wants to remain in Turin and so there’s a chance he won’t be fully motivated to play for United.
Then there’s the Paul Pogba factor.
The Frenchman had a great understanding with Dybala during their time together at Juve.
Good pals to this day, the pair would relish playing with each once more if fate decides so.
So there you have it, £4.5m for Dybala if/when he signs on the dotted line.
