Inter Received Only €200,000 From FC Zurich For Highly Rated Youngster Willy Gnonto
Inter received just €200,000 from FC Zurich for the transfer of Degnand Wilfried Gnonto according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.
Gnonto, who was highly regarded as one of the best prospects in Inter’s academy, completed a move to the Swiss Super League side yesterday with him putting pen to paper on a three year contract.
FC Zurich did not have to pay a transfer fee for him and they simply only had to pay a solidarity youth development payment to Inter, which world football’s governing body FIFA determined to be €200,000.
FC Zurich were able to get away without paying a transfer fee due to the fact that the 16-year-old was only on a youth contract with Inter and the report from the Turin based newspaper goes on to claim that the club offered Gnonto’s parents jobs too as part of his transfer.
The Italian under 17 national team player made 26 appearances across all competitions to date this term at youth level for Inter prior to his move, in which he scored six goals and provided four assists.
