“Of course we hope that Paulo Dybala can sign for us”


Inter CEO Beppe Marotta hopes the club can agree a deal for Paulo Dybala this summer, although he’s not sure if that will happen.

Speaking at the L’Amico Atletico event, as reported by FCInterNewsMarotta spoke about the Nerazzurri’s pursuit of the 28-year-old, explaining that they come into the summer hoping he will play in an Inter shirt.

Dybala has been one of the names most linked with Inter this summer, with the Argentine’s availability on a free transfer meaning they could rush into what would be one of the most high-profile deals in the game. summer in Serie A.

The club have not sent any overt signals that they expect the deal to go ahead, nor have the player and his representatives, although reports suggest talks are underway and it is a very real possibility.

Marotta was candid, speaking candidly about Dybala being a target, but he gave no indication that a signing was close or that talks were at any particular stage.

“In sport sometimes we have to accept what I call little white lies,” he said. “But of course we hope Paulo Dybala can play for us.”

When asked what his favorite Nerazzurri win was, Marotta replied that “Every time you win something you feel like it’s the best, but you’re already looking to the next challenge.”

“This year, winning the Scudetto would have been a real benchmark, he continues, unfortunately we did not succeed. We are focused on next season, we are setting important goals because the stature of this club forces us to think big.

“Inter are among the greatest teams in world football,” he added.

On the disparity between the Premier League and Serie A at the moment, he said “the gap is widening, our power has gone down.” We found ourselves off guard when the turning point came and got stuck in the patronage model of the 1990s.”

“In Milan there were the Moratti and Berlusconi families,” he continued, “today Inter and Milan have foreign owners who have brought in money and a new business model.”

“So there was a gap that grew, we weren’t able to leverage the resources that we had,” he added. “Now the best players are leaving Serie A to play in other countries, that’s why we have to rediscover competitiveness, which cannot be achieved by spending alone.”

“We must also bet on competence and innovation,” he explained.
