There has been lots of media speculation concerning a possible swap deal between Inter and Juventus involving Mauro Icardi and Paulo Dybala but for a multitude of reasons, it has been slow to take off and Gazzetta dello Sport have explained what they believe to be the main reason.
While Juventus are keen to land Icardi and Inter are equally as keen to bring in Dybala, their mutual reluctance to do business due to being arch rivals is one of the reasons behind things not taking off.
The breakdown in relations between Juventus director Fabio Paratici and Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta has not helped matters either. Marotta left Juventus at the end of the year as relations soured with Paratici, who he had worked with for a long time both at Juventus and Sampdoria before that.
The report from the Milan based newspaper goes on to state that at least for the time being, it is difficult to imagine the clubs make any further attempts to make such a move happen.
