Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin believes that Inter are not likely to move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala on a free transfer this summer.
Writing in his column for Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, the journalist suggested that even on a free transfer Dybala’s wages will be excessive, and gave the view that the Nerazzurri will instead go all in for a centre-forward.
Dybala’s contract situation with Juventus remains up in the air, though things could soon become clearer with decisive contract extension talks with the Bianconeri reportedly slated for this week.
The Nerazzurri have been linked with a move for the 28-year-old on a free transfer should he not decide to extend with Juventus, and his signing for free could represent a significant opportunity.
However, Biasin feels that this is not something that Inter will rush into, as there are other areas in attack where they must do significant transfer business.
“In the past few days there has been much talk of a possible attempt by Marotta to bring Dybala to Inter,” he writes, “with an offer of a five-year deal worth €7.5 million net per season plus add-ons.”
“Well, this notion borders on Utopian,” he goes on. “Inter will not go crazy this summer, they’ll try to get a good number nine, maybe Scamacca, but you’d have to be kidding yourself to think that there’s room to accommodate wages that go up to almost €10 million gross.”
