GdS: Maldini and Milan could hijack Inter’s pursuit of Dybala – contacts expected

By Isak Möller -

Paolo Maldini has renewed his contract with AC Milan and work on the market can now begin. The director is keen on reinforcing the team and one of the players on his mind is Paulo Dybala, now a free agent. 

The Argentine star has been in talks with city rivals Inter for a long time but the negotiations have seemingly stalled a bit. Milan, therefore, could pounce on the opportunity and express their interest formally.

According to today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanLive), Stefano Pioli wants a world-class playmaker for the attacking trio and Maldini is on the case. In the next few days, he will make a concrete attempt for Dybala, initiating talks with his agent.

Having said that, Dybala would have to settle for a lower salary than the €6m offered by Inter. On the other hand, Milan would be able to close the deal quickly under the right conditions, unlike their rivals.

Milan could also opt for a profile from abroad, such as Asensio, De Ketelaere or Ziyech as the growth decree (tax relief) is still available for a few more days.

  1. Get Dybala now and try to snatch CDK as well. Then there would be no need to buy Diaz next summer. And hopefully Dybala would be the RW and CDK the #10 with Diaz (and Dybala) as the backup.

    1. What are you talking about.. Dybala can’t play right.. he is number 10. And is between Hakim or marco for the right.

      1. Sure Dybala can’t play the RW position. He is a typical # 10 who will fit the 4231 perfectly. He can score and also provide alot of assist for ST. CDK is a bit dicey so Ziyech should be the option now.
        Time is not on our side.

      2. He hasn’t played on the right but that doesn’t mean he CANNOT play on the right. He is left footed and has everything it takes to make it as a RW.

        1. Andrea Pirlo was #10 before joining Milan. And what is the position where he became the best in the world? NOT as #10 I can tell you that. 😉

  2. Dybala……he floats around anyway,often on the right and at the 10, do not overthink the assigned positions, open up the checkbook and sign Dybala, yes he is older, skills diminished but not to the dollar difference between him and CDK……time is running out, 6m might seem too much until he goes to another team and you have to play against him,sometimes I try to evaluate players by the threat they present versus their performance. Ibra injured, hobbling around, but when he entered the games last year the opposition took notice of the “threat”

    1. Exactly! Someone else has seen him play as well to know he can make it as a RW too. 😉

      And he could play as a striker too. Very versatile player. Even though I do hate him. One of the most annoying players/divers/whiners in the league but one cannot deny his quality as a player.

  3. Dybala has ABSOLUTELY PLAYED ON THE RIGHT. Many many times. That’s where he played MOST earlier in his career and even THIS SEASON that just finished, he played on RW for Juve. As a teenager, the most common highlight we would see of Dybala was him imitating Arjen Robben / Suso going down right, cutting inside to his favorite left foot and then curling in a shot from outside the box into the top left corner.

    Yes, of course in more recent year’s he’s played the 10 more for Juve; but he is 100% capable of playing on the right and actually has a lot of experience there.

  4. OK, I decided to start doing some research to see if I was right or wrong about Dybala — and i was WRONG to say that recently he played more as a 10 recently than right side. I said he started his career on right but plays more centrally now; but even now this season, he STILL plays more on the right.
    I just looked at August, Sept, October and in 6 out of his first 7 matches he played ALL RIGHT SIDE, and not centrally.

    Dybala this season:
    August: started 2 matches on right side (Udinese and Empoli), only 1 match he played centrally v Atalanta.

    right side: Malmo, Milan, Spezia, Sampdoria — started ALL FOUR MATCHES on right side

    missed first half of month w/ injury. BUT, his first match back, he played on right side v Inter merda and he scored game tying goal.
    Versus both Sassuolo and Verona, both started on the right side.

    I don’t have time to check rest of the season now; but anyway, this proves that everyone posting here who thinks Dybala can’t or hasn’t played on the right is completely and totally wrong and don’t know what they’re talking about.
