The agent of Paulo Dybala denies he played a role in his move to Manchester United breaking down.

Dybala was strongly linked with a switch from Juventus to Old Trafford in the summer but an agreement couldn’t be reached.

It’s been reported that Juve boss Maurizio Sarri sees no room for the Argentine forward in his preferred Bianconeri line-up.

Subsequently, the powers that be attempted to offload Dybala, with Man Utd quickly becoming a likely destination especially with suggestions Juve were keen to involve Romelu Lukaku in a prospective deal.

However, it never materialised, with Dybala’s representative Jorge Antun blamed by some for the move collapsing, as he was supposedly keen on receiving a €15m commission, but he’s come out fighting suggesting it was a matter between the clubs.

“I did speak to the English club, but the stories about the commission were not true,” he told Tuttosport.

“There were simply issues between the two clubs.”
