The loan of Carlos Augusto to Inter Milan from Monza has a purchase obligation next summer, but only if the Nerazzurri qualify for European football.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInter1908.

Earlier today, Inter officially announced the arrival of wingback Augusto from Monza.

The Nerazzurri’s statement confirms that the Brazilian has signed on a one-season loan deal containing a purchase obligation.

However, Inter also clarify that the obligation will only come into effect under certain conditions. However, the club do not confirm what these specific conditions are.

According to FCIN1908, however, there is a specific condition that will trigger the purchase obligation. That is that Inter qualify for European football next season.

Therefore, if the Nerazzurri qualify for the Champions League, Europa League, or even the Europa Conference League next campaign, they will sign Augusto on a permanent basis next summer.

Inter Milan To Sign Carlos Augusto Permanently From Monza If They Qualify For Europe

Obviously, considering Inter’s stature and expectations, European football is a condition they’ll expect to meet.

For the Nerazzurri, even reaching the Champions League is considered virtually the bare minimum.

And even if Inter were to miss out on Europe’s top competition, they would have some wiggle room. Typically, fifth and sixth place in Serie A secure passage to the Europa League.

And, if the “unthinkable” were to happen and Inter were to fail to even reach that high, there would still be hope for the purchase obligation clause in Augusto’s loan deal.

The Nerazzurri could qualify for the Europa Conference League.

And, alternatively, if Inter were to win either the Champions League or Europa League next season, they’d qualify for the following season’s Champions league no matter where they finished in the Serie A table.

Therefore, the condition for the purchase obligation is one that both clubs obviously expect to happen.
