MANCHESTER UNITED look set to lose out on Juventus star Paulo Dybala to Inter Milan.
Inter have wasted no time pouncing on the soon-to-be agent and are reportedly preparing to offer the striker a hefty £100,000-a-week contract.
Incoming Man United boss Erik ten Hag is reportedly keen on bringing in Dybala when he takes over this summer.
The 28-year-old is set to leave Turin when his contract expires upon the season's climax.
Talks with the Serie A titans have broken down leading to a swath of interest across Europe in the striker from clubs including Tottenham and Atletico Madrid.
His position has been threatened by the arrival of Arsenal target Dusan Vlahovic in January.

Despite being handed the captain's armband by Juve this season, the unsettled attacker looks destined for the exit.
But unfortunately for United and Ten Hag, Inter have swiftly encroached on Dybala, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, via the Daily Mail.
The Italian publication claims the Nerazzurri have presented the Argentine's representatives with a proposal worth £5million annually.
Inter's offer is slightly less than the £5.5m he rakes in at the Allianz Stadium – but more than what United have managed to muster thus far.

Dybala could spearhead a frightening new attacking line with Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku at Inter next season.
The Belgium international has publicly declared his desire to return to the San Siro.
And Simone Inzaghi's side are reportedly open to making Lukaku's wish come true.
But that's only if Lukaku's willing to take a hefty pay-cut.
He currently pockets around £10-11m at Stamford Bridge, but will have to accept half of that amount for Inter to consider making a move.
