Paulo Dybala once said former Juventus teammate Cristiano Ronaldo was “difficult to face” as the pair chased 100 goals for the Italian club.
Dybala has now officially announced that he will be leaving Juventus at the end of this season, leaving some of the European elites to be scrapped to secure his services for free this summer. Manchester United are reportedly one of the affected teams, preparing for an unlikely reunion.
But the Argentine has expressed frustration during the last year Ronaldo has been at Juventus, as both players have scored 100 goals for the club. Dybala told Twitch in April 2021: “Ronaldo and I are competing to reach 100 goals with Juventus.
“I only need one, he still needs three. He always wants to win, even in training, and if he loses it becomes difficult to face for a few minutes ”.
Both players hit the goal of 100 goals in the end, but Ronaldo’s attitude when he lost seemed to bother Dybala at the time. Unfortunately for Ronaldo, that feeling of defeat has become quite routine since he returned to United this season.
United fans began to become optimistic that Dybala could be headed for Old Trafford, as his agent would travel to London to speak to both Arsenal and the Red Devils. It is reported that Dybala’s agent will likely test the waters and make a proposal to United.
Dybala has been heavily linked to moving up to Serie A rivals Inter Milan, but the allure of the Premier League may be enough to make him dizzy. The Argentine was close to moving to Tottenham when the club was led by Jose Mourinho, but he remained in Turin.
But a deal with United could be hampered due to their disappointing league position, as Dybala wants to play in the Champions League. As things stand, United are only clinging to a position in the Europa League, although they are unlikely to lose their spot to West Ham.
And according to Il Bianconero Dybala could choose Arsenal, but once again it depends on their ability to finish in the top four. Inter have confirmed their place in the Champions League, but a transfer to England cannot be ruled out yet.
