The Positives Of Dybala-Lukaku Swap, Two For Pogba And Pepe Goes To Arsenal

What Good Would Come From Dybala-Lukaku Swap?

There have been some 24 hours since it was first reported that Juventus are thinking about bidding for Romelu Lukaku. Gianluca Di Marzio even reported that the Bianconerri could be offering Paulo Dybala in a potential swap in order to make all sides satisfied. So, what would be the positives of such deal if it was to happen?

It seems like a win-win situation so far. Manchester United would get rid of the Belgian striker which obviously wants to leave and move to Italy and his agent is doing everything he can to make that happen. On the other hand, Man United could either get 70 million pounds or Paulo Dybala, which would both suit the club. The money would be enough to forget about the transfer the club made two summers ago, but would leave them without much time to sign a new player.

That is where Dybala enters the picture. The talented Argentine did not have a great season, but could still turn out to be a really good signing, with Man United getting a player of clear Champions League caliber. This would make all sides happy, with Juventus also eager to offload Dybala if possible, especially now when it looks unlikely for him to find the place in Maurizio Sarri’s team.

Two Midfielders In If Pogba Leaves

If Paul Pogba leaves Man United this summer, the club would want to sign two midfielders before the new season starts, Andy Mitten reports. But there are some questions in regards to this hypothetical situation. Is Paul Pogba actually going to leave? Could Man United sign two midfielders in such a swift manner? And also, who would those players be?

Real Madrid might be waiting for English transfer market deadline to get closer, in order to put Man United under more pressure, but so far it looks like the player is staying at the club. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been mentioned as the one that would replace Pogba, but who would be the other one? Maybe Sean Longstaff?

Pepe To Join Arsenal

Nicolas Pepe is not going to join Manchester United, but rather Arsenal. BBC reported today that the Devils were never really in the race to sign Lille’s right winger. Now it appears that Arsenal are going to pay 80 million pounds for the Ivory Coast international, as the 22-year-old had a great season in Ligue 1. He helped Lille return to Champions League, but now is ready for a step up.

Arsenal seem to be overpaying for a player whose ceiling might not be high enough to justify the money spent on him. Man United, on the other hand, have done well not to ‘bite’ on this transfer, as they would have to overspend on an insufficiently proven winger. With Daniel James already joining this summer from Swansea, it would not be a good move to go all-in for Pepe, when there are other, more pressing concerns in this squad.

Now, it is on Man United to do what they can to bring in a defender and possibly midfielders and they might also overspend on some of them.
