Inter have reached their objective of a €30 million profit in the transfer market for the year ending June 30, in order to comply with the UEFA Financial Fair Play restrictions that the club was under.
Credit must go to technical director Walter Sabatini who managed to meet €30 million target without having to sell any of Inter’s stars.
So who did Sabatini sell?
- Dimarco to Sion for €4 million
- Gravillon to Benevento for €1.5 million
- Miangue to Cagliari for €3.5 million
- Eguelfi to Atalanta for €1.5 million
- Banega to Sevilla for €9 million
- Caprari to Sampdoria for €15 million
Caprari was inserted in the negotiations that brought Milan Skriniar to Inter. The cost of this operation was €20 million plus bonuses, which will be tied to the number of appearances that the defender can reach during his 5 year contract at Inter.
Add in that Premier League sides West Brom and Huddersfield Town are both interested in signing defender Andrea Ranocchia, Inter have a good chance to smash past that €30m profit level.
With July 1 right around the corner, and with a reported €200m transfer kitty, it will be fascinating to see how Sabatini and manager Luciano Spalletti go about filling the gaps in the squad.
