Ex-Liverpool man has a message for Manchester United transfer target that Reds fans will love

Former Liverpool left-back Andrea Dossena says Paulo Dybala should reject the chance to sign for Manchester United – and sign for the Reds or Manchester City instead.

Dossena played with Dybala at Palermo and says the only reason the Argentine forward is deliberating over a move to the Premier League is because it’s United who are in for him. Had it been the Reds or City, he thinks he would have jumped at the chance of a switch.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Dossena said: “If he had to choose to leave Juve to go to United, I’m sure he would make himself available to the new club and could benefit from the atmosphere in the Premier League.

“We are talking about another world football superpower, but United are not ready to win big in Europe so he may as well stay at Juve.

“If the team in question had been Liverpool or Manchester City, in my opinion, he would have had no doubts. United are more of a construction site at the moment, and for this reason, I understand the indecision.”

That does make a lot of sense – United are a long way behind at the moment, though Dybala could be one of the signings they need to bridge the gap slightly.

There is no suggestion that the Reds are in for Dybala – though links to him did emerge a few months back – but it would be an amazing signing if it were to happen. If Dybala does head to United, that would be a real shame.
