Inter did a great job last summer to come up with the capital gains needed for UEFA Financial Fair Play. Now that doesn’t mean that it was easy and unfortunately it will have to happen one more time this summer by June 30th. The trap of UEFA FFP restrictions will once again accompany the club of Suning which will have to collect between €30M and €40M in capital gains. Then there will be no more but until then Marotta and Ausilio will have to work in that direction.
A summer ago, the goal was to reach €45M and it was accomplished thanks to the sacrifice of many youngsters of the Scudetto winning Primavera team of Vecchi. But this year, the strategy must be different because the current Primavera squad does not have the right quality young players to fill that gap.
Plan A is to sell a star player with Ivan Perisic and Mauro Icardi being the two most likely candidates. In this scenario, the capital gains issue would be solved in a flash and Inter would be able to move on and restart immediately.
If on the other hand negotiations concerning Ivan and Mauro are taking too long or offers aren’t good enough, Inter would go after plan B which revolves around four players: Zinho Vanheusden, Yann Karamoh, Ionut Radu and Andrea Pinamonti.
Zinho Vanheusden – The defender is linked to Inter until 2022 and is playing as a protagonist at Standard Liège so much so that the league has nominated him for the “best newcomer/freshman” of the year. Inter consider the 19-year-old ready for the first team but the arrival of Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid and the new contract of Andrea Ranocchia will significantly reduce his playing time. So this is why if Inter are in need of cash by the end of June, the club could be forced to sacrifice the player.
Yann Karamoh – The French forward is on loan at Bordeaux and this season for the 20-year-old is far from straight forward. After starting it very well and being starter very often, Yann was suspended for disciplinary reasons and then returned to the team. Playing in U-21 Euro this summer could increase his market value.
Ionut Radu – The Genoa goalkeeper has a strong market. Redeeming the 21-year-old from Genoa in June will cost Inter €15M, €18M if the clause is exercised in 2020. The intention is to re-acquire him immediately this summer since in June, Brazilian goalkeeper Gabrial Brazao will arrive from Parma and then Ionut could be included into negotiations.
Andrea Pinamonti – Pinamonti is under contract until June 2021. Last summer, there was no interesting economic proposal and so Inter sent him to Frosinone on loan. In 25 games this season, the Italian striker has five goals in his first season in Serie A and this could be big for Inter in the hunt for capital gains.
