A couple of years ago, Paulo Dybala was considered as one of the most promising young strikers in the world, but ever since he joined Juventus, his overall value has taken a major dip.

The Argentinean wasn't able to establish himself upfront for the talent-loaded team during Massimiliano Allegri's tenure, and Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival did nothing to ease his struggles.

Therefore, now that Maurizio Sarri is the new man in town, the Bianconeri are offering Dybala a way out of the team to try and find his best level again, with Manchester United heavily interested in acquiring his services.

However, it looks like the lefty has no intention of lessening his financial expectations whatsoever, as he's reportedly demanding a huge £350k ($425k) weekly salary to join the Red Devils, as per The Daily Mail.

Dybala is currently earning £6.5million a year at Turin and he's looking for that number to drastically increase, even though he's yet to prove he's worthy of a huge salary with his goal-scoring.

The Red Devils want Dybala to be Romelu Lukaku's replacement, as the Belgian striker is looking to make a move to the Italian Serie A, either to Internazionale or the aforementioned Juventus.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to strengthen his team on all areas of the pitch, and Dybala could mesh perfectly upfront with Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford.

However, it looks like Manchester United's officials are reluctant to pay him such a high salary, a sum that would make him the second-best paid player in the English Premier League behind Arsenal's Mesut Ozil.

Dybala has all the tools to succeed in England. He's fast, smart, and has a privileged touch with his left foot from outside the box. He can play in the center of the box, or just near the flanks as a winger, but unless he's willing to take a lesser salary, he's not likely to leave Juventus any time soon.
