Inter secured some much-needed funds at the weekend with Antonio Candreva and Matteo Politano both leaving the club permanently, an Italian media report explained today.

As per Calcio e Finanza, Candreva’s loan move to Sampdoria was made permanent courtesy of the Blucerchiati securing a point against Benevento on Sunday, triggering the obligation to buy in the forward’s contract.

Politano’s loan with Napoli was also made permanent following the Azzurri’s 2-1 defeat at Genoa on Saturday, when the former Sassuolo winger made his first appearance for the club after February 1.

The sale of Candreva will earn Inter €2.5 million while the sale of Politano will earn them €19 million, with the Nerazzurri making to make a combined capital gain of €5.5 million.

Inter also signed Matteo Darmian on a permanent basis this weekend for €2.5 million.

Darmian, who joined the Nerazzurri loan from Parma last summer, has joined with Inter being obliged to sign him outright after picking up their first point after February 1, which they did by beating Fiorentina on Friday.
