Inter CEO Alessandro Antonello confirmed that the club can sign both Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala whilst also respecting ‘economic and financial sustainability’.
The Nerazzurri are dreaming of a front three of Lautaro Martinez-Lukaku-Dybala, but many fans questioned the feasibility of the deals, considering that the club also reportedly need to generate €60m in sales due to financial concerns. Antonello seemed unconcerned today, however, suggesting that Inter have a plan in mind to pull off the impossible.
Speaking at the equestrian event Milano Jumping, Antonello discussed the prospects of signing both Lukaku and Dybala this summer.
“It is fundamental to combine competitiveness on the pitch and economic-financial sustainability. This is the work we are doing, all the choices the club will make on the market will always be inspired by these words.
“We want to be competitive on the pitch, but on the other hand we must also respect the stakes that UEFA is drawing on Financial Fair Play in this transitional period towards the new rules. Everything can be done, but with great consideration for economic and financial sustainability.”
He then provided a further update on the Lukaku situation. Recent reports suggest that the Nerazzurri are close to reaching an agreement with the Blues regarding a loan return.
“Certainly there is the great desire of the player to return, the economic-financial feasibility must be verified and some technical problems must be solved.
“By June 30? We’ll try to do it in the correct timeframe.”
Inter are also on the verge of signing Dybala on a free transfer, following his contract expiry from Juventus. The Argentinian forward scored 15 goals and provided six assists in 39 appearances this season for the Bianconeri.
