Manchester United are reportedly interested in Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala and are willing to pay up to £155m to sign him.
The Argentina international, often compared to Lionel Messi in the past, has kicked on this season by netting 12 goals in eight games overall for the Turin giants.
Dybala is a long-term target for Barcelona and, while the Catalan club did not make a formal approach during the summer transfer window, they are expected to come forward next year.
According to The Mirror, however, United could blow Barca out of the water with their nine-figure offer, which they believe will be enough to prise him away from the Allianz Stadium.
Red Devils chief executive Ed Woodward is said to have a solid relationship with Juve counterpart Beppe Marotta, having thrashed out a then-record deal for Paul Pogba in 2016, and United have already informed the Italian club of their interest.
Dybala added two more goals to his collection on Saturday night as Juventus earned a 4-0 win over neighbours Torino to maintain their perfect start to the Serie A campaign.
