Italy’s “New Champion” is in a serious financial crisis. His players previously promised to give up their prize money if they win the championship, and now they are asked to take a step forward.
According to reports from the Italian Sky Sports Club, club chairman Steven Zhang asked the players to give up two months of salary. According to reports, he held a meeting on Monday weekend to ask the players. A few days ago, he publicly announced the news that measures would be taken to cut large expenditures.
The meeting written by La Gazzetta dello Sport lasted approximately 45 minutes. It has all the players, but no coach Antonio Conte. The same source pointed out that each player will decide whether to approve the request individually and will meet with club representatives in the next few days and weeks. On average, Inter Milan allocates approximately 4.1 million euros to salary each year. Inter Milan estimates that about 25 million euros can be saved in this way. In order to persuade them to accept the proposal, the president promised to pay them title bonuses anyway.
Since the 2009/10 season, Inter Milan has become the Italian champion for the first time this season.
