Nerazzurri Legend Beppe Bergomi: “Juventus’s Paulo Dybala Would Be A Great Signing For Inter & Perfect For Simone Inzaghi”

Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi feels that Juventus forward Paulo Dybala could be just the signing that the Nerazzurri need to take the next step in attack.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the 61-year-old highlighted how the Bianconeri man could be the right fit in the Nerazzurri’s tactical setup under Simone Inzgahi.

Recent reports have suggested that Inter are stepping up their interest in bringing Dybala in on a free transfer should he be unable to agree on a new deal with the Bianconeri, with his current contract set to expire at the end of June.

The Argentine’s arrival would represent a high-profile piece of business and also a significant piece of business, which Bergomi emphasizes that the team would have to make sure to get right.

However, he argued, there are good reasons to think that Dybala would fit in well with this present Nerazzurri team should he be brought in.

“It would be a great signing,” he said, “an opportunity to be seized in the market, but only on condition that you have clear ideas on how to deploy him on the pitch.”

He explained that “In Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 he can play as the striker. He can also do well next to Lautaro, but without losing a physical centre forward.”

“To be clear, someone with Dzeko’s profile is always necessary,” he added.

He explained that “Dybala’s talent is not in question, but to define a great player as ‘world class’ you need to see consistency of performance for many years and he, for physical reasons, has never quite gotten there.”

“This does not detract from his value, and the fact is that, within Inzaghi’s system, he would be perfect,” Bergomi opined.

“With this kind of move the priority for Inter fans must be how it affects their own team,” the former defender emphasized. “You can only really celebrate stealing a high-profile player from a major rival if the deal is a success for your own team on the pitch.”

“I just hope that focusing on Dybala does not mean giving up on some very important young players for the future of the Nerazzurri,” he cautioned. “but over the years the club has shown that it knows how to balance these choices very well.”
