Inter must finish the upcoming summer transfer window on a net profit of €50 million between players sold and players signed.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri have set €50 million as their goal in what will be another summer with financial objectives to meet.
Inter made a significant net profit in last summer’s transfer market, selling Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku and then finding replacements mindful of budgetary restrictions.
The club finished last summer recording a net profit of over €100 million, and while this summer the target is not quite that high, the financial need to bring in money via player sales remains.
The losses in the club’s last fiscal year report were a massive €245 million, and the owners want to reduce this to €100-110 million in the upcoming fiscal year.
It remains to be seen what the club’s strategy will be to meet the €50 million target, but sales of players will be inevitable.
