Here Is Why It Is Difficult For Inter To Sign Players With Expiring Contracts

During this year’s transfer market, Inter is facing a hard-to-explain paradox. In today’s edition, Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport tries to shed som light of how everything works: “In today’s football world, a player with a contract that expires within 12 months and with no intentions of renewing it, is a player that must be handled with care.

“This is because it opens up for a good opportunity to sign the player for a discounted fee. For Inter and sporting director Piero Ausilio it does not quite work like that, on the contrary things get complicated. This is because of the Financial Fair Play restrictions imposed on Inter by UEFA. Those restrictions state that for every purchase there has to be an equivalent income and for that reason Inter must prioritise loan transactions with the right of redemption, like the transfer of Matteo Politano but also something that has blocked the Malcom deal. And such a deal, a loan with right to redemption, is not possible with a player who has a contract that expires within 12 months. In order for such a deal to take place, the player first must renew his contract with his club. With that in hand it seems smart for Inter to take a step back when it comes to the negotiations for Florenzi, Dembelé and Darmian as all of them have contracts expiring in 2019.”
