Inter Milan are one of the clubs hardest hit by the coronavirus crisis. Discussions are even underway in Italy to urgently sell the club to the British private equity firm BC Partners. And the impact of this crisis means that first-team players are not even getting paid.
This situation also affects relations between Inter Milan and Real Madrid because of the Moroccan international Achraf Hakimi. Indeed, the “white house” is still waiting for its money for the transfer of the Moroccan. The two clubs had agreed that the transfer amount could be paid in installments, but the first installment of 10 million euros has not yet been made.
The initial payment was to be made last December, but that the Merengue management finally granted the Milanese until March 30. However, Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, demanded additional guarantees to receive the money on time, threatening to work to get the player back if Inter did not pay on time.
Inter will therefore be required to end their dispute with Real Madrid to avoid losing Hakimi or risking sanctions that could take him away from continental competitions.
