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

I don't know what to think about Dybala.

As I've said previously, this team really lacks a talisman in attack, and I still stand by that. Scamacca isn't that, and Lautaro has been a disappointment expecting him to lead this post-Lukaku offense. Sadly, a completely over-the-hill Dzeko has been the closest thing to our talisman this season.

On the other hand there's so much uncertainty around potential departures and arrivals - all linked to our greater financial situation and this diabolical need to allegedly raise 60m and reduce our wage bill by a further 15%. Signing Dybala, on the wages he would command, may be an ill-advised and lopsided way of allocating our pathetic budget, especially considering his injury history.

Dybala and Lautaro on paper is very strong… but how often would we actually see them playing together?? Replacing Sanchez with Dybala is not enough. We would need to bring another forward into the mix, Scamacca could be a good option— but cost could make that impossible.

Expensive, injury prone and given the current financial situation it's a pass for me. I also have concerns about his attitude, comes across as a diva and that could be detrimental to team chemistry going forward.

Heck, I'm not so sure about Scamacca really especially at that price. Memphis is another one I'm not particular sold on either. Kinda liked Raspardori but Juve want him, and they always get their way.

Let's solve the defense issues and midfield concerns first. Please get rid of all the deadwood. Inter maybe wise gambling on Satriano and Esposito as strikers along with Correa, Lautaro and Dzeko until this looming fiscal crap is resolved.

I'm baffled that he is not shooting down this rumor. Is it possible he's that insane to switch from Rube to Inter? Or Ausilio/Marotta are that good? This is not some random Rube player, they love him and he loves them back. Maybe he's negotitating with them still? For my baby brain everything makes more sense then him signing for Inter.

Maybe the way Conte handled it is making this type of switch look easier than it actually is

Probably 3 reasons for this:

1.Feels slighted by gobbi going back on their word regarding the verbal contract that was agreed. As they say revenge is best served cold
2.Close relationship with marotta
3.Lifestyle:Has been in italy for a long time, nearly 10 years since he joined palermo. Likely doesn't want to change country.

I assume Scamacca will come on the loan + option to buy formula (which is an obligation) with deferred payments.

With regards to Dybala, our economical situation will improve after this season (cutting on the deadwoods + stadium capacity back to 100%).
I mean we ended last summer`s transfer market with an overall balance of +€165.55m, while Gosens (€15M) will be only payed in the future. Correa will cost the club €23.6M more, but surely there`s some money left? I mean Vidal & Sanchez - the biggest earners will also leave. I have plenty of trust our management will pull this one off.

PS: Thanks for adding the Poll with the options I have suggested! Now let`s see what would FIF`ers do :geek:

Don't have one.
No from me on the poll. In fact, his whole juve career is nicely summarized by that no option. Everything else is crossing our fingers and hoping for the best, which is mad given our financial situation and the fact that we have another liability in attack in correa.

The only way I would be for this move is if we had fuck you money and our attack was pretty much set with other quality players.

Way too much smoke to ignore this. Schira and GdS have been talking about it for a while. Pedulla has been talking a lot about Inter and Dybala in the last days. Biasin has also admitted Marotta will make an attempt for Dybala but only if he doesn't have to sell Lautaro. "Tap in merchants", Di Marzio and Romano, have avoided saying anything definite about Inter and Dybala but a member of their stuff who usually leaks some news before they do, Matteo Moretto, said yesterday his feeling is Dybala will join Inter. Unless we have something unexpected (e.g. Suning blocking the deal, Milan making a move because of new owners), i believe Dybala will join Inter.

When it comes to Inter and Dybala there are many aspects that need to be taken into consideration:

- PR: Marotta has made many high profile free signings but signing Dybala would be the ultimate Marottata. Dybala isn't just a quality Juventus player. He was the face of Juventus project pre and post Ronaldo, he recently made it to Juventus all-time top 10 scorers surpassing Platini, he is a Juventus vice-captain and a fan favorite. It would be a statement signing and a Bayern-like move.

- Financial: Inter would have to give him the highest contract in the club in a time they're desperately trying to cut costs. He would have to perform from the get go and remain fit else there could be issues in the dressing room from the top performers who earn less.

Also the duration of the contract suggests a massive investment and commitment from Inter's side when no one really knows his fitness and performance level in a 5-year span. If he doesn't perform as expected for whatever reasons, it will be impossible to offload him and he could become another Nainggolan for Inter.

- Sporting: I believe our system suits Dybala, he brings things we currently lack (creativity, individual brilliance, set pieces specialist) and he could perform well. But his fitness is a HUGE concern. You can have the best player in the world who's a perfect fit for your system and it wouldn't make any difference if he doeswn't stay fit enough to show it on the pitch.

Another thing we need to take into consideration is what plans our management have in mind for Dybala.

If he's coming to replace Sanchez he could be a great addition. Lautaro doesn't give the guarantees he could lead our attack but i believe a Lautaro-Dybala duo could be very productive. But in that case the question is: Does Simone agree with this? Or he would bench one of Lautaro and Dybala for Dzeko? We can't afford going into another season with Dzeko playing so much.

If he's coming to replace Lautaro, i fear signing Dybala would be a mistake. An attack consisted of Dybala, Scamacca, Dzeko and Correa would be full of uncertainties. If we have to sell Lautaro at least try to sign a future star (e.g. Nkunku) or at least a promising forward with high potential (e.g. Jonathan David). I don't see either things in Scamacca.

A 3 year contract, and he can take whatever wages he wants. I view it similarly to Calhanoglu.

The problem is, selling Martinez to fund a Dybala signing hardly makes this team better. In fact, it makes us worse because we need players who can score goals, something Dybala hasn't done consistently in three years. If we sign Dybala it needs to be to play with Martinez.

I'm begrudgingly in favor of signing Dybala, but if it means selling Toro then that's hustling backwards. Whatever your opinions on Lautaro are, one thing that he has indisputably been is available. He's probably played more matches than anyone besides Handanovic since he's been here. And we all know we can't count on Dybala to stay healthy. Even if selling Toro means bringing in Dybala and someone like Scamacca, still a hard pass.

I look at Dybala as a seond striker, something like Correa, so if we are selling Lautaro do we really wanna spend 40M or even more on Scamacca, who i am not even close to being sold on. The salaries of Vidal and Sanchez should be more than enough to pay Dybala anyway, so lets see how will Suning try to fuck the team again.

Sanchez's contract doesn't expire though, right? We're going to have to give him a golden handshake. I doubt there's much savings there.

i think we will still be saving around 3M on Alexis and Vidal's contract is like 7M. So i am sure out of both those salaries we could pay Dybala. Now, i just hope they dont give Dybala a 5 year deal. That would be a problem with all of his injuries.

Pedulla saying Dybala will wait for inter.
“He would go to Spain, perhaps to Barcelona who have never looked for him with a certain conviction until now. The moral of this speech is that Dybala wants to wait for Inter. He would gladly go to Inter with Beppe Marotta and, as long as there is this possibility, he will not respond to the other suitors.” - Pedulla

In terms of how Beppe Marotta would make that transfer work, the obvious plan is to sell Alexis Sanchez so that his wages become available:
“Marotta loves Dybala even within an overall situation that Inter will have to unblock. In the folds of a budget that must always be 100% protected, today there are four forwards and one will have to leave to make room for the Argentine. All the clues lead to Alexis Sanchez.” - Pedulla
Hopefully Dybala is coming as an upgrade on Sanchez, not Martinez. It would be great to have argentine forwards Martinez - Dybala - Correa + a towering striker.
