Inter made fresh contact with Juventus yesterday afternoon to discuss a potential swap deal involving Mauro Icardi and Paulo Dybala, according to FcInterNews.it.
Inter are pushing for a straight swap between the players while Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici wants the Nerazzurri to pay an extra €15-20 million with Icardi.
Dybala is ‘proud’ of the interest Beppe Marotta is showing in him while Icardi would only consider Juventus if he were ultimately to leave Inter this summer.
The parties are working to find a solution which satisfies everyone in the hope a deal can help both clubs balance their books.
Recent reports have suggested Dybala was not keen on a move to Inter but FcInterNews.it insisted La Joya has never vetoed a move to Milan.
The forward is in no hurry to resolve his future and hopes the upcoming Copa America will help him increase his market value, amid rumoured interest from Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Maurizio Sarri could yet ask to keep hold of Dybala when he is appointed Juventus’ new head coach but this seems unlikely.
Icardi’s representatives are similarly calm about the striker’s future and remain hopeful Maurito can convince Antonio Conte can give him another chance in preseason.
This seems almost impossible, though, with Inter having decided once and for all to get rid of their former captain.
