Altobelli explains why Dybala “would be perfect” for Inter

Former Inter striker Alessandro Altobelli feels that Paulo Dybala “would be perfect” for the Nerazzurri following reported interest.

The 28-year-old Argentinian forward seems destined to leave Juventus when his contract expires at the end of this season, with the two parties not agreeing to a renewal. Many top clubs are interested in signing him on a free transfer and the latest reports suggest that Inter are one of these teams.

Speaking in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Altobelli gave his opinion on Dybala’s links with Inter.

“Someone like Dybala is signed regardless, whether he’s needed or not. In the case of Inter, however, he would be perfect, even if the Nerazzurri are now in a good place.

“Dybala, however, is someone who makes a difference, no question. He’s a top player in Europe and it’s right that every team that aspires to great targets likes him.”

He touched on where Simone Inzaghi could deploy Dybala in his 3-5-2 system.

“Right now Inter are almost perfect, it’s difficult to say, also because everything works wonderfully in Inzaghi’s systems. In his 3-5-2 Dybala would play as a second striker, it doesn’t matter if with Dzeko or Lautaro.

“I mean, the starter remains Toro without a doubt. In perspective I imagine an all-Argentine attack as the first option, with Lautaro up front and Dybala right behind, they would be a fantastic pair. But Dybala could easily play with Dzeko as well.”

Altobelli highlighted what Inter would gain and Juventus would lose should the move take place.

“Easy. Inter would gain a top player, Juve would lose a player capable of making a difference, someone difficult to mark and contain. He’s one of the last number 10s, one of those who skips past the man and scores.”

Finally, Altobelli remembered his own switch from Inter to Juventus and how the fans would react should Dybala’s move to the Lombardy capital take place.

“I don’t think the fans care about these things any more. I think they simply look at the type of player, the characteristics. In general, Juve fans would be sorry to lose a strong player and Nerazzurri fans would be happy to get a champion.

“Certain rivalries are no longer felt today as they once were. The example is Ibra, give him any shirt and any fan will applaud him no matter what team he comes from, simply because he makes a difference. I don’t believe in flags any more, they haven’t existed for a long time.”

The 28-year-old Dybala has performed well for the Bianconeri this season, despite some injury troubles. The Argentinian forward has scored six goals and provided three assists in 15 Serie A appearances this campaign.

  1. RYAN

    If Inter give him 10 millions a year for five years and that is all he wants, he can go. Don’t get me wrong. He is a top player but he is also very inconsistent and injury prone at the age of 28.

    lightweight & not a leader..let him go if he wnats to!!

  3. Jon

    He should have left when Ronaldo came to juve, his star was rising then it had to give way to the Ronaldo circus.

    How much better were juve with him and higuain


    Dybala makes the difference in Serie A, but we`ve all seen him choke on top level [UCL], where he failed to make a difference.

    Simply not worth the money he is asking for, Marotta is just trolling juBentus by playing 4D chess to force Serie B champions to overpay.

    For once I agree with you clown face, but let’s hope Marotta has a brain fade and offers him that amount and then watches him sit in the medical centre or be peripheral in big games.

    I like to believe that Juventus would not sell him if he was fully fit, and that they would NEVER sell him to Inter… and that the player himself would not join them. He won many titles and wore the captains arm band


    P$G will most probably see Mbappe leave for free, they should be all over Dybala`s agent right now.
