As we are waiting for the official announcement to appoint Marotta as the new Inter CEO, let’s talk a little bit about what he can bring to the table. The executive from Varese will bring to Inter all of his expertise and connections on the transfer market. The network of contacts will allow Marotta to immediately translate Zhang’s ideas into practice in terms of objectives to be achieved.
At Juventus, Marotta was an executive of big signings at no cost, low-cost discoveries, huge signings but also huge sales, starting point for subsequent investments. Pogba is the prime example. But this model is also open at Inter and Marotta was chosen because of this. The sustainable signing and subsequent sale at a monstrous figure of the same player will be a protocol to be followed carefully. For example, Inter could sell Skriniar and then choose a replacement of similar class and at the same time, they will still have left over money to reinforce other departments.
Moreover, this is the shortest way to reduce the revenue gap with Juventus, a gap that cannot be reduced just by counting revenues from China and gate receipts. Don’t worry, all of this was discussed in Nanjing with Steven Zhang and his father.
