Roma Financially Profit Off Champions League Qualification for Inter

Edin Dzeko’s seamless integration in Simone Inzaghi’s squad has profited not only Inter but also the Bosnian’s ex-club Roma, where he spent six seasons scoring 119 goals in 260 appearances. Although he left Roma for free after his Giallorossi contract expired, the Romans had added a clause from their end in the transfer bill.

With Inter mathematically in the UEFA Champions League next season, Roma can now receive their €1.5m bonus – an agreement that was set upon during the Bosnian’s transfer last year.

Despite the Giallorossi succumbing to a 3-1 loss at the Giuseppe Meazza, the three points won by the Nerazzurri virtually hands them the handsome reward.

The top-four clause was all but set in stone for Inter as they are first in line to retain their Scudetto title, hanging two points behind Milan with one extra game in hand,

Dzeko was brought in by the Nerazzurri on a free transfer in the summer of 2021 to replace former striker Romelu Lukaku, taking advantage of which the ex-Wolfsburg striker has made his mark already, bagging 17 goals in 44 caps for the reigning Italian champions so far.
