Inter Milan’s recently released financial statements shed further light on some shrewd business, including selling Andre Onana and signing Marcus Thuram.
On Thursday, the club held its annual shareholders meeting. The assembly approved the balance sheet from the 2022/23 season.
According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, the approved figures included some masterstrokes from the club’s management during the summer transfer market.
Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta and the club’s sporting director Piero Ausilio revamped Simone Inzaghi’s squad. A host of senior players left the club while several newcomers flocked to Appiano Gentile.
The Turin-based newspaper highlights two operations in particular. The first is signing Thuram as a free agent from Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Nerazzurri only spent 8 million euros on the French international between wages and commissions. His current market value is 40 million.
Moreover, the Italian giants sold Andre Onana to Manchester United for 50.2 million euros. This figure doesn’t include bonuses.
The Beneamata made an incredible windfall from the goalkeeper who only spent a single campaign at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.
Inter Milan Registered Major Profits From Marcus Thuram And Andre Onana Operations
Inter had signed the Cameroonian on a free transfer from Ajax in the summer of 2022, only costing them a commission of 1.9 million euros.
On the other hand, the source mentions Robin Gosens’ sale to Union Berlin. The German joined Inter from Atalanta in January 2022 but never truly cemented himself as a regular starter in Inzaghi’s formation.
So as the report explains, the player’s devaluation cost the club a loss of 7 million euros. This figure is the difference between the sum paid for the left-back’s services and his selling price.
