Inter paid €40.5m for Kondogbia

Inter released their financial documents yesterday, showing Geoffrey Kondogbia cost €40.5m and Ever Banega €4.5m.

A shareholders’ meeting was held on Friday and more detail given on the actual cost of various transfers.

This includes some players who arrived in 2015, but whose price-tag has risen because of performance-related bonuses.

A strong example is Kondogbia, the midfielder who has fallen down the pecking order under Coach Frank de Boer.

He was originally signed for €31m from AS Monaco in June 2015, but the cost of the player on the books now is registered as €40.5m.

This is due to performance-related bonuses and payment to his agents.

Ivan Perisic’s cost has also climbed from €16m a year ago to €19m now.

Surprisingly, Banega was registered at a cost of €4.5m, despite being a free agent after his contract with Sevilla expired.

It’s believed this sum went to the Argentina international midfielder’s agent.

Joao Mario’s transfer is confirmed to have cost €45m from Sporting Lisbon over the summer, while Gabriel Barbosa was worth €29.5m from Santos.

Antonio Candreva’s transfer value was €25m, Cristian Ansaldi €10.5m and Pescara’s Gianluca Caprari €5.5m.

There was also a rather curious clause in the Juan Jesus deal taking him to Roma on loan.

The paperwork shows the obligation for Roma to buy the defender as long as they don’t get relegated this season.

Similarly, Dodo is loaned to Sampdoria with an option that becomes mandatory after his first appearance of the 2017-18 season.
