Inter Do NOT Have To Sell Star Players By June Due To Financial Difficulties, Italian Media Highlight

Inter will not necessarily have to sell a major player by next June due to financial difficulties, and could mitigate their issues in other ways.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who note that the Gazzetta dello Sport have amended their story claiming that a major sale could be necessary to note that there are several reasons that this might not be the case.

With the Nerazzurri potentially up for sale at some point before next summer, their economic situation could change dramatically if they come under new ownership.

Current owners Suning have been unable to inject cash into the club amid their financial issues, with the Chinese company dealing with their own major debt and liquidity problems, but reports have suggested that the club could be up for sale.

If this is to be the case then a major sale similar to those of Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku over the summer would be unlikely, and in any event it is as of yet not possible to predict what the Nerazzurri’s situation will be as of next summer amid major uncertainty.

In the meantime, the report continues, the club are pursuing other cost-cutting measures in an effort to make up for their financial woes.

Firstly, after the major hit that revenues took as a result of the pandemic, the Nerazzurri are beginning to bring in money once again with fans allowed back in the stadium, and continued participation in the Champions League can also bring in significant revenue.

Furthermore, the potential departure of Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window could see the club reduce their wage bill significantly, with the Chilean thought to be unhappy at the club.

Sanchez earns a net of €7 million annually on his current deal, and even if the club were to agree a severance package to terminate his contract, they would still stand to save on the €10.5 million gross wages owed to him.

In his place the club could bring in a functional attacker on significantly lower wages, with Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca tipped as one possible arrival.

Arturo Vidal’s situation is a bit different, as the other of Inter’s two high-earning Chileans has not yet been at the club for two years and so the Growth Decree would only come into effect on his wages in July 0f 2022.

In any event, the report concludes, while these and other possible movements related to fringe squad players would not on their own make a significant difference to the Nerazzurri’s financial situation, such measures could still be enough combined with other factors to ensure that a top player does not need to be sold to stabilize the club.
