Inter are set to pay a total of €8.5 million to midfielder Arturo Vidal and forward Alexis Sanchez in the summer in order to terminate their contracts.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that this will be the total amount of the severance payments by which the club can part ways with both players.

It looks increasingly likely that neither Vidal not Sanchez have a future with Inter beyond the end of this season, though both could still play an important role in the team’s pursuit of the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia.

Vidal’s wages are set to rise to €9.5 million net for the season if he were to stay at the club, while Sanchez’s would stay at €7 million net.

During the summer transfer window, however, the Nerazzurri will likely exercise their options to terminate both players’ deals as they move on to replacements ahead of next season.

In Vidal’s case, the club can pay the 34-year-old €4 million in order to not trigger the clause which automatically extends his deal until the end of June 2023.

And in Sanchez’s case, the Chilean’s deal goes until the end of June 2023, but the Nerazzurri have the option of terminating it a year early with a €4.5 million severance payment to save on his wages as with Vidal.
