Really fantastic episode, covering the Acerbi incident intelligently and a very concise and clear financial picture with a crystal ball into the future as well. Can't ask for much more than that. Well done guys.

Okay, let's break down the Nike deal a bit here. It's reported to be 21m€ base fee + team perf bonuses.

On top of that, we've bought the merchandising from Nike at 2019 for 6m€. So all the revenues from the kits, Nike clothes and shit comes to our bank account. Last season 22/23, our revenues from merch was 13.5m€. Production costs were 3.5m€, so the profits were 10m€.

That makes the Nike deal pretty okay for us, given we get 21m€ base fee + 10m€ from merch + any team perf bonuses on top. That's already more than what Puma pays to Milan (30m€). Since that Puma deal includes all the merch so Milan isn't getting extra revenues from the sold merc (same deal as what Juve has with Adidas)

Gazzetta is reporting now that our revenues from Nike merch this season would be around 24m€. If we calculate the production costs with the same ratio, they would be around 6m€. So 18m€ profit on merch. If these numbers are anywhere near the truth, we're closing 40m€ from our kit provider which isn't all too bad at this point of this club's evolution IMO.

Estimate is 25m loss this season. Which is considerably better than 85m loss last season.

However this season will include Onana and Brozovic sale profits. Better CL revenue and added CWC revenue next season should cover something but still, the case is we cannot reinforce the squad without sales.

But even this season includes 100m injection from Zhangs (shareholder loan turned to equity).

As i ve said multiple times the vast majority of the italian press knows nothing..
Our finances dont look that bad after all
The only question is whether we can continue to build a competitive squad via free transfers. I tend to believe the answer is yes, as more and more players see the appeal of getting to free agency.

A new stadium wouldn't hurt either!

Can we stop advertising betting companies? This is not the most ethical thing to do and I know some people who ruined their lives because of their betting addiction. As Inter we should strive to make the world better not worse

Not bad thanks!

I came here to share the same update..
So far Oaktree have been resilient to refinance the loan, considering it ‘high risk’, and so Zhang and his advisors have been hard at work trying to find a solution, considering finding a new loan with the help of Goldman Sachs and the Raine Group.

Il Sore 24 Ore journalist Carlo Festa details how Oaktree have handed a lifeline to Zhang and Inter, opening up to a refinance of the loan from a private equity under certain conditions, in exchange for further guarantees and the promise of finding a new investor in the club in the foreseeable future.
Deadline: May 20th.

Recent reports suggested that a partnership with Betsson could earn Inter at least another €30m per season.
There will also be a new sponsorship deal for the club’s training kits and for the sleeve sponsorship, which is currently held by eBay, ahead of the 2024-25 season.

Assuming that all of Inter’s new sponsorship agreements will be in place by the beginning of the new season, the club’s commercial revenue is expected to surpass €100m next year according to reports from FCInter1908.
I won't be proud to have another betting company sponsor Inter. Especially as main sponsor.

But if they can't get anything better... And as long as they actually pay!

Just wish Inter would sells a jersey with hopefully a second star that doesn't have the sponsors on it.

According to reports our sponsorships will reach 80m€ for this season. And for next season, we've already signed sponsorships worth 72m€, without the main sponsor included. Betsson brings almost 30m€ and then we add the sleeve sponsor also since Ebay deal ends in June. Our training kit deal with LeoVegas will have to be terminated with Betsson coming in so we need to replace that. My asssumption is we should be able to do that financially.

I just read an article that states that Oaktree have put two members on Inter's Board of Directors and that they have a right to veto any decision made by Zhang. Also, the contract negotiations and extensions for our Captain and Barella have been put on hold.

This Championship is going to be short lived and we are going to be on the back foot for next season as Oaktree try to find us new owners.

You read that from the fearmonger masters. Corriere dello Sport is Roman based paper whose editor-in-chief hates Inter. They always try to find out something negative to write about regarding Inter. So nothing to write about football now since we are cruising to the Scudetto so they need to find these other angles.

AFAIK that board thing has been the case since Oaktree stepped in so almost 3 years.

Oaktree is obviously going a complete different direction, this is to be expected. It’s not unlikely we will see a similar approach to what we seen at the other end of town. If and that is a huge if, they take charge.

Also things will depend on how long a timeframe for a new owner can take over from them.

One thing is certain companies like Oaktree aren’t going to let the club bleed money.
