FIFA Order Real to Pay Inter
FIFA have given Real Madrid 30 days to hand over £19 million to Inter in the ongoing row between the two clubs.
On August 31 2002 Ronaldo moved to Real in exchange for £23 million plus £7 million the following January or Santiago Solari.
The Argentine could not agree terms with Inter, and the Nerazzurri requested the cash instead.
The Spaniards argued that Inter had deliberated offered Solari a low wage, thus forcing the player to give up the move.
But their appeal was rejected, and Fifa have now deemed that Real must hand over the £7 million, plus the remaining two instalments of Ronaldo's original fee and five per cent interest. All in all, £19 million.
Its about time that Real pay us our money. We didn't do anything wrong and I'm happy FIFA saw things our way. Though maybe we can include in this 19 Mill Cambiasso and cash (if we haven't already signed Cambiasso for next season) That would be a great way to slightly lower their bill to our advantage :grin:
