Manchester United insiders have confirmed that they have reached agreement with Juventus over a swap deal that will see Paulo Dybala move to Old Trafford and Romelu Lukaku make the switch to Turin.
After reports that the move was edging closer on Tuesday afternoon, United and Juve concluded their negotiations over a deal that could be worth in excess of £80m, with Dybala now left to agree terms over his move to England.

Dybala’s representatives met with United officials in London on Tuesday to thrash out an agreement, with the initial reluctance of the player to move to a club that will play Europa League football next season seemingly evaporating when Juve made it clear they wanted him to move on.
As for Lukaku, he has made it clear for several months that he is keen to move to Italy and while Inter Milan were initially the front runners to secure his signature, they could not agree a fee with United for the player.
Now it appears a swap deal that could be hugely beneficial for both clubs financially for numerous reasons is set to be finalized, with the lack of cash moving between the two clubs making this a cost-effective deal.
