La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Inter discovered a flaw in Timo Werner is contract with RB Leipzig, thereby saving them 10 million euros in this deal.
Inter led the race for autographs Timo Werner
Timo Werner‘s contract release clause is worth 60 million euros, which is not too large but is a good figure for clubs to consider in the context of the global epidemic raging world football.
However, the leading Italian sports daily revealed that in the past 10 days, Inter secretly investigated and contacted Werner’s representative and discovered a detail that had never been published before in the contract. Accordingly, the price of 60 million euros will only be maintained as long as Leipzig wins the Bundesliga championship of the 2019/20 season.
In all other cases, Werner’s contract release price will be only 50 million euros. Obviously, at this time, despite the chance to win the Silver Disc, Leipzig’s chances are not too high when they are ranked 3rd in the table and 5 points behind the leaders of Bayern. That means, Leipzig will lose the advantage of negotiating with clubs that want to access Timo Werner, especially when cash flows into football are interrupted by the effects of the global epidemic.
Also according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter is willing to pay Timo Werner an 8-digit salary, about 10.5 million euros per season. Thus, if agreed to move to Inter, Werner will become the highest-paid player in the Milan team, surpassing Eriksen’s income (9.15 million euros) and Lukaku (8 million euros).
Eight clubs are thought to have contacted Timo Werner in the past two years, most notably Liverpool. Leipzig has repeatedly confirmed that the Champions League champion has repeatedly sent representatives through negotiations, expressing his desire to have Werner in the squad. Not to mention, Liverpool has done business with Leipzig in the Naby Keita deal. Even the trust of the two sides has been confirmed in the past when Leipzig agreed to sell Keita to Liverpool half a year before the launch of the Guinea midfielder at Anfield.
The thing is, Covid-19 is a direct slap to the ambition of the Merseyside team. Although Juergen Klopp has always expressed admiration for his compatriot, he recently revealed that Liverpool has no spending plan this summer in order to save costs after the enormous losses the club has suffered. Last 2 months.
On the other hand, Inter has enough motivation to conduct this deal. According to Sport, Barca agreed to pay Inter 60 million euros in cash and two more players in the first team in exchange for Lautaro Martinez, who sent a letter to the Inter leader that his priority was to wear Barca. Accepting Barca, Inter not only has money to recruit Timo Werner but also has 10 million euros left over to invest in other items.
Inter lost the ability to retain Martinez
Lautaro Martinez’s contract with Inter has a provision that after July 15, the liberation fee will automatically increase … 111 million euros, a figure sufficient to deter any giants in the current situation. For as long, Inter as Martinez “devalued” by last month, Barca also paid them 90 million euros and 1 more player to get Martinez.
