The currently ongoing Coronavirus pandemic could well create a balance sheet nightmare for Inter and many other clubs on the planet according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
Inter have four players out on loan at other clubs who have options to buy in Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic, Joao Mario and Valentino Lazaro and due to the financial impact that Coronavirus has had clubs may refrain from activating their purchase options.
Inter could potentially pocket in the region of €130 million if the options are taken up but this situation could cause them to miss out on some significant income.
Due to football being on hold and many recent games being played behind closed doors, Inter, like many other clubs have lost out on ticket revenue and if the season does resume they could miss out on even more if games are played behind closed doors which would be detrimental to the balance sheet.
The report goes on to state that club sponsors have postponed talks over contract extensions due to the talks so Inter could lose out on more revenue in the future.
