Inter Milan have both spent over €100 million and brought in over €100 million in a busy summer transfer window.

This according to Sky Sport Italia transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who anticipated live on air, via FCInter1908, that now the Nerazzurri’s activity in the market is over and done with.

In the past few transfer windows, Inter’s financial restrictions have been no big secret.

During both the summer of 2021 and last summer, reports suggested that the Nerazzurri were targeting ambitious profits from the market.

In 2021, that was certainly the case – Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi both departed for huge fees.

Last time around, it was not quite the same thing. Defender Milan Skriniar did not leave on a big fee despite a lengthy transfer saga involving Paris Saint-Germain – the Slovakian instead joined the Parisians on a free transfer this summer.

But early signals were that this summer would see Inter target an essentially “net-zero” transfer window.

The Nerazzurri would need to make sales to fund signings. But the money that they did bring in from player sales, they would open their wallets to invest.

Inter Milan Summer Transfer Window After €100M In & Out

As Di Marzio notes, Inter did in fact have an essentially net-zero transfer window.

The Nerazzurri made plenty of sales. Twelve players left, although some of these were on free transfers.

The big money sale of goalkeeper Andre Onana accounts for a big chunk of that. Meanwhile, Marcelo Brozovic and Robin Gosens also headed for the exit door.

And in the other direction, Inter have looked to make plenty of signings to strengthen.

Some of these have been free transfer or low-cost opportunities. By now, Inter fans have come to expect deals like the free transfer deals to snap up veterans like Juan Cuadrado and Alexis Sanchez from the Inter board of directors led by Beppe Marotta.

But on the other hand, the Nerazzurri have also splashed the cash when they’ve needed to.

The imminent arrival of Benjamin Pavard sees Inter finally replace Skriniar, and sparing no expense to do so.

Meanwhile, Davide Frattesi constitutes a significant investment in the future of midfield. Marcus Thuram, as well, joined Inter on a free transfer, but with the caveat that he’s become one of the team’s highest earners.

In Di Marzio’s view, this is it.

Inter will end the transfer window with a bang by signing Pavard.

But when the dust settles, it’s been a summer of frenetic activity in both the entrance and exit doors. And, all told, it’s just about balanced out.
