Inter won't repeat Zaniolo deal: if Pinamonti is sold, there will be buy-back clause
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Andrea Pinamonti will not be sacrificed in the name of UEFA FFP and capital gains. The 20-year-old striker came on the scene last year with five goals scored for Frosinone. Then he confirmed his qualities by having an excellent U-20 World Cup: 4 goals in 6 games before suffering a knee injury which has resulted in forfeiting U-21 European tournament.
Inter believe in him which is why the first option for his second year in Serie A will still be loan. It is true that if we are close to June 30th and Andrea Pinamonti is the last card for Inter to play for the final millions of capital gains, then its mangement would evaluate the sacrifice but with a huge asterisk: Inter do not want to repeat another Zaniolo deal and so the possible sale of Pinamonti will be accompanied by buy-back clause.
