Italian journalist Marco Bellinazzo has suggested that Inter’s financial state means they will not have to sell a player like Achraf Hakimi next summer, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with, the Sole 24 Ore journalist explained that the major losses of over €245 million that Inter suffered over the last year have already been positively redressed by the sales of Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku.

“First-tier players will enter the roster. There will be no emergency situations in this case as happened with Hakimi.”

Marco Bellinazzo also explained that the remarkable amount of sponsorship deals that Inter have signed over the summer will be very beneficial to making the finances more stable in the future.

“Inter will benefit from the new sponsorship contracts as well as from the full reopening of the stadiums: this should allow us to arrive at next year with a more contained red and will leave room for less traumatic operations on the market.

“Inter should renew further bond contracts that should ensure greater serenity from a financial point of view beyond what is happening in China.”

The sales of Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku has also meant that the wage bill has been reduced, and the club are committed to trying to reduce it further and lowering the average age of the squad.

“The cuts in the amount of salary, which will be seen in the next budget, put Inter in a position of greater safety. If there are these exits, they will only be the result of strategies and not obligations.”

The loss that Inter recorded is the most for a Serie A club in history.
