Inter would be able to accommodate the wages of Paulo Dybala on a free transfer from Juventus this summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who report that the Nerazzurri can afford the Argentine’s wages on their wage bill due to the players on expensive contracts set to depart during the summer.
Dybala would not come cheap in spite of the prospect of signing without a transfer fee should his contract with the Bianconeri run out, as the Nerazzurri would have to offer significant wages in order to convince him.
However, the likes of Matias Vecino and Arturo Vidal are already set to depart the club at the end of June, taking with them their high wages, while the club also no longer have Christian Eriksen on their wage bill.
Alexis Sanchez is another of the Nerazzurri’s highest wage-earners, and while the 33-year-old’s contract is set to run until the end of June 2023, the club could pay out the €4.5 million severance fee to terminate his contract.
Inter also must consider investing in a long-term successor to Edin Dzeko in attack, a different profile from that of Dybala, but they could well sign Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca for a fee of €30-35 million and still afford the Argentine’s wages.
Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid are also highly interested in the prospect of signing Dybala on a free transfer should he be available, the Corriere reports, but the Nerazzurri could have an advantage in the fact that CEO Beppe Marotta already has a positive relationship with the 28-year-old.
