Inter will need time to get things ready to complete the signing of Paulo Dybala on a free transfer.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that while the Nerazzurri are still keen on bringing the 28-year-old, they will not be able to do so right away.

Talks between Inter and Dybala’s representatives are currently on standby, and while there is a broad agreement between the parties on a deal, there are financial details yet to be worked out.

Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta will meet with the 28-year-old’s representatives soon, and he will tell them to be patient, as right now the circumstances at the club would not make signing him feasible.

The imminent arrival of Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea means that even with the anticipated departure of Alexis Sanchez, there is still no room to sign another forward.

Edin Dzeko is the likelier candidate to be offloaded than Joaquin Correa, who remains an important player in the eyes of coach Simone Inzaghi, but the Bosnian will not be pushed out, and at the moment there is not significant interest in signing him.

Inter will communicate to Dybala and his representatives that they are doing everything they can to get prepared to sign him for next season, but at the moment he must sit tight.
