Legednary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi feels that it is far from obvious that Paulo Dybala would be a good signing for the Nerazzurri.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the former defender gave the view that it would be strange to see the Argentine playing for a club other than Juventus in Serie A and that he wouldn’t be a natural tactical fit at Inter.
With Dybala’s departure from the Bianconeri on a free transfer in the summer confirmed, Inter are one of the clubs with the strongest interest in signing him.
The 28-year-old’s undoubted quality mean that his availability could represent a significant opportunity to strengthen in attack for almost any club regardless of exactly how he is used by a team.
However, Bergomi feels that the move for him could be an awkward one which would unbalance the Nerazzurri in other ways, and that they would not be strengthened on balance by his arrival.
“I still think of Dybala as a Juve player and I find it hard to see him are another Italian team,” he mused. “It’s true that he’s played there for seven years and we can’t yet say that he’s a real symbol, but in Italy Dybala is Juve.”
He went on that “I’m sorry to see it, as I am sorry for Donnarumma and as I am sorry for Insigne. He’s a great player and I’m sorry to see it end this way.”
Moving on to a possible move for the 28-year-old by the Nerazzurri, Bergomi gave the view that “If Inter were to sell Lautaro to make room for him, then Dybala would need a different player than Dzeko alongside him, so Inter would then need to sign a player with that profile.”
“He is technically good and can make the decisive pass,” he continued, “but if he doesn’t have the right partner with the runs in behind, who is getting on the end of his passes?”
“Inter attack a lot through wide areas,” he went on, “but in that sense he’s missing a point of reference and needs a different strike partner.”
“At the moment I don’t see him being very useful at Inter,” Bergomi suggested, “even if I recognize that he can play as the second striker in a 3-5-2 with another striker.”
“Today, in my opinion, Dybala would encounter some problems in that squad,” he concluded.
