A financial report explains how Inter Milan will make a profit worth 3 million euros by replacing Joaquin Correa with Alexis Sanchez.

As we reported earlier today, Correa is on the verge of finalizing his transfer to Olympique Marseille. The Argentine should undergo his medical on Friday.

Subsequently, Sanchez will arrive at Inter tomorrow morning to complete his return. The Chilean represented the club between 2019 and 2022. He spent the last campaign at OM but is now unattached.

According to Calcio e Finanzia via FcInterNews, those two separate operations combined will have a positive impact of circa three million euros.

First, we begin with Correa who first joined Inter in 2021 on a deal worth 32.5 million euros. The former Lazio man signed a four-year contract with Nerazzurri.

Therefore, his current nominal value is 16.9 million. His amortization fee for the 2023/24 campaign is around 8.5M.

Nevertheless, Inter will collect 2 million euros from loan fees while saving 6.5M on gross wages. Thus, this operation will have a positive impact worth 8.5 million.

Inter Milan Should Make A Net Profit Of 2 Million Euros By Offloading Joaquin Correa And Replacing Him With Alexis Sanchez

However, the Italian giants will reinvest a portion of this figure on signing Sanchez, even though he arrives on a free transfer.

As the source explains, the 34-year-old will reportedly earn 3 million euros as net wages. Since the club can’t take advantage of the Growth Decree in this particular case (since Sanchez played in Italy during the 2021/22 campaign), the gross salary should reach 5.55 million.

So between saving 8.5 million from Correa’s operation and spending 5.5M on signing Sanchez, the two transactions combined will allow Inter to register a net profit worth 3 million euros.

Moreover, Correa’s nominal value in June 2024 would be 8.5 million. So if he ends up sealing a permanent transfer to Marseille for an additional 10M, it would allow Inter to register a capital gain of 1.5 million.
