Inter will have to wait until Alexis Sanchez has officially left the club this summer before they can finish the signing of Paulo Dybala on a free transfer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri will not wrap up their agreement with Dybala until they have confirmed that Sanchez is off of their wage bill.

Sanchez already looks to have one foot out the door at Inter, as the club have let him know that he is not in their plans from next season onwards, and there is interest in him from Sevilla.

The Nerazzurri could facilitate a move for the Chilean to the Andalusian club or another destination by offering a severance payment, whilst Arturo Vidal looks to be on the verge of a move to Flamengo which will see his Nerazzurri contract come to in.

The Nerazzurri are in no hurry and have made it clear to Dybala that it is only this wait to clear space on the wage bill that has kept them from formalizing their offer, and that they should complete the signing after these players leave.
