A transfer journalist has explained how following the sale of Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint Germain, inter have no choice but to be patient in the transfer market, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.

Whilst speaking on Sky Sport in Italy, Luca Marchetti made it clear that when you are in the sort of financial state that Inter are currently in, you have to be patient with transfers.

“They must act while observing the limits imposed by Chinese ownership. For this you need patience”.

The Suning Group who owns Inter made it clear when the 2020/21 season ended that they must finish the summer transfer window with a profit of at least €70 million. They must also reduce the player wage bill by 15%.

This is why Achraf Hakimi was sold to Paris Saint Germain for an upfront fee of €65 million. He is a player that Simone Inzaghi would have loved to keep.

They now must find a replacement who costs almost a quarter of what they sold the Moroccan for.
