Inter owners Suning are planning to make the club more financially sustainable this summer, but they’ve made clear that they will not sacrifice the competitiveness of the team on the pitch to do so.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri owners have given the diktat that whether or not the team win the Scudetto this evening, the plans are to compete on all fronts next season.

Inter’s directors will not have to navigate as tricky a transfer window as last summer’s was this time around, but there will still be clear financial targets to meet.

The wage bill will have to be slashed by around 15%, whilst a significant profit must also be made in the transfer market in terms of sales.

However, the owners have also made it clear that these do not entail any change in their ambitions on the pitch, namely competing for all domestic trophies as well as continued progress in the Champions League.

President Steven Zhang is continuing to pursue commercial opportunities to increase revenues and support the team, whilst the partnership with Socios.com will continue even as the fan token company is replaced by DigitalBits as the main shirt sponsor.

The President has also approved targeted spending even within the context of the belt-tightening, namely in the form of a financial push to sign Paulo Dybala on a free transfer and extend the contract of Ivan Perisic.
