Italian agent Dario Canovi feels that the wages that Juventus forward Paulo Dybala would demand are excessive given his injury history and inconsistency.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster New Sound Level 90FM, the agent suggested that the Argentine doesn’t offer the kind of consistent performances over a full season that would be warranted by a top earner.
Dybala is set to depart from the Bianconeri on a free transfer at the end of the current season, and Inter are one of the main names linked with a possible swoop for him on a free transfer.
The 28-year-old also has suitors in the Premier League and La Liga, while the Nerazzurri are not the only Italian club with a possible interest in bringing him in.
Roma, Napoli, and AC Milan have all been linked as possible destination, and Canovi spoke particularly about the Giallorossi, arguing that even on a free transfer Dybala wouldn’t be worth the risk.
“When we talk about a salary as high as €7-8 million, which is what Dybala will expect, I don’t know if Roma will be able to do it, because then they would have to pay more other members of the squad too, so it seems unlikely to me,” he said.
He added that “I have no doubts about Dybala’s quality, but I have some doubts about him physically,” he added.
“That Dybala is a player who can make an impact regularly is not beyond doubt, so paying him so much without having guarantees seems to me risky for a team like Roma who play fifty matches a season,” he went on.
