The chief spoke to reporters including TMW and Sky Sport Italia this evening while attending an event in Milan.
“I won’t deny that we met with Dybala’s representatives. We need to explore new avenues and Dybala is one of those we are currently looking at, but in order to reach a conclusion, we need the parties to converge in the same direction.
“There is no agreement right now.”
According to Sky Sport Italia, Inter are keeping Dybala on ice and haven’t even spoken to his representatives for 10 days because they are already bringing back Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea at a cost of €8m plus bonuses.
Even if Alexis Sanchez is sold, and that is by no means a guarantee right now with the Chile international rejecting several proposals, it would still leave Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku, Edin Dzeko, Joaquin Correa and Dybala.
That is too many forwards to sustain and Dzeko, despite earlier suggestions, is not on the market.
The idea would be to have four star strikers, plus a youngster probably promoted from the youth team to gain experience.
So unless Correa is also sold or at least loaned out at a fee, Inter cannot make room for La Joya.
They can also afford to wait, because Dybala has found no rush of clubs breaking down his door offering the kind of salary he is asking for, as Milan are reticent and Roma aren’t in the Champions League.
That is another issue, as Marotta also warned they “need the parties to converge in the same direction,” which is seen as a reference to agent Jorge Antun’s commission demands and the wage package of over €7m per season requested by Dybala.
