Paulo Dybala and Juventus are in the midst of a crisis after their seven-year working partnership came to an end.
The deal reached between the two parties was broken apart by the club in less than four months, and Dybala is likely to leave the captain’s armband and number 10 shirt in the dressing room.
Dybala is now on the market and must feel deceived by Juventus, as he would have accepted any offer.
To celebrate the signing of a new deal, he had already purchased an expensive €900 bag for each of his teammates and the club’s coaching team.
With 113 goals in seven years at Torino, he had become a symbol of the club, but now he must prove he is the perfect guy for Inter Milan.
Inter intends to consider any Lautaro Martinez offers, knowing that they can replace ‘Toro’ with ‘Joya’.
Dybala would be an excellent fit for Inter Milan and would be a best alternative for Martinez, who has a wide variety of offers from Spain and England.
According to Juventus sources, the Argentine player’s agency requested a commission similar to that of Dusan Vlahovic’s agent for the contract extension.
One of the key reasons for CEO Maurizio Arrivabene and Juventus to rule out any prospect of a deal with Dybala was because of this.
It created a new difficulty for Inter, who had already made Dybala an offer of €7 million per year for five years, but had failed to account for the fee demanded by the player’s entourage.
Giuseppe Marotta already has a strategy in place to attract Dybala to Inter, since releasing Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal would free up funds to offer Dybala the contract he desires.
But a lot will depend on Dybala’s desire, as he currently does not appear willing to move to Inter to take revenge on Juventus.
Dybala and Juventus fans have a terrific bond, and he acknowledged in December, as reported by Tuttosport, that he did not want to betray his fans like Antonio Conte, Asamoah, and Vidal have in the past.
However, Marotta’s goal to turn Inter into a colony of former Juventus players and his rage over his contract not being renewed could be the key to unlocking the deal.
