Paulo Dybala

Imagine you`re in Ausilio/Marotta`s shoes, would you offer Dybala a contract?

  • Yes - unlock defences and add value: creativity, individual brilliance, attacking outside the box

  • No - serious doubts about his fitness and contribution when it matters the most

He'd be a good 3rd option, but I'm not sure he'd be satisfied with that.
Out of the top 3 I don't think he starts anywhere. He might start as the AM in Milan but it's apparent Pioli prefers a bigger/stronger ST. At this stage in his career I think he's better as a third option in attack. He's too injury prone to be an every day player now.

So you rather keep Correa and Sanchez instead getting fkn Dybala? Great.
Sanchez is leaving. And yes I'd rather keep Correa with his lower wages than sign Dybala on higher wages if it means we don't need to keep on sacrificing our core every summer.

Dybala isn't going to start ahead of Lukaku and Lautaro.

Republica said that Marotta contacted Dybala, the player could join even before selling Sanchez and Dzeko/Correa

Sky reports we've informed Dybala that he's "free" to accept other offers as the deal is on standby for now.

I guess it all depends on Sanchez getting the fuck out (and Vidal but he's on his way already).

SportItalia transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla believes that Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is as committed as ever to trying to sign Paulo Dybala despite being circumspect when asked about the player in a press conference today.

Reporting live on air moments ago this evening, Pedulla suggested that the Nerazzurri CEO was not letting on that he actually intends to get a deal done for the Argentine with his words, a tactic which he has employed in the past when signing other players.

Marotta hardly denied interest in Dybala when speaking about the 28-year-old in today’s pre-season press conference, but his answer seemed to suggest that forcing through a deal for the player was not a priority.

However, the CEO could very well be thinking about the pursuit of the Argentine differently behind the scenes, and this is how Pedulla expects that things really are.

“I have no feedback regarding Napoli and Marseille,” he said. “Here is the key to understanding Marotta’s words for me.

“I was struck by the fact that he intervened directly on the subject, without being asked any questions, and advised not to ask Inzaghi questions.”

“I would have to reiterate, there’s an ongoing pact between Marotta and Dybala,” Pedulla continued, outlining their personal agreement as “I’ll bring you to Inter, if you have other proposals let me know, I want to know in real time.”

“Today’s statement was a white lie,” he continued. “He also said the same about Higuain at Juve, not for now, then four days later they paid the release clause.”

“At the time that Inter were pursuing Eriksen he was asked if he would arrive, and the answer was the same, after a few days they paid almost €20 million euros.”

“Their chase of him is still open,” Pedulla stressed, “otherwise it’s impossible that Dybala has waited until July 5th to join a new team.

“He wants to stay in Italy, and for Inter he’s a sensational transfer opportunity. Let’s see what happens in the next three or four days.”

While I'm not the biggest fan of Marotta, he is the undisputed king of transfers within Serie A. He seems to really want Dybala and generally he gets what he wants in these type of situations. I'm more concerned with Marotta blowing the Skriniar sale and giving Alexis a fat pay out than I am Dybala coming.

Time to talk the talk and walk the walk Sanchez.

Apparently you're this lion who wants & needs to be unleashed.
By the sounds of it, Sanchez is waiting on a 5 year contract offer from Real Madrid with wages of €9m net and guaranteed playing time as a starter.

If Dybala somehow arrives, he is going to start WITH Lukaku and Lautaro. No way he would simply accept a bench role here given his reputation and after going through such a long winded patience testing transfer saga on top of that.

But hey, it's Inter. Of course we are starting with Dzeko. If Dzeko isn't available, we will start with Correa. Lukaku and Dybala can rot on the bench. They will only come on in minute 90+3 when we are trailing 0-1 at the Meazza against the likes of Cremonese, Lecce, and Mozza.

A Dybala, Martinez, and Lukaku trident would not work under any circumstances.

I agree that it is very much unlikely IF we insist on playing a 3 man defense. Inzaghi is your classic stubborn and rigid Italian coach, so yeah.

I really want to see that trident though.

How is Inzaghi stubborn and rigid? You're right he's Italian tho.
The example I would point to is the stretch of five matches last February where we scored 1 total goal, and he refused to change the shape of the team. A coach like Mourinho or Mancini would have changed the system at that point. Even Spalletti played around with his tactics quite a bit, by the end of his last season with Cancelo we had basically switched to a 3-4-3.

Conte and Inzaghi are two of the most stubborn managers I have seen at Inter.

Changing the tactics for the sake of changing is not flexibility, it's suicide.

5 matches :yao:

I feel like you're calling him stubborn because he didn't make the changes you wanted, but you fail to consider the consequences of such changes.

IMO Inzaghi is not more stubborn than any other systematic coaches out there. Klopp or Pep would stay loyal to their approach during a rough patch about the same as Inzaghi.

But let's end the discussion here, we're not going to change anyone's mind.

Inzaghi did not necessarily need to change tactics or formations. Sometimes, knowing when to play or sub in the right players might be helpful. It's not that hard to see when we are impotent in certain departments during a game. But yeah, let's just end the discussion here.

5 matches that cost us the title race? We're playing with the thinnest of margins. I'm not suggesting he overhaul his entire coaching philosophy. I'm saying that the truly great managers sometimes make temporary changes to help motivate their team. Fuck, Pep used a back three at City in the EPL at times last year.
