Serie A giants Inter recently made an approach to potentially snatch Paulo Dybala from Roma but the attempt didn’t bear fruit.
Corriere della Sera state today that with Beppe Marotta and Inter looking at strikers, they called the agent of La Joya recently. Dybala has a contract valid until 30 June 2025 and there are two clauses in the agreement with Roma.
A lower release clause is valid for foreign clubs. Although the Giallorossi have the option to cancel it by increasing the Argentine’s salary, the last word belongs to the player. Then there is another clause that can be exercised by Italian clubs, set at €12 million, but in this case it is Roma’s willingness that will be decisive.
During the contact, Marotta wanted to find out about the potential cost of the move and the possibility that Dybala can leave Roma for a low cost. But the move didn’t materialise and Inter now see Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun as the first-choice for the striker’s role.
When it comes to Dybala’s renewal at Roma, his agents have spoken to the Giallorossi only through a telephonic conversation. And as things stand, his entourage doesn’t feel the need to renew his deal. Further developments are awaited.
