Inter Vice-President Javier Zanetti has acknowledged that the Nerazzurri are in talks for the signing of Paulo Dybala.

Speaking to Argentine broadcaster D-Sports Radio, Zanetti talked about Dybala whose talents he praised, and also noted that the Nerazzurri have a long tradition of signing top Argentine players.

Dybala has been strongly linked with a move to Inter for some time, and if he were to arrive it would be to a team that already has two of Argentina’s other international team forwards in it, in the form of Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa.

These are hardly the first Argentine strikers to have played for the Nerazzurri, with the likes of Julio Cruz, Hernan Crespo, Diego Milito, and Mauro Icardi having also represented the club, while midfielder Esteban Cambiasso is just one more example of a prominent Argentine to have played for Inter.

Zanetti himself captained the Nerazzurri for more than a decade and made nearly a thousand appearances for the club, and he is a fan of Dybala.

“We’re in talks with him,” he acknowledged when asked about Dybala, “he’s a great player who will certainly represent us [Argentina] at the World Cup.”

“I admire Paulo and wish him the best in his career,” he added. “Inter have always had many South Americans, especially Argentines, which means that Argentines are special to us.”

“Even now there are some in the team,” he noted, “thinking about Lautaro and Correa. The club has confidence in Argentine players.”
