Suning have asked Inter to finish the summer transfer window with a net profit of €70 million between sales and signings.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the owners have set the €70 million figure as a goal, although in terms of sales this could mean €100 million or more.
Inter’s summer transfer window is not likely to be quite the same as it was last time around when both Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi were sold for huge fees, but it looks clear that a big name will be sold nevertheless.
Profitability and replenishing the club’s coffers remain important priorities given the financial situation, and so in addition to further reductions to the wage bill, turning a profit in the transfer market is a clear demand from the owners.
Suning reportedly have asked for a positive balance of €70 million for the window, but more money will be needed from sales in order to fund signings as well.
