Paulo Dybala has emerged as one of the best young players in world football this season. The Argentine has been in scintillating form for Palermo so far this season, and has attracted interest from all over Europe. Juventus, Arsenal, Paris St. German, Chelsea, and Inter are all highly monitoring Dybala. Here are all of the main points about Paulo Dybala:
His price is going up by the day: Paulo Dybala is definitely not getting any cheaper. Today the Argentine’s agent, Gustavo Mascardi, stated that the player is worth 50 million euros. Nearly a week ago, Zamparnini clearly said that he wanted 40 million euros for Dybala. The Argentine international has been in fantastic form, but is his evaluation a bit of a joke? Dybala has been observed by Argentina’s national coach Gerardo Martino, but is yet to receive an international call up. The only Italian club that has presented Zamparnini with an official offer is Juventus. The Bianconeri offered Palermo 25 million euros, with 8 million euros worth of bonuses. Inter are closely monitoring the situation, and could make an offer soon.
Inter has a place in Dybala’s heart: Inter closely followed Dybala during his days at Istituto Cordoba. In March 2012, Dybala admitted that playing for Inter would be a dream:
“I know that my name has been linked with some of the biggest teams in the world, and it is an honor for me. I have to stay calm. Inter? I love them as a team. When I play, I always try to watch them on television. I know that they are interested in me. I ate and had a coffee with some representatives of the Nerazzurri, and if I really end up getting bought by Inter, it would be great. Inter are a great club and if would definitely be making a dream a reality, knowing that i watched them as a child. Right now, I am focusing on achieving promoting with Istituto, but after, it would be really nice to play for Inter.”
Unfortunately, the Nerazzurri called off the deal to sign Dybala, and the Argentine’s price has grown nearly 40 million euros from the 12 million that Palermo bought him for. This could go down as one of the biggest missed opportunities in transfer history. The lessons to be learned…
The Zanetti factor: All Inter fans know that Javier Zanetti is capable of making and retaining great relationships. Paulo Dybala definitely idolized Zanetti. Here is what he had to say about Pupi: “I played in a charity match that was organized by his foundation. He told me that I am a lot like him. When I kI played a charity match organized by his foundation. He called me a person close to Pupi and then my attorneys have perfected everything. When I knew that I could play with many champions, albeit for a charity match, I was happy. Obviously I also spoke with Zanetti, even though he was busy getting all the players , a very nice person, extremely available. ”
It is evident that Paulo Dybala appreciates Inter as a club. The problem is that the Argentine striker is another example of “The one who got away.” Inter must learn from this and never make these mistakes again. The problem is that the club are not signing enough youngsters, and giving them confidence. Once again, when will we learn…
