Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Sporting Director Piero Ausilio are worried that only a small portion of the fee for Romelu Lukaku will be allowed to be reinvested into the team should the Belgian be sold.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the club directors are anxious that owners Suning and President Steven Zhang plan to make only €40 million available for the transfer market despite the expected large fee incoming from Lukaku’s sale.

Lukaku’s departure looks increasingly likely, with Chelsea having made a major push for him this week and both Inter and the Belgian ready to accept their offer, and Marotta and Ausilio will know that the task ahead of rebuilding the team will be of great significance.

This is made doubly so by the fact that wing-back Achraf Hakimi already departed earlier in the window, and the club have not yet brought in a like-for-like replacement for the Moroccan.

The club directors will know that with the massive amount of transfer revenue set to arrive if Lukaku is sold, the team could be strengthened both by a replacement for the Belgian and with reinforcement other areas if a significant chunk of the fee is spent wisely.

However, with fears that only a small amount of the fee will be spent in this fashion, the directors are feeling uncertain as to whether the Nerazzurri project can recover from Lukaku’s sale.
