Inter management aware of UEFA verdict for awhile. With FFP 2.0...
The UEFA sentence will force Inter to limit itself in terms of sporting parameter for next season: transfer restriction and list A for Champions League (only 22 players). What did not meet the parameters set in the settlement agreement signed three years ago is amortization quota which has increased instead of falling due to series of investments that did not bring great benefit (Joao Mario and Gabriel Barbosa).
On one hand, the break-even target has come to fruition. In the meetings held in the past few months with UEFA investigators, the club directors pointed out how it was practically impossible to strengthen the team without affecting amortization. UEFA replied that the rules of the settlement agreement had been agreed upon by both sides. The settlement agreement involved another monitoring year during the 2018-2019 season which is not a consequence of today’s verdict.
Anyway, the club knew about this decision and was very aware of it. In the future, conditions might change with the new FFP 2.0, starting from the fact that responses to budgets closed on June 30th will be much quicker than they are now. This will happen through the presentation of a prospect of next budget whose assessment will impact the verdict.
