The biggest rivals in Italian football, Juventus and Inter could be working on a deal that would make their squads become much more dangerous ahead of next season. With Antonio Conte confirmed as Inter’s new boss, the Nerazzurri have put all their efforts in trying to assemble the best possible team for Conte, who arrived in Milan keen to take Internazionale to the highest spots again.
This is why another former Juventus employer, Giuseppe “Beppe” Marotta is all in to bring the best of the best for Conte this summer. Both Marotta and Conte are decided to exchange their biggest figure, Mauro Icardi and receive Juventus’ struggling Paulo Dybala this offseason, a move that would make a lot of sense for both teams.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper, the two squads will be able to negotiate the exchange by valuing each forward at near €60-70 million. Even though both players showed recently their desire to stay at least one more season with their current squads, they could still be leaving in the summer if Inter and Juve pull off this move.
Here we are in front of a win-win scenario since Dybala would be a great fit to Conte’s playing style, and would leave a Juventus team where he doesn’t appear to have a place after being isolated this season at the expense of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic.
Besides, knowing that Icardi wanted to move on after his back and forth with Inter fans, teammates and club’s directive, maybe the end to all those bad moments is nearest than he thinks. We might see two of the most passionate rivals in European football solving each other’s problems in the next weeks.
Now it’s time to wait how this whole situation will go down, as Marotta seems eager to land Dybala this summer, but perhaps Juventus would have some reserves on letting the former Palermo star go this season.
