Inter Cash In on Pinamonti, Sassuolo Eye Casadei Next

Inter and Sassuolo formally put the finishing touches on the Andrea Pinamonti deal yesterday. The striker will don the no.9 jersey with the Neroverdi. He might not be the only Nerazzurri youth product to make his way to Emilia, as the clubs are discussing Cesare Casadei too.

As per Calcio e Finanza, the former Empoli loanee transferred on an initial loan with a €20M obligation to buy. The amount of the plusvalenza will hinge on when the move will become permanent, either right away, during the season or directly at the end of it. La Beneamata had actually sold the striker to Genoa in the past and repurchased him for €21M in 2020. Following the amortization, the club will register a net profit between €9.5M and €15M depending on the timing.

In the end, Pinamonti joined Sassuolo with no recompra in favor of Inter, nor a release clause. Such aspects were considered, but they were cast aside since they would have delayed the proceedings. A gentleman’s agreement will allow the Nerazzurri to match future offers for the center-forward, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the two sides will remain in touch to try setting up the transfer of Casadei. The Scudetto runner-ups insist on having the possibility of bringing him back for a pre-determined fee in this case. Nice could agree to it too, while it’s a non-starter for Chelsea.

Our Take on Pinamonti Deal Between Inter and Sassuolo

It’s an unusually large investment for the Neroverdi, but the 23-year-old has more than proven his worth in Serie A, and his value will keep rising. Coach Alessio Dionisi voiced some doubts about Agustin Alvarez’s readiness, so they needed another marksman.
