Juventus are at their worst. Sportingly, the Old Lady is certainly qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League (she will face Villarreal), but in Serie A, it has been a shipwreck for a year and a half. Fourth last season, the Piedmontese club is now in fifth place in the standings, eleven lengths from the leader of the Inter team.
Nerazzurri who recently hurt him a little more by beating him in the final of the Italian Supercup. And today the Gazzetta dello Sport teaches us that the training coached by Simone Inzaghi could deal the deathblow… on the transfer market. Since yesterday, an Argentinian journalist from TyC Sports announced that Paulo Dybala would refuse to extend his contract with Juventus.
Tied to the Bianconeri until next June, the 28-year-old was supposed to be Turin’s new king, even more so after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure. But recent statements by the CEO of Juve, Maurizio Arrivabene, showed that the case was far from closed. « Dybala is Juve’s number 10, De Ligt is a great player, they have to do their job and we do ours. Relations are calm, but they must, like everyone else, show their attachment to the jersey on the pitch. »
Inter want to make a huge move
And that, Beppe Marotta has understood. The pink paper newspaper indeed explains that after leaving Piedmont to go to Inter, the sports director nerazzurro could commit a new “rudeness” vis-à-vis the Bianconeri. And what rudeness! By stealing Dybala from the Turin enemy without paying him a penny, Inter would sign a resounding coup sportingly and in the media. Already interested in Joya in 2019, when Antonio Conte was on the bench, will Marotta finally achieve his goals?
Such a scenario is possible, although it’s worth remembering that Inter won’t be able to offer the Argentine a huge pay rise. The Lombards have already tried hard to extend Lautaro Martinez and Marcelo Brozovic. Currently paid at €7 million per season, Dybala already knows that it is not Inter who will come to offer him to reach the symbolic bar of €10 million annually, even if several departures (Arturo Vidal, Matias Vecino) will free up payroll. The soap opera of the summer in Serie A promises to be incredible.
