Inter Pause Talks with Dybala to Finalize Lukaku Deal

Inter have decided to prioritize the negotiation with Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku over their pursuit of Paulo Dybala. They remain the favorites for the Argentinian striker as well, but it will take a bit longer to sign him.

As per Sky, there have not been further contacts following the most recent meeting. There were some tensions on his bonuses, although they should be solvable with further summits. On the other hand, the Nerazzurri will have a logjam up front once they reunite with the Belgian star.

Inter could wait until they offload Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez before signing Dybala, Tuttomercatoweb reports. According to Mediaset, the Bosnian has drawn preliminary interest from Juventus, Real Madrid, and Valencia. He has just one more year on his contract. Joaquin Correa has suitors, but Simone Inzaghi would rather keep him and part ways with the former Roma striker, Corriere dello Sport adds.

El Nino Maravilla received a call from Jorge Sampaoli, who will try to bring him to Olympique Marseille, La Tercera informs. River Plate and Sevilla are eyeing him too. The veteran would love to return to Barcelona, TuttoSport informs.

Our Take on Inter Picking Lukaku over Dybala

The two will likely wind up joining both, but the management is facing a race against the clock to complete the transfer of the former, as they need to get it done by June 30th. Instead, they can take their time for La Joya, whose agent is a hard nut, especially because no other team is really in the picture. Dzeko would be quite redundant with Lukaku back. It would not be overly surprising to see Correa gone down the line too. But his price tag for him was significant, and it is tough to recoup it.
