As every year, the specialized website calcioefinanza.it examines the accounts of the clubs. Today, in particular, the impact on the budget of Inter’s summer market is announced. And we immediately notice the difference with last season: “According to the estimates of Calcio e Finanza in the past season the cost of the enlarged squad (gross salaries + depreciation + cost of the players on loan) of Inter was equal to 191 million euros – reads – In the summer session of the transfer market 2019-2020 Inter purchased eight players outright for a total investment of 138 million euros, including the redemption of Politano (for which we do not consider the salary in the following table, however already paid by Inter in the past season) and some players then loaned. During the summer transfer campaign, 2019-2020 Inter also hired four players on a temporary basis “.
“In terms of transfers, in the summer session of the transfer campaign Inter 2019-2020 sold outright to other clubs only one player: the 1996 class striker George Puscas at Reading for 8 million euros, with a capital gain of eight million – explains CF – Among other operations, to signal the termination of the contract for Miranda, in addition to the savings deriving from the repayment in loan of the players not redeemed in the last season as Keita and Vrsaljko “. In this sense, the greatest savings come from lightening the wage bill thanks to the loan departures of the various Icardi, Nainggolan, Perisic, and Dalbert.
In general, between income and expenses, the cost of the current squad would be around 221.6 million euros. In essence, there is an increase of around 30.5 million (+ 16%) compared to the 2018-2019 list. “In particular, the gross salary, gross of taxes, should amount to 104.0 million euros, an increase of around 600 thousand euros compared to 2018-2019 (+ 1%) – explains Calcio e Finanza -. sports performance of players should instead be 100.6 million, up 31 million compared to the previous season (+ 46%). The cost of players on loan should instead decrease from 19 million to 17 million euro (-11 %) “.
In short, rumors all on the rise compared to the recent past. Can these outputs be supported? Yes, but everything will depend on revenues and any capital gains by June 2020. “The increase in the costs of the rose should, however, be partially filled with the growth in the characteristic turnover which, in the estimates, should reach 400 million in the 2019/20 season, without taking into account capital gains “, concludes Calcio e Finanza.
The new stadium, the City of Milan does not want a closed-box choice: the 4 projects under consideration must be made public.
A comparison is opened between the Municipality of Milan, Milan, and Inter on the theme of the new stadium. With a precise request from Palazzo Marino: the choice of the winning project must be transparent. It means that in one way or another – as pointed out by Mayor Beppe Sala a few days ago – public opinion must know all four projects of architectural firms invited by clubs to design the new plant and the square and not only the winning project as it seems to be instead in the intentions of the two teams. In the competition – we read in the Corriere Della Sera – there are two Milanese studios, Stefano Boeri’s and Progetto Cmr’s (in cohabitation with Sportium), against the Americans, Populous and Hok, two of the largest global architectural teams.
Hok has signed, among others, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, while the Italian Cmr studio has implemented the concept of the new stadiums in Cagliari and Padua. As for Populous, these are the giants of the sector with more than a thousand sports arenas signed in every corner of the planet, including the new Wembley and the playing field of Tottenham (re) born on the ashes of the old White Hart Lane. All four presented their preliminary projects and Inter and Milan took another two weeks before sending a dossier (purified of sensitive data) to the municipal councilors with renderings of the chosen project.
Here, the request of the Municipality – explains Corsera – is that instead in the dossier all four projects are present and one begins to think about the possibility of a public debate, of an exhibition or in any case of forms of publicity that let us know the advantages and disadvantages of the four solutions that in any case involving the demolition of the San Siro. We are only at the first skirmish, as the two companies said they were available for maximum sharing; for its part, the Municipality does not seem to have preconceptions about the operation, also because the investment on the San Siro is one of those difficult to postpone, a billion and 200 million euros.
Nodes remain, however, read the volumes: the City Council will have to decide whether to derogate from the planning rules for the San Siro area. The two teams, in fact, chose to use the stadium law, “because it gives more certainty about the times”, but above all, and this is the thorniest point because it allows much larger volumes than the plan of government of the territory. Double for accuracy. According to the law on stadiums, the index granted is 0.70. The Pgt, for the San Siro area, provides for 0.35. In recent days, Sala had been clear: “What companies are asking for today is not in line with our rules. We will leave it to the City Council to decide if exceptions can be accepted”.
