Marotta: 'Player prices will fall'

Inter chief Beppe Marotta believes player prices will fall and “there could be more swap deals” because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Market prices had spiked after Neymar’s €222m transfer to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in 2017 but, with the season ground to a halt as the world fights off COVID-19, clubs are suffering losses of earnings.

“Beyond the dates that are still to be determined, I think it will inevitably be a poorer market so there could be more swap deals,” Marotta told Tuttosport.

“We’ll see a general drop in prices because the problem is global. It’ll be important to be able to exploit the resources of our academies.”
