Inter will have to earn a minimum of €14.2 million from the sales of fringe players Dalbert and Valentino Lazaro this summer in order to avoid taking a capital gains loss.

This according to Italian news outlet, who report that this is the amount that the duo weigh on the Nerazzurri’s balance sheet, and so whatever the duo is sold for cannot be less than that sum in total.

Neither Dalbert nor Lazaro have any sort of future at Inter, with both wide players having spent the past few seasons out on loan.

Dalbert, who arrived from Nice in the summer of 2017, is most strongly linked with a move back to his old club after having spent the past few seasons on loan with the likes of Fiorentina, Rennes, and Cagliari.

Nice own 20% of the Brazilian’s contract, and so a move would be relatively straightforward for the Ligue 1 side, and given that his current deal with Inter runs out at the end of June 2023 he will have to leave on a permanent sale or else have his contract extended before being loaned out.

Meanwhile, Lazaro’s current deal runs out at the end of June 2024 and so the Austrian could theoretically go out on loan once again.

However, the player isn’t keen on another loan after spells with Newcastle United, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Benfica since joining the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2019 from Hertha Berlin.

Dalbert is budgeted for around €5.8 million and Lazaro for €8.4 million, and so with both players likely to be sold on a permanent basis this summer, that amount must be earned from their combined sales to avoid a potential capital gains loss.
