‘He’ll Be Perfect For United’ ‘We Don’t Really Need Him’ City Fans On Social Media Back City’s Decision To Turn Down Chance To Sign Juve Ace

Manchester City have turned down the chance to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, according to reports in the Italian media.

Tottenham have also opted against a bid for the Argentinian striker, but Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain remain interested.

Fans on Twitter are happy for Dybala to move to their city rivals instead:

A few supporters thought he would be a good addition:

It’s certainly hard to see where the Argentine would fit into Pep Guardiola’s team. Dybala generally plays as a number 10; a position not generally catered for in City’s 4-3-3.

With Phil Foden poised to take over from David Silva as the club’s key playmaker, as well as the creativity provided from Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, a move for the Juve star wouldn’t make a lot of sense.

If he was signed as an out-and-out forward, he would also struggle for game time with Gabriel Jesus having shown at this summer’s Copa America that he is fully primed to be Sergio Aguero’s successor in the number nine role.
