Inter are set for a lucrative parting gift from their outgoing shirt sponsor Pirelli, a report in the Italian media revealed today.
As per Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition, Pirelli will pay the Nerazzurri an extra €13 million after they won the Serie A title, as per bonuses clauses in their agreement.
Inter will need a new main shirt sponsor next season, with the Italian tyre manufacturer due to depart on June 30 after 26 years.
In total, the club will receive an extra €15 million from their sponsorship agreements after clinching their 19th scudetto.
In addition to Pirelli’s bonus payment, the Milan-based paper continued, Inter will get another €400,000 from Credit Agricole, one of their secondary partners.
They will also receive a further €100,000 from Manpower, as per the clauses in the parties’ agreement.
Inter are set to receive around €50 million in total for winning the Serie A title, when sponsorship income is added to TV rights income and other prize money.
However, they will not be able to keep all of this money because they must pay certain bonuses to other clubs for transfer agreements, such as €1 million to Barcelona for Arturo Vidal.
