Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte and Paulo Dybala deal reportedly fell through last Sunday, bringing Conte to the tricky disposition of who to take next. The Italian manager has remained optimistic and has not given up hope of luring Romelu Lukaku to join Inter Milan.
25-year-old Paulo Dybala demanded a whopping £350,000 a week from United which Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was not able to meet. Lukaku, on the other hand, will have to take other approaches while he has his eyes set on Italy.
When asked about pre-season friendly at White Hart Lane, Conte only had to say “We continue to work on it in the best possible way. I understand there are some gaps that need to be filled but at the moment I am very hopeful that this will happen. With Lukaku, we are talking about a good player, a striker I tried to buy in the past when I was Chelsea’s coach. We are talking about two big clubs – Juventus and Inter Milan – but honestly, I don’t know.”
