Former Inter Defender Paganini Endorses ‘Ideal’ Icardi-Dybala Swap Deal

Inter’s bid to swap Mauro Icardi for Paulo Dybala received the full backing of one of their former defenders today.

Massimo Paganin made more than 100 appearances for the Nerazzurri in the 1990s, helping them win the UEFA Cup under interim coach Gianpiero Marini.

Juventus do not seem willing to hand Dybala over to their bitter rivals, but time is running out and they might be forced to do so before the transfer window closes.

Paganin told TMW Radio: “The swap deal would be ideal for both clubs. Dybala would be perfect for Inter’s attacking play, but Juventus would benefit from the switch as well.”

Inter spent more than two months talking to Manchester United before Romelu Lukaku eventually made his move to Italy.

However, Paganini approved of the club’s strategy in negotiations and backed the Belgian to succeed in Serie A.

“Lukaku immediately wanted to join Inter and he kept his word,” he added.

“He seems like a person of great depth and now we’ll see how well he adapts to life in the Italian league.

“Inter are doing good business and have signed a key player in each zone of the pitch. They still have a little work to do though, such as signing a second striker. Matteo Politano struggles in Conte’s system so it would probably be better to find him another club.

“They need to close the gap to Juventus and Napoli and they’re making the right signings, which have been well thought out.”
