Italian journalist Fabio Caressa believes that Inter would have to offload Lautaro Martinez in order to sign Paulo Dybala this summer while being consistent with their financial objectives.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the journalist gave the view that the Nerazzurri’s situation would make Dybala a difficult target for them and suggested that Barcelona would be a more viable destination for the 28-year-old.
Dybala is set to leave Juventus this summer on a free transfer after it was confirmed that contract talks had ended with the Bianconeri.
The opportunity to sign the Argentine without a transfer fee is a significant one, though the finances involved would mean that a significant investment would still be required.
Caressa is of the view that Inter simply are not in the right position to make this kind of major investment, unless they were to make a significant sacrifice from the squad such as Martinez.
“We all respect Marotta, but we forget about Inter’s situation, which we know well,” he said. “Inter already have very big contracts that they would like to get rid of, it would seem like a contradiction to sign Dybala.”
He added that “They have to stay on a certain level, but if they want Dybala theyhave to sell Lautaro for me. Either Barcelona sign Lautaro or sign Dybala, this is the logic for me. Dybala is perfect for Barcelona right now.”
