Inter president Steven Zhang is fully convinced in the value of completing a move for Paulo Dybala on a free transfer, both for what the player brings on the pitch and off of it.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri President believes that in addition to the 28-year-old’s quality on the pitch, he will also be very marketable.

Zhang has always been behind the Nerazzurri’s pursuit of Dybala, green lighting a move early and giving his approval to a very aggressive strategy which saw them convince the Argentine that they are the right destination despite some interest from La Liga.

The President feels that a signing like Dybala, in addition to being one which the club directors and coach Simone Inzaghi are convinced will have a big impact on the pitch, can benefit the team in other ways as well.

If and when the deal goes through, Dybala’s move on a free transfer to Inter from Serie A rivals Juventus would be one of the most high profile moves of the summer, not just in Italy but perhaps in all of Europe.

Zhang is happy to invest in a deal which would raise the Nerazzurri’s profile and show that they can still attract top talent, whilst the public profile of the player could attract more supporters and interest in the club.
