Manchester United were put off a move for Paulo Dybala over the huge agent fees involved in a deal to bring him to Old Trafford, according to a report.

United pulled out of a deal with Juventus because they were not convinced over the playmaker’s motivation, while Tottenham also walked away from an agreement on deadline day.

And now The Athletic have revealed the huge fees that would have been involved if a deal for Dybala went through.

The Athletic claim:

United did look at a replacement for [Alexis] Sanchez in Paulo Dybala but baulked at wage demands of £18 million a year.

‘The Athletic has also been told agent fees alone would have reached £13 million.’

Dybala’s agent recently denied accusations that the Argentina striker’s demands were too high.

Jorge Antun told TuttoSport: “I did speak to the English club, but the stories about the commission were not true.

“There were simply issues between the two clubs.”
