The Nerazzurri youth continue to be sacrificed to fund Inter’s dealings on the transfer market as their transfers are capital gains which help the club meet UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules. Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport tries to summarize all the possible departures in today’s paper edition.
According to the report: “day after day the goal of €40-45 million gets closer and closer to being completed, after the agreement with Atalanta for the transfer of defender Davide Bettella. Additionally, striker Andrea Pinamonti and goalkeeper Ionut Radu are both close to joining Genoa in return for the 16 year old Eddy Salcedo. Meanwhile interest in Emmers has lost some momentum.”
The two capital gains from Radu and Pinamonti could yield around €12 million, if not more. The transfer fee recouperated from Atalanta will be around €7 million and also in this case, Inter will retain the option to buy back Bettella. This means Bastoni will return to Inter a bit earlier than previously agreed which was set for the Summer of 2019 but it’s likely he’ll go back out on loan, with interest in him being shown mainly by S.P.A.L. and Sassuolo.
Speaking of the Sassuolo, Inter are interested in Politano and could send Merola and Zaniolo the opposite way to help seal the deal. Puscas has suitors, as well as Vanheusden who is currently on loan at Standard Liege, and so do Dekic, Sala and Rover. Furthermore, Valietti deserves a special mention as he will most likely go to Roma in the deal for Nainggolan.
Despite all of this selling, Pompetti will not leave and has been deemed as “non-transferable” by Inter.
