Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti has teased the possibility of pairing Paulo Dybala and Lautaro Martinez at the San Siro next season, something that will disappoint the choice Arsenal and Manchester United, who have shown interest in both players.
Dybala is leaving Juventus this month as his contract in Turin expires and he has no shortage of suitors across Europe, Inter being one of them.
Martinez is not in the same position under contract at Inter until 2026, although there are clubs who are looking to try and pull him away from Milan, with a £60m price tag on his head.
Inter do not want to sell the 24-year-old and Zanetti considered bringing in his international teammate to bolster his attack with Argentina.
On the possibility of the two pairing up, Zanetti told reporters, AlwaysInter: ‘Perhaps. The transfer market is opening up, we have a lot of time – we are a club that should take advantage of the opportunities, we will evaluate it if it turns out to be.
‘We also have to be realistic, the obstacles we are dealing with are the ones you know, but when we talk about Dybala we are talking about a great player.’
Arsenal have been linked with both Martinez and Dybala as they look to revamp their attack over the summer.
Manchester United has also been seen as a potential destination for both Argentine men, although they are not at the top of new manager Eric Ten Haag’s shopping list.
Both men scored for their country on Wednesday night as Argentina beat Italy to win the finals at Wembley, a clash between the winners of the Copa America and the European Championships.
