Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi feels that if the Nerazzurri were to sign Paulo Dybala, they would need to tactically reshape how they play in attack.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in yesterday’s print edition, the former defender gave the view that the Argentine can only play alongside a more advanced striker and that the Nerazzurri would have to alter the style of play to fit him in.
Dybala’s quality is beyond doubt, and the Nerazzurri’s interest in the 28-year-old looks to be a matter of adding a player to the team who can unlock matches in attack and add fluidity to their game.
However, the Argentine is not a player who leads the line in the traditional sense, and it is far from clear how he would be able to fit into the team alongside the forwards who are already in the squad.
Bergomi gave the view that he could fit in “With other strikers, yes – otherwise, who plays in behind?”
“You always need to have have control over the game,” he added, “but with the 3-5-2 you can’t do it. To integrate him, you’d need to change something with how the team attacks.”
