PM: An opening appears for Milan – why talks between Dybala and Inter have slowed

By Oliver Fisher -

Inter have some doubts about the Paulo Dybala operation and that has put AC Milan and other clubs on alert, according to a report.

PianetaMilan reports how the negotiations between Dybala and Inter began practically a month ago with the player’s agent Jorge Antun and an intermediary Giacomo Petralito meeting Beppe Marotta at the Inter headquarters.

However, for whatever reason Inter have not yet closed the deal. The potential arrival of Romelu Lukaku has absorbed energy, time and could absord money, but there are other matters that have influenced the slowdown too.

Until a couple of Edin Džeko, Joaquín Correa and Alexis Sánchez leave, there will be no room for Dybala. Moreover, there are doubts about the contractual proposal and whether it is a three-year contract at €7m net per year or a four-year deal on a lower salary.

It is on the issue of bonuses that talks have slowed because a lot is dependent on the Argentine’s performances and on how much he plays, because the Nerazzurri are not fully convinced by Dybala’s physical condition after the last two years at Juventus.

This is the main reason why the deal has slowed to a halt and is currently on standby, which has led the player’s agents to offer Dybala to other clubs as well, and Milan can now go back to thinking about ‘La Joya’.

  1. They can’t pay for all those attackers + Lukaku and Dybala. Inter is not Real Madrid financially and I would sign back Lukaku over Dybala any day. He already played amazing there.

    1. Fingers crossed we do actually go for him because in my opinion we won’t need to buy a midfielder at that point since we’ll have Pobega for the CM spot as well, so in my opinion we could buy: Dybala (free), Origi (free), De Ketelaere (30-35m), Botman (30-35)

    2. imo Lukaku was the impetus that landed the Scudetto to Inter two years ago, personally can not figure what went wrong at Chelsea….him coming back may be all it takes for us to get Dybala

      1. Oh what went wrong at Chelsea was that Tuchel had no idea how to use him, thought he was a 9.
        Inter would be very good if they got him back.

  2. Milan is not giving (yet) Leao a 7 million contract he is asking for…And Leao would bring a large amount of money some day to the club…..So I seriously doubt Milan would pay 7 million for Dybala.
    Not to mention Redbird,new owners who are not keen in spending any significant amount of cash.

  3. We should go after Dybala. Just because he and his entourage are asking for 7M/year doesn’t mean he’s going to get that. We can get involved, offer less, also try to make his compensation tied to bonuses for games played/goals/assists, etc.

    He is a fantastic player. He is amazing at RW when he cuts inside to his favorite left foot and can curl in those shots from outside the box to the top left corner so well like Arjen Robben — Suso was like a poor man’s Dybala.

    Dybala can also play CAM. So our 2 weakest positions this past year with Diaz at CAM and Saele/Messias are the positions he can step in and immediately raise the level of play significantly.

    IMO, I’d rather have Dybala play RW because I feel like we have better options/answers at CAM position with existing players (Krunic, not Diaz) and returning loanees. Saele and Messias were a disaster. We need RW help more than any other position, it is clear.

    1. I am not ready to completely give up on Saele. yet, would rather have him come off bench with De Kete at RW and Dybala at CAM. Dybala floats around alot more than usual. If Dybala at RW let Rebic be CAM, played there when at Eintracht. If Dybala is as good as we think then we should get him to prevent Inter from having him.

  4. Comon guys.
    Players In:
    CF – Origi (free), Belotti (free)
    AM – Dybala (free)
    RW – De Ketelaere (€30-35m)
    CM – Sanches (€30m)
    CM – Enzo Fernandez (€15m)

    TOTAL SPENT = €80m (assuming maximum transfer fees as reported)

    Players Out:
    Saelemaekers – €15m
    Castillejo – €3m
    Leo Duarte – €2m
    Ballo-Touré – €2m
    Caldara – €2m
    Hauge – €12m

    TOTAL RECEIVED = €36m (assuming minimum transfer fees as reported)

    This indicates an addition of about €44m as transfer budget, which may still be adequate as the transfer budget available.

    * This assumption was made in regarding Ibrahimovic not returning (I sincerely believe he’s done noble, and it’s time to look past him.

    * Ideally, a CB (Bremer or Botman) should be purchased so Kalulu can cement the RB position in the near future, but because funds constraints, had to ignore.

    1. P.S
      * The purchase of Enzo Fernandez was made in anticipation that Krunic can finally be sold for a region between €5-10m. This to me will be a massive upgrade.

        1. Yeah, you still have a point, but I think without being over optimistic, that given the reported transfer budget, we can sign both Sanches and CDK.

          But ideally, the CDK operation would require between €40-45m in transfer fees and around 10-15m in wages for a 4-5year contract, which brings it to around €55-60m deal.

          If we had that kind of money, signing Osuman Dembele on a free transfer with a €15m salary for a 4 year deal has the same €60 effect on the balance sheet. This is me thinking out loud though and over optimistic, even though I know that salary will cause unrest in the dressing room.

          The same goes for Dybala, imagine signing him on a free transfer on a €7m salary for 4 years, amounting to a €28m deal on the balance sheet, I don’t think that is by any means expensive for a player like Dybala.

          Imagine having Leao, Dybala and Osumane Dembele, that would be the most lethal and fearsome attack in the league and a strong contender in the CL.

  5. Dybala for free would be an amazing signing for Milan. He’s precisely the kind of player we need as well. Get another striker like Scamacca or someone similar and our attack would be complete..

  6. Cheap solution for AMF and can play as RW too. If we sign him ,just return Brahim to real Madrid and give him number 10 . Adili are the back up for AMF . We don’t have choice to sign free transfer player since our budget only 50m euro+ sale money from player
