Inter to make money off Coutinho

Inter will make some money if Liverpool go through with their €150m sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

The transfer is imminent and has been in the works for several months, but they managed to stall the Brazilian until now.

It’s reported the price will be €110m plus another €40m in performance-related bonuses.

Inter bought a young Coutinho from Vasco da Gama in 2008 for just €3.8m and sold him to Liverpool, following a loan spell at Espanyol, for €13m in January 2013.

As the Nerazzurri had a hand in his development, they are owed some of the 5 per cent of a selling-on fee.

Calcio e Finanza calculated that, if the €150m transfer is confirmed, Inter will receive approximately €2m: 1.25 per cent of the total.
