While many observers will focus primarily on incomings and outgoings in the summer transfer window, the renewal of existing squad members is also a cornerstone of Inter’s transfer strategy.
Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera has argued that Inter will have to work over the summer to ensure that the Scudetto-winning teams of 2020-21 is not dismantled while also achieving the financial objectives outlined for the club.
Inter are thought to have a net profit of €70 million as their financial goal for the summer, and this will require the departure of at least one major squad member, currently thought to be Achraf Hakimi with PSG heavily interested.
However, the club are also working the renew the contracts of squad members such as Ashley Young and Andrea Ranocchia at reduced salary terms, a move that will hopefully keep squad strength and cohesion at a high level while also easing the financial burden placed on the club by the wage bill.
An option to renew the contract of defender Danilo D’ambrosio at reduced wages has already been exercised by the Nerazzurri.
Additionally, the club are thought to be working to keep midfielder Matias Vecino who is highly regarded by new manager Simone Inzaghi.
