So, there's a lot of question about the financial health of Inter at the moment.
We reported results for the previous season of -84 million USD, lets call it 65 million euros.
Since then, whats happened?
Money (m euros) Note Affect -65 Starting Point N/A -105 No CL -40 -97 Manager going from 10m/season to 2m/season +8 -56 Forlan, Cordoba, Lucio, Orlandoni, Zarate, Muntari, Pandev +41 -49 Pandev transfer fee +7 -42 Castaignos transfer fee +7 -33 Assuming we get the max available money in the Europa League (taken from Villareal 10/11) +9 -38 Handanovic's salary -5 -41 Handanovic's fee amoritzed over 4 years (assuming 12m) -3 -46 Guarin's salary -5 -49 Guarin's transfer fee -3 -52 Silvestre's salary -3 -55 Mudingayi's salary (1.5m/season) -3 -58 Palacio amoritzation -3 -63 Palacio salary -5 -53 Sale of Motta +10 -45 Motta wage savings +8 -41 Samuel renewal savings +4
So this means for the next 2 seasons we can lose a maximum of 4 million TOTAL to comply with FFP
If we make some assumptions, though...
-39 Selling Cesar for 2m +2 -31 Cesar's salary +8 -24 Releasing Stankovic +7 -16 Selling Maicon +8 -8 Maicon's salary +8 10 Selling Sneijder +18 22 Sneijder's salary +12
It becomes pretty immediately obvious what has to be done..
This is before you even think about their replacements - e.g. Lucas, Debuchy, or even Poli?
All in all, its pretty bad times at Inter. Its obvious that what we need is the revenue increase - a new stadium could generate a swing of as much as 60-70 million euros a season. Increased commerce could probably quite easily generate another 20 - 30 million euros...
Hope this clears things up for you guys a bit, anyway, about our financial situation.
