Simone Inzaghi was vocal about keeping Joaquin Correa at the club last summer when his departure could have sealed the signing of Paulo Dybala on a free transfer, according to a report in the Italian print media today.

As has been highlighted by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the €31 million price tag that is on the head of Joaquin Correa makes it very hard to view him through any other lens. 

He has not lived up to that price but Simone Inzaghi has always been his most vocal supporter and insisted that the Argentine will come good.

He doubled down on this in the summer when there was the chance of accelerating a departure for Joaquin Correa. By doing that, Inter could have freed up the space and money for Paulo Dybala to join the club.

Simone Inzaghi made it clear that he wants to keep the Argentine though, and Paulo Dybala ended up moving to AS Roma instead and has been in good form.
