Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan is the team that has made the most profit in this summer market with a total of 161.1 million euros. The neroazzurros have gotten rid of Romelu Lukaku (€ 115M), Achraf Hakimi (€ 60M), Matteo Politano (€ 19M), Antonio Candreva (€ 2.5M) and Rigoberto Rivas (€ 0.5M) and have invested a total of € 36M in names such as Dumfries or Vanheusden.
The economic crisis of the Italian team has forced the sports management to get rid of important players to alleviate the consequences of Covid-19 and strengthen the team at low cost: Dzeko, Dumfries or Vanheusden are presented as the big names to try to maintain the hegemony in Calcio this season 2021/22.
💲 Inter Milan is the club with the best transfer balance in the summer market, while FC Barcelona occupies fifth place.

The clubs that complete the top 5 are Borussia Dortmund (€ 62.8M), RB Salzburg (€ 53.4M), Udinese (€ 53M) and FC Barcelona (€ 49M). The list continues with Real Madrid (€ 47M), PSV (€ 46.97M), AZ (€ 42.05M), Olympique Lyon (€ 40M) and Schalke 04 (€ 38.8M).
Barcelona sales, a necessary question
The Catalans have been the fifth team that has obtained the greatest profit in this summer market with a total of 49 million euros. The great debt inherited from the board of Josep Maria Bartomeu has forced the sale of important players: Emerson Royal (€ 25M), Junior Firpo (€ 15M), Griezmann (€ 10M for the transfer), Todibo (€ 8.5M) and Aleñá (€ 5M) stand out in the transfer section.
The club has also gotten rid of other players such as Leo Messi, who did not renew with the club, or Miralem Pjanic and Francisco Trincao, who have left on loan in order to reduce the wage bill. The summer in the club’s sports area has been hectic because important names have also arrived at no cost: Memphis Depay, Kun Agüero or Eric Garcia raise the competitive ceiling of the group.
