Paulo Dybala is set for crunch talks with Maurizio Sarri and will be told Juventus are open to selling him.

The 25-year-old has been a key component of Juve’s multiple Serie A title winning machine ever since his move from Palermo four years ago.

Dybala, however, endured his least productive campaign in Turin to date last season with his position in Max Allegri’s team compromised by the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The versatile Argentine international forward’s preference is to remain at Juventus, according to Goal, but it is unclear as to how Dybala will fit into Sarri’s tactical blueprint, and he could yet be used in a swap deal involving Manchester United outcast Romelu Lukaku.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left the former Everton striker out of the squad which has travelled to Norway ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Kristiansund and has reportedly given Lukaku until Thursday to resolve his future.

The United manager does not want the uncertainty surrounding the Belgium international’s future to drag on and, if he is to leave, wants enough time to recruit a replacement.

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, last season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner, has been linked with a shock move to Old Trafford, while Solskjaer is said to be keen on Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.

Dembele scored twice in Sunday’s Emirates Cup win over Arsenal, but afterwards appeared to commit his future to the Ligue 1 club.

Inter, meanwhile, have already seen two formal offers for Lukaku rejected and do not appear to be in a position to match United’s valuation, with Ed Woodward keen to generate a profit on a player who was bought for £75million two years ago.
