Roma Gain Minor Momentum in Complex Chase of Dybala

The future of Paulo Dybala remains largely undetermined, which leaves an opening for all suitors, including those that were not among the early favorites like Roma. His entourage spent some time in the Italian Capital for the Coppa Italia final. Despite previous contacts, there was no in-person meeting with the Giallorossi brass, Corriere dello Sport informs.

The Friedkin family has put on hold the transfer market matters to see how the season ends. Winning the European Conference League, or qualifying for Europa League through Serie A, will significantly impact the plans.

According to the publication, Dybala is looking for a team where he could have a starring role, which would be the case at Roma. José Mourinho went out of his way to praise him after a previous match against Juventus: “You are a top player, and I would love to coach somebody like you.”

Inter maintain the inside track for the Argentinian striker. However, they might take the final step only if Lautaro Martinez departed. They are not particularly keen on selling their star. It will depend on the size of the offers they receive. If he stayed, their priority would be to find a young center-forward to pair up with Edin Dzeko.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, La Joya is primarily eyeing teams Champions League contenders or English sides. Atletico Madrid have the Nerazzurri ace atop their preferences. Manchester United’s Erik Ten Hag did not list him among his primary targets in his early talks with his new team. Barcelona are focusing on Robert Lewandowski and would seek another pure striker if they struck out. Arsenal lead the race for Gabriel Jesus. There have not been actual offers yet. If the market did not heat up, Dybala would be open to considering Roma as a fallback plan.
