JUVENTUS have rejected an offer of £70million plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United for Paulo Dybala. It is understood the reigning Serie A champions want around £86m for the highly-rated Argentinian — which is the same price as Antoine Griezmann's buy-out clause. The Frenchman had been United's prime target, however Jose Mourinho believes the money would be better spent elsewhere and the Red Devils have ended their interest in the Atletico Madrid hitman. Dybala has a similar style to Griezmann but, at 24, is two years his junior and would arguably represent better value for money. Mourinho is desperate to add more creativity to his attack and appears to have given up on the idea of Mikhitaryan providing it. The Armenian showed his talent in glimpses but has failed to impose himself in the biggest games since arriving last summer.
