United had looked at Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann last summer but the Red Devils have turned their attention to Dybala and have placed a bid of around £70m plus Mkhitaryan.
The Sun claim Juventus have turned United’s opening bid down and are holding out for closer to £90m.
The Serie A giants are not believed to be keen on a deal involving Mkhitaryan, which is a further blow to the Armenian.
Mkhitaryan, 28, is out of favour under Mourinho and last started for the club in a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on November 5th.
Should United not receive a suitable offer in January, they will hold onto Mkhitaryan in the summer and sell to the highest bidder.
