Why Milan pose a serious threat to Inter in race for Dybala

Whilst it may have initially seemed like a crazy idea, Paulo Dybala could seriously pick Milan over the long-interested Inter.

The 28-year-old Argentinian forward officially became a free agent yesterday after his contract expired with Juventus, and now things are beginning to heat up as clubs fight to secure his signature. Whilst some foreign clubs are keen, especially in Spain, it seems as if he’s nearing a stay in Italy, with two clubs in particular fighting neck and neck for him.

As reported by Calciomercato.com, Milan are hoping to take advantage of the stalemate in the talks between Inter and Dybala; the Nerazzurri cannot close out a deal yet until some unneeded players like Arturo Vidal are sold, leaving them in a tough spot.

Elliott and RedBird are pushing for Dybala because he’s still young enough to shine at the club and he has an international profile, which may help attract new sponsors. Less convinced, however, is Paolo Maldini, who would prefer different investments.

The Rossoneri initiated talks with the 28-year-old at the end of March during an award ceremony, when Dybala spoke with sporting director Frederic Massara. The Argentinian forward is a fine of the project in Lombardy and joining the reigning champions may be the perfect way to relaunch his career.

Dybala has decided to wait for Inter for a few more days, and after that he’ll intensify the talks with other clubs, with Milan at the top of his list.

Elliott do not want to pay him €7m net per season but they could shore up an offer that’s fairly close with add-ons included.

  1. Well if we had a big budget, I’d go for different targets, too but considering our restraints I think he’ll be a good addition.

    If Maldini is not convinced though, then I’m gonna trust him.
