Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is aiming to sign Paulo Dybala on a free transfer this summer without having to sell Lautaro Martinez.
This according to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri executive wants to have both of the Argentines in the squad at the start of next season.
Marotta is in continual contact with Dybala’s agent Jorge Antun and has made very clear that the Nerazzurri would welcome a move for the 28-year-old, while the player is also interested in joining Inter.
Even though the Argentine would be available on a free transfer, his wages would still be a major investment, with the forward seeking close to the €8 million net per season plus €2 million in add-ons he had tentatively agreed with Juventus in the fall.
However, Marotta feels that the club can accommodate the move even without the influx of cash that Martinez’s sale would bring, though there is no rush with Dybala likely to wait until August to decide his destination.
