    At the moment he refuses United's offer, he has no guarantee at Juventus and he was told quite clearly he was not wanted.
    So that option aside, and maybe Spurs, he was negotiating but he was not able to tell himself:
    "I have no future here, so I will talk to my agent, and try to find ways to fix the images situation so that I can find a way out".

    Instead, he allegedly opted for some sort of status quo by going back to Juventus and eventually, Juventus folded.
    There is an expression in Korea for that kind of behavior, when you don't really care at some point and just do it.
    Some kind of image where you are proposing the others to cut your belly up, or something like that...

    You are speculating he doesn't prefer the bench at Juventus, but if Juventus doesn't find a way to play with him, then the bench it is, and maybe this time it will make things clearer to everyone.

    What are the qualifications? Maybe we should recruit a fresh faced graduate with a degree in sports science who did a really good dissertation on Technical Directorship.

    I think he just has to sing "Glory Glory Glory United".

    The image situation is simple to fix, someone has to pay and if the bill is really 40m than someone will have to pay Dybala at least 10m net which was allegedly an issue for both Spurs and United or just pay the bill for him. Dybala isn't signing a 5 years contract that doesn't allow him to afford that bill, that would be stupid.

    That's why we need a DOF whose experienced in finding hungry young talent. People like Campos, Mitchell or Zorc. If we bring Rio or Fletcher then we might as well keep it simple and just rely to Ole or Phelan. Its just a matter of same old same old

    Exploring his options is perfectly reasonable and he could even be part of the Juve setup again. I doubt England or Germany are at the top of his list so it could take some time to see who wants him and how much they're prepared to pay and to take it all in going from being the golden boy who spent a lot of his life in Italy.

    I get Rio's stance but for someone like Dybala who might fancy themselves as top player or at least see who comes in, taking the first ticket to United is a risk as we're 6 years on from Fergie and sixth again with an unknown quantity of a manager and just two top four finishes and very little player success.

    I don't think thats the case at all. Clearly the board wanted him out for financial reasons but if I have to bet, I would say Sarri wants him.

    He was the captain on the last friendly and scored. He scored twice again today in another friendly.

    Trying his best to force Juventus to keep him. Juventus need to sell a few players for FFP purposes due to the large outlays they've made the past few seasons.

    Mandzukic and Matuidi are the most likely victims with Dybala and Higuain resisting moves elsewhere.

    He has been on fire in all pre season gamesand Our best player.
    I think he will stay and will be our main CF this season.

    No that's not true. Our revenue has grown dramatically this year and we don't need to sell a single player for FFP.
    The problem is we have too many players and has to sell at least 6 players to decrease the size of the squad or these 6 players will be out of CL squad due to the UEFA rules.

    Dybala could have been a big improvement compared with Lingard/Pereira. He is quality, but I remember that I wanted Felix during the transfer window. Another quality player to be used as No.10 is Havertz, he is one of the best young talents right now.

    Sarri will play him, he is a fan. It doesnt look likely that someone will buy him anyway and then Sarri will play him up front

    Also missed a penalty last night...

    Played in a false nine position, showed flashes of brilliance against really average squad. Doesn't contribute in pressing...

    For us, it's just better to wait for Greenwood to bulk up and take that RWF/SS/F9 position

    Not for us he wouldn’t, if he doesn’t want to play for is then there would be no point.

    Dybala is one of the hardest presser of the team. He is not static, always moves between line, presses hard and help the team in the build up.

    Selling him would have been the worst selling of the club in this decade alongside Pogba

    This is still a pre-season game isn't it?

    I mean I don't doubt he's a fantastic player and it's a great goal, but the likes of Nani used to pull of stuff like this in meaningless friendly games.

    I still don't get why Juventus would have wanted to swap him for Lukaku. I get they have FFP issues, but there's better ways around it than by trying to ruin your team. This time next year unless they're in deep financial trouble they'll be desperate to keep hold of him.

    We could if we payed enough. I don't believe for a second in that " we want players who want to be here" shit . We just didn't want to give him huge salary.
    Was that right move? Time will tell

    If the image rights were the sticking point, which it pretty clear it was, Dybala doesn't have much say in the matter. He isn't allowed to play in England unless he owns them himself which he doesn't. So you pay £65M for the player, probably £20M to the current company that own them then probably either have to try and settle with the other company who is suing Dybala or wait and pay what a court decides? I don't think Dybala rejected United or Tottenham I simply think it was an incredibly difficult deal to do with so many parties involved.

    Again its much more than just a salary its probably another £50M to the company(s) that own his rights. I can totally see why a young player, probably from a poor background would do it, what I cant see is why Dybala seemly breached his own contract to sign for another image rights company, other than greed that is.
