Inter Might Be Forced to Part Ways with Multiple Stars

Steven Zhang renewed his commitment to Inter during his sojourn in Italy. But the guidelines won’t change, and the financial situation remains precarious. The Nerazzurri will continue to self-finance and employ cost-cutting measures.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the sale of Denzel Dumfries might not be enough to completely solve the situation. Ownership wishes to lower the payroll and the average age of the squad. La Beneamata may have have to sell a second cornerstone next summer.

While the Dutchman could leave early to mend the current balance session, therefore before June 30th, another star could depart later on to address the following one and the long-term outlook. The possible candidates are Nicolò Barella, Lautaro Martinez, Marcelo Brozovic, and Hakan Calhanoglu, the publication informs.

Inter would demand a hefty offer for any of them. The price tag of the first nears the €100M threshold. They could follow the example of Napoli, which parted ways with multiple staples last summer but retooled their squad with new talents and got better.

The Nerazzurri have been chasing after Marcus Thuram, Yunus Musah, and Giorgio Scalvini. They would have the funds to target them if they raked in money from a pair of their current centerpieces.

Our Take on the Future Inter Plans

The same buzz was ever-present last summer, but it ultimately amounted to nothing, and there’s a long way to go before it becomes a real possibility. Spreading it might also be a calculated move by a seasoned brass to eventually collect the praise if it doesn’t happen. Unlike Napoli, they haven’t proven particularly inventive or successful in unearthing gems. Instead, targeting established players as replacements would be way too expensive.
