The situation of midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo at Roma could be made more complicated by the fact that Inter are entitled to a sell-on fee worth 15% of any deal for the 22-year-old.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that Zaniolo’s situation in the Italian capital is unsettled and that the Nerazzurri are hoping that the Giallorossi sell him for a big fee so that they can bring in some much-needed cash.
Zaniolo and his representatives are pressing Roma to either extend his contract or sell him this summer, with a number of clubs keen on the 22-year-old if he is to be available.
The Giallorossi value Zaniolo at €60 million, and should a deal be made to sell him for this amount Inter would receive €9 million, for example.
Moreover, even if Roma let Zaniolo go for a cash-plus-player deal where the cash fee is lower than their asking price, the Nerazzurri would be entitled to 15% of the cash amount as well as the value of the player received by the Giallorossi.
The situation is one that is far from straightforward for Roma, and is being watched closely by Inter.
