Our Take on Inter, Correa, and Olympique Marseille

La Beneamata won’t profit from the sale, as his cost on the balance sheet is €18M and will naturally decrease in a year, but they won’t take a bath either, provided he leaves for good. The two attackers are similar in terms of skillset, but the Chilean veteran is much fierier and more impactful.
