Inter Can Afford More Summer Signings After Lukaku, Financial Report Reveals

Inter Can Afford More Summer Signings After Lukaku, Financial Report Reveals

Inter have enough financial wiggle room to make more signings in the transfer market this summer, a report revealed today.

The Nerazzurri agreed a deal to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United yesterday and announced his arrival earlier.

However, the Belgian is unlikely to be the last high-profile acquisition this month because Inter’s current transfer activity is comfortably sustainable.

The encouraging news was announced earlier by Calcio e Finanza, who conducted an in-depth analysis of Inter’s finances for the 2019-20 season.

The report stated Inter have brought 10 players into the club this summer, between loanees joining permanently and new faces arriving, spending a combined total of €155 million.

This has seen the overall cost of the Nerazzurri’s squad, considering wages before tax, amortisation costs and players out on loan, rise to €236 million, marking a €40 million increase on the €198.2 million figure from the 2018-19 season.

UEFA encourages all its clubs to ensure the cost of their squad does not exceed 70% of their operational revenue, in a bid to control spending and avoid financial difficulties in future years.

Inter are due to recoup €417 million in revenue during the 2019-20 financial year, though – including the €46 million they raised in capital gains in June – meaning their squad-revenue ratio currently stands at a healthy 57%.

The club’s ratio has risen slightly from the 47% recorded during last summer’s transfer window, but there is still a very long way to go before their spending becomes unsustainable.

These statistics certify Suning’s reputation as a sensible and reliable business who will only let Inter spend as much as they can truly afford.
