Manchester United hope that Paul Pogba will convince Paulo Dybala to join the club, according to reports.
The French midfielder played a crucial role in bringing friend Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford in the summer – giving himself the ‘Agent P’ nickname.
Jose Mourinho now wants Pogba to help bring his former Juventus team-mate to Manchester.
According to the Daily Mirror, Dybala has replaced Antoine Griezmann as Mourinho’s top target.
Pogba had been trying to convince Griezmann to join Manchester United before he decided to in Madrid because of Atletico’s transfer ban.
Mourinho is now said to have switched targets.
Mourinho has apparently now given up on signing Griezmann, especially with Barcelona hot on his heels.
The Portuguese now wants to concentrate on Argentinian hitman Dybala.

Pogba and Dybala were great friends in Turin, where they won a league and cup double in 2015-16.
Pogba sparked Dybala exit rumours back in November when he wished him a happy birthday – and again used the ‘Agent P’ hashtag on social media.

The midfielder had first used the nickname when Romelu Lukaku signed for United, after spending the summer with Pogba in Los Angeles.
Dybala has been in stunning form for Juve this season.
He has 14 goals and three assists in Serie A, although Juventus trail Napoli by a point at the top of the table.
Jose needs this right now.
