The 28-year-old Argentinian forward ended a seven-year spell with Juventus in the summer, forcing him to find a new home. The player didn’t want to leave Serie A and Inter quickly became the favourites to secure his signature, with his agent Jorge Antun meeting with the Milanese club on multiple occasions.
Despite their interest, Inter changed focus and ultimately decided to bring back Lukaku from Chelsea in an €8m loan deal, keen to be reunited with the Belgian a year after his €113m move to the Blues. This allowed Roma to swoop in and agree a three-year deal with Dybala worth around €4.2m net per season.
The 28-year-old has started life in the Italian capital well. He has netted three goals and provided two assists in his first six Serie A appearances under Jose Mourinho, looking fired up after a disappointing end to life in Turin.
Things have been a little more negative for Lukaku, who scored one goal and provided one assist before missing over a month’s action due to a muscle injury. He has been ruled out of the upcoming clash against the Giallorossi, a game that Dybala is ready to take part in after recovering from his own issue.
Dybala now has the opportunity to make Inter regret their choice in tomorrow’s clash, showing the Nerazzurri why they should’ve brought him in instead of focusing their efforts on Lukaku.
