Manchester United are currently undergoing a completely different transfer window compared to Liverpool, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempting to rebuild the fallen giants. 

The Red Devils are splashing the cash this summer, whereas Liverpool are targeting youth prospects with the idea of integrating them into their first team to benefit their progression which will ultimately lead to them becoming first-team regulars at Anfield.

Dybala was reported by the Times to have been demanding £10million-a-year in wages should he move to Old Trafford as talks continue to drag on.

Former Reds’ defender Andrea Dossena has claimed that if the team interested in the Argentine international was Liverpool, he wouldn’t hesitate to make the move to Anfield.

In an interview with TuttoMercatoWeb, Dossena said: “But for me still is not ready to win big in Europe as well maybe Juve. Hence its vacillations If the team in question had been Liverpool or Manchester City, in my opinion, it would have had no doubts.”

The argument made is that Liverpool are much more prepared to win silverware – something that has been clearly proven in previous years, with the Reds winning their sixth Champions League trophy last season.

Dybala would be a great addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side for next season, with his ability and flair on the ball matched with his set-piece expertise.

The Argentinian can play anywhere in attack but is most effective in behind the striker where he can exploit pockets of space. The 25-year-old averaged 2.2 shots per game as well as 1.7 key passes and the same amount of completed dribbles in each outing [WhoScored] – stats which prove how he can both score and provide his teammates with chances on demand.

Manchester United’s last trophy was the Europa League, which they won in 2017, and is easily forgotten when compared to Liverpool’s Champions League success – a competition which holds much more weight.

Dybala would most likely laugh at the Europa League at this stage of his career, and Dossena is spot on with his Liverpool-themed dig at Man United, with Manchester United surely needing to try and look more capable of replicating the Reds if they’re to succeed with their reported pursuit.
