The Argentine towards the Nerazzurri shirt, a new episode in the ‘saga’ between Turin and Milan
Paulo Dybala from Juventus to Inter? The umpteenth episode of the transfer market saga between Juventus and Nerazzurri is looming. The 28-year-old Argentine striker is about to leave Juventus, who will not renew the expiring contract, and according to the rumors of the Gazzetta delle Sport appears destined to move to Inter, where he would sign a four-year contract until 2026. From Turin to Milan, a transfer which makes noise and which extends the list of affairs staged on the Juve-Inter axis, in one direction or another.
The first important chapter, in the ‘modern’ saga, can be identified in the Roberto Boninsegna-Pietro Anastasi exchange. The first from Milan to the Old Lady, the second from Juve to the Nerazzurri shirt in 1976. Boninsegna found a place in Trapattoni’s Juve, contributing to Turin’s successes, while Anastasi was unable to affect Inter in the same way.
With Juve, Marco Tardelli won everything who, after a Juventus decade between 1975 and 1985, went to Inter for 2 seasons with no satisfactions. A Milanese year (1984-85) also for Franco Causio, another Juventus pillar (1970-1981) who, before leaving Turin, went to delight the Udinese fans for 3 years, taking away the whim of playing alongside Zico. A trip from Milan to Turin for Alessandro Altobelli, who after a life and a Scudetto in Inter took sides at the center of Juve’s attack in 1988-1989. In the 80s Aldo Serena traveled a lot: Inter, Juve, Inter again in a career marked by derby, also given the adventures with Milan and Turin.
In the 90s, Gigi De Agostini said goodbye to Juve and became an Interista for a year. Totò Schillaci, Juventus bomber and star of the magical nights of Italy ’90, does not leave indelible memories in Milan. The list of transfers is long and also concerns the bench. Trapattoni returns to Turin after a Nerazzurri scudetto, Marcello Lippi – with Angelo Peruzzi – tries unsuccessfully to replicate the Turin triumphs in Milan.
The Juve-Inter duo was rekindled in 2004, when Fabio Cannavaro moved to the Bianconeri in an affair involving Fabian Carini, reserve goalkeeper for the Turin team. Then, in the summer of 2006 marked by calciopoli, Inter bought Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Patrick Vieira from the Old Lady. After them, Hernanes and Kwadwo Asamoah enliven the Juventus and blue market news, up to the arrival of Beppe Marotta at the top of Inter.
