Manchester United will end their interest in Juventus striker Paulo Dybala due to the player and his agent's demands, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News understands United are moving on from Dybala due to his wage demands, excessive requests from his agent and a general sense the player would be coming to Old Trafford for the wrong reasons.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer only wants to recruit players who want to be part of the club's long-term project.

United had agreed a swap deal in principle with Juventus involving Dybala and Romelu Lukaku, according to Sky in Italy.

    The deal was hinging on Dybala's preference and his agreement of personal terms with the Premier League side.

    But United's reluctance to sign Dybala likely signals an end to any proposed swap with Juventus involving Lukaku.

    Sky Sports News understands Manchester United will continue to talk to other clubs over the sale of the Belgium international.
