Ian Wright reveals why Man Utd are better off without Paulo Dybala after failed transfer

Dybala was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the summer transfer window as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempted to rejuvenate his playing squad.

The Argentine international was made available for transfer by his current club Juventus after he struggled to perform in the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo last season.

However, talks came to an end after the player’s extensive wage demands were revealed, which put off Manchester United chief Ed Woodward.

Despite disappointment among fans after the deal broke down, Wright is confident that the player wouldn’t have been a success.

He told BBC 5 Live: ”I don’t see Paulo Dybala as being the guy at Man United.

“Getting Paulo Dybala in a makeweight thing for [Romelu] Lukaku, I’m not sure.

“I don’t think he would’ve been good at United.

“I think he asked for that kind of money simply because he knew he wouldn’t get it.”

The mood around United is likely to be a positive one after the 4-0 drubbing of Chelsea on Sunday, but Paul Scholes is staying level headed.

The Premier League legend has revealed his doubts over his former side’s midfield, with particular concern about Andreas Pereira.

Scholes told Optus Sport: “I’d be worried about that. [the midfield]

“I thought Pereira was a little bit quiet today.

“The lad has got ability, he’s a young player, he’s not played much football.

“I think against the better teams in midfield they may get found out. Which is why I’m saying against the better teams – counter-attack.

“I don’t think they are the type of team when they play against the top teams, like Chelsea or Manchester City, who are going to go toe-to-toe with them with possession.

“I just don’t think they are a good enough team to do that.”
