Dybala Buttoned-Up About His Future After Italy Clash

Paulo Dybala rounded the score in the Finalissima and did not give away much about his future afterward. The striker, who is available on a free after his Juventus exit, was quizzed by ESPN (via Ansa).

“I am serene. The people that work with me are handling the talks, while I focus on the matches with the national team. I know Serie A very well, as I have been playing in it for ten years. At the same time, I would not mind learning other championships, such as the Premier League or La Liga, which are very difficult. But I am fine in Italy. Lautaro Martinez is a phenomenal player and had a great showing today.”

According to SportMediaset, Dybala has turned down offers from Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund, and Sevilla. Inter continue to lead the race but need to clear space in their payroll by partying ways with Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal before making a formal offer. Roma currently represent the most credible alternative.

Francesco Totti continues to try recruiting La Joya (via Sky).

“I am not attempting to convince him, but I talked to him about a few things. I think he understood them but it is not just up to him to decide. If he wanted it, I would give him the no.10. However, as far as I know, he is not interested. He would pick no.21, as he did in the past.”

Our Take on the Dybala Race

Roma will have a chance until the ace puts pen-to-paper with Inter, but things seem headed that way. The more interesting question is how such pursuit intertwines with Romelu Lukaku’s one, considering that the Nerazzurri are determined to keep Lautaro Martinez. One of the three might be the odd man out.
