However, they have agreed to pull the price down to €70 million as the bonuses will make up the difference. Paris are trying to negotiate and bring Inter to agree with €60 million. Suning have decided to cut costs and initiate transfers before bringing anyone in this season. They have to raise €80 million this season through player sales. At the moment, the financial condition of the Nerazzurri has improved a bit.
Since the owners will receive three-year funding of €275 million from Oaktree Capitals. Earlier, in March this year, the Nerazzurri took a €250 million loan from Gold Sachs for the 2020-21 season. In fact, Suning had to take this decision quicker than earlier as FIGC had given an end-of-May deadline to the Chinese owners. The pending salaries had to be paid before the end of the month of May. However, Suning proposed a wage cut to the players and most of them denied it. But it turns out that the Suning will still do that before the summer window.
