AC Milan are waiting in the wings to try and sign Paulo Dybala on a free transfer if Inter do not snap him up by mid-July.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Rossoneri are monitoring the situation whilst the Nerazzurri attempt to get themselves in a position where they can sign the 28-year-old by offloading attackers.

Inter cannot move for Dybala until room has been made in their squad, particularly following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea, and this is the priority.

The Nerazzurri had looked close to signing Dybala just a couple weeks ago, and they are still a destination he would like, but they could miss out on him if they cannot offload Alexis Sanchez and potentially another forward in time.

Should the Argentine lose patience and become ready to accept other, lower offers, Milan would be ready to put forward a contract offer worth €4 million net per season to try and convince him.
