Inter’s Beppe Marotta: “We didn’t have space for Dybala.”

Inter CEO Beppe Marotta responded to criticism regarding his club’s unsuccessful pursuit of newly acquired Roma attacker Paulo Dybala.

The Nerazzurri were the longstanding favorites to acquire La Joya following his split with Juventus, however, they never closed the deal, leading Roma to beat them to the punch and sign the attacker to a three-year contract.

“There has been a lot of talk surrounding Dybala,” he told DAZN. “I can simply say he’s a serious and professional guy.”

“However, our attack is already sorted and at an incredibly high level. There wasn’t any space for him not because he wasn’t good but because there was no need.”

“The whole situation is being exploited in order to make us look bad but we already have an attacking department that’s full of quality.”

Adding, “I think Roma is ideal for Dybala because he’ll be able to feel like a leader there. I’m not saying he’s the heir to Totti because that’s obviously a massive concept, but I think he can entertain the supporters.”

“Nonetheless, I wish him all the best.”
