Paulo Dybala has revealed that he is ‘very comfortable’ in Italy, though admitted that he would like to experience a new league before retirement.
Dybala is leaving Juventus this summer on a free transfer after seven years at the club and he currently looks likely to remain in Serie A with Inter.
As reported last month by 90min, Inter soon emerged as favourites for his signature when it became apparent he would be leaving Turin. But they are not the only club in the hunt with Dybala also attracting interest from the Premier League and La Liga.
The forward was quizzed about his future after the 2022 Finalissima, which Argentina won 3-0 against European champions Italy, and revealed that he was more than happy to remain in Serie A beyond this summer.
“I am quite calm, the people who work with are taking care. I dedicate myself to playing. In Italy I am very comfortable, they treat me like an Italian. But I would still like to know other leagues,” he told ESPN Argentina.
Inter are continuing to work on a deal to sign Dybala with vice-president Javier Zanetti teasing fans about the prospect of him playing up front with compatriot Lautaro Martinez next season.
Listen now to 90min’s brand new podcast, Talking Transfers, with Scott Saunders, Graeme Bailey & Toby Cudworth. This week they discuss Man Utd’s interest in Darwin Nunez, Ivan Perisic’s move to Spurs & Chelsea’s midfield options – with Conor Gallagher set to return and Jorginho on the market. Toby also talks about the long list of interested clubs in Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet.
“Maybe. The transfer market is opening, we have a lot of time – we’re a club who must seize opportunities, if that proves to be the case we’ll evaluate it,” he told Sempreinter.
“We must also be realistic, the constraints we’re dealing with are ones you know, but we’re talking about a great player when it comes to Dybala.”
