Inter Milan now have a starting eleven valued at over €500 million despite outlaying relatively small transfer fees.

Today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, highlight the cash value of the Nerazzurri’s key players.

Inter have pursued a very clear transfer strategy in recent years.

The Nerazzurri have worked within significant financial restrictions.

This has meant going after players who are available either relatively cheaply, or on free transfers.

The likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Marcus Thuram have all signed for Inter without transfer fees, when their contracts with AC Milan, Roma, and Borussia Monchengladbach respectively had expired.

And in the case of other players, the transfer fees have been significant – but hardly massive.

Inter Milan Squad Valued At Over 500M

According to Tuttosport, Benjamin Pavard is an example of a player who is already worth more than what Inter paid for him.

The Nerazzurri paid Bayern Munich a little more than 30 million.

This was a big fee by Inter’s standards. But it also reflected the fact that Pavard’s contract with the German champions had been less than twelve months away from expiring.

And Pavard’s performances this season have confirmed that his market value would be higher than that.

Tuttosport suggest that the 27-year-old is worth a minimum of 50 million.

And Pavard’s fellow French international Thuram is worth even more. The 26-year-old would undoubtedly command a price tag of at least 60 million.

And that is for a player who Inter did not pay a transfer fee.

Another player who Tuttosport suggest would be worth at least 50 million is Federico Dimarco.

The Italian international is a graduate of Inter’s youth academy.

Dimarco did make the move to Swiss side Sion earlier in his career, for a fee of around 4 million. But then Inter swiftly exercised a buyback clause worth around 7 million.

And now, the 26-year-old is certainly worth far in excess of those figures.
