Inter will meet with representatives of Paulo Dybala by the end of this week to update them on the situation with his signing on a free transfer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 28-year-old is still waiting for the Nerazzurri to green light his signing.

Dybala is ready to sign for Inter, and the club wouldn’t have to do much to get the deal wrapped up, but as of now the process is on standby due to the priority having been getting a loan deal for Romelu Lukaku done with Chelsea.

With Lukaku signing, the Nerazzurri will have five senior forwards in the squad even after Alexis Sanchez and Andrea Pinamonti depart as anticipated.

One of Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa would almost certainly have to depart to make space in the squad for Dybala, with the former the likelier candidate but not a great deal of transfer interest in the Bosnian at the moment.

At any rate, things remain as they always have been between Inter and Dybala and his representatives, and Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta will take the opportunity to explain the situation and give a sense of what will have to happen before the Argentine’s signing can take place.
