Inter Milan has seen its fare share of glory days but they’ve also experienced a lot of bad moments during the years.
Nevertheless, the majority of betting sites are still full of Inter’s fans who will gladly wager on their favorite team regardless of the outcome.
Speaking of which, Inters has had some interesting transfers during the past three seasons.
Let’s remind ourselves that Inter had the 7th largest negative net transfer spent in the world during the 19/20 season.
In fact, Inters has spent €235 million during the two transfer windows that season and earned around €67.74 million from departures.
The previous seasons weren’t as bad as that one but they weren’t great either. We’ve seen some great football names come and go from Inters but it remains to be seen whether or not the club’s transfer tactic will payout or not.
With that in mind, here’s how much money Inters has spent during the last three seasons.

Inter’s spending during the 20/21 season was quite high, with the club signing several big names. In fact, Inter has spent around €126.50 million for new arrivals. Inter spent the most money on Achraf Hakimi, a total of €43 million to bring the player over from Real Madrid.
The next two most expensive transfers were Nicolo Barella fora total of €32.5 million to bring him over from Cagliari Calcio after loaning him for a €12 million fee the season before and Stefano Sensi for a total of €25 million to bring him over from Sassuolo.
That being said, Inter made a lot of sales during the 20/21 season with the highest transfer being Mauro Icardi who was sold to Paris SG for €50 million.
Other than that, Yann Karamoh was sold to Parma for an undisclosed fee. Therefore, Inter Milan spend almost €127 million on arrivals but earned only around €82.55 million on departures earning yet another negative net transfer but managed to win Serie A and qualify for the Champions League.

Following the 20/21 season, Inter Milan took transfers into their own hands quite efficiently. This time, Inter didn’t overspend on arrivals.
In fact, the club spend only around €40.5 million on arrivals with the most expensive one being bringing in Zinho Vanheusden from Standard Liege for €16 million and bringing in Denzel Dumfries from PSV Eindhoven for €13.6 million. However, Inter did not hold back when it came to departures.
In fact, Inter earned €203.55 million form sales alone. The most lucrative sale was Romelu Lukaku who went to Chelsea for €113 million followed by Achraf Hakimi who was sold to Paris SG for €66.50 million.
In addition, Mateo Politano was sold to SSC Napoli for €21 million. That season, Inter finished second place in Serie A but manage to win both Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana.

This year, Inter is experiencing another negative net transfer even though they seem to be holding back with arrivals. Inter only spent €38.60 million of arrivals with the most expensive transfer being Joaquin Correa who was brought in from Lazio for a total of €23.60 million.
Other transfers were mostly players on loan with most notable ones being Romelu Lukaku who was loaned from Chelsea for €8 million, Kristjan Asllani loaned from FC Empoli for €4 million and Raoul Bellanova who was loaned from Cagliari Calcio for €3 million.

Inter has had a few successful season so far and it seems that their transfer strategy is paying out and that it might continue to do so in the next season after all.
