Despite rumours suggesting that Paulo Dybala has agreed to join Inter Milan as a free agent this summer, reputable sources say that a deal is far from completion.
Dybala has enjoyed a productive season in Turin but the Juventus hierarchy opted against signing La Joya to a lucrative new extension after pulling out of their initial agreement last autumn.
It was revealed at the end of March that he wouldn’t be renewing with the Bianconeri following seven successful years with the club that saw him forge an impressive reputation across the continent.
However, the Argentine would all but destroy his relationship with Juventini should he opt to join the club’s Derby d’Italia rivals this summer.
Inter Milan are interested in signing Paulo Dybala this summer but a deal isn’t done yet
Beppe Marotta’s Inter are believed to be in the race for Dybala’s signature and La Gazzetta dello Sport reported late on Tuesday that the Juventus playmaker had agreed to join the Nerazzurri at the end of the season.
The report added that La Joya would sign a four-year deal with the club worth €6m a year plus add ons.
However, the player’s agent, Jorge Antun, who was a protagonist throughout Dybala’s contract saga with Juventus, has said that no agreement has been reached with any club.
“I deny any kind of agreement with any club, as of today. No agreement has been reached with Italian or foreign clubs yet,” he said, with Fabrizio Romano confirming that a deal with Inter is not yet done.
Nevertheless, Inter appear to be the clear front-runners for Dybala’s signature at this stage. They could move on from Lautaro Martinez this summer and Il Toro’s compatriot could be the ideal replacement for Simone Inzaghi.
While a deal is yet to be struck, Gazzetta’s timely speculation has added a little more spice to next Wednesday’s Coppa Italia final between the Derby d’Italia rivals.
