Inter Risk to Be Forced to Take Back Expensive Bust

Inter managed to get rid of Joaquin Correa last summer, paving the way for the signings of Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez. However, the formula orchestrated with Olympique Marseille doesn’t guarantee he’ll stay put in France at the end of the season, Tuttomercatoweb reports.

The French club must redeem him only if they qualify for the group stage of the next Champions League. Therefore, they either have to finish third, or fourth, if Ligue 1 is one of the top two best-ranked championships in Europe this season. That’s a long-shot.

Olympique Marseille have already gone through a coaching change, turning to Gennaro Gattuso due to poor results. They are tenth in the standings, far away from the positions that would oblige them to buy out Correa. They are 11 points behind the third spot.

The Argentine has appeared nine times and has yet to contribute to a goal. Inter cashed in €2M for the loan and hoped to receive €11M more. While he might be coming back, it’ll be easier to offload him next summer. He’ll weigh for €7.5M on their balance sheets. He’s contracted till 2025.

Our Take on Inter and Correa

It’s one of the rare blunders of Giuseppe Marotta in recent years and also one of the transfers that proves that coaches shouldn’t have too big of a say on the transfer market.
