Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta got in touch with the agents of Paulo Dybala to test the waters about what the terms to sign him would be. The Nerazzurri have been searching for a new striker since abandoning the chase of Romelu Lukaku.
According to Corriere della Sera, it doesn’t look like La Joya will depart despite the inquiry and some hiccups in the extension talks. The exec, who’s well familiar with the player, explored whether the Argentine could be signed for a cheap sum without going through Roma. It’s only partially the case.
While Dybala has two release clauses in his contract, one for foreign teams and the other for Italian ones, Roma would be able to neutralize it, should Inter really go after him, by raising his wages.
The Giallorossi have been trying to agree to a new contract with the camp of the striker, but they have been unable to so far. The entourage doesn’t see it as a priority since his salary is already set to increase simply because of his permanence due to previous clauses.
Our Take on Inter and Dybala
Considering how the whole Lukaku affair turned out, the Nerazzurri brass must surely be kicking themselves for picking the Belgian over him last summer. In this case, it’s likely nothing more than a phone call to mess with Roma.
