Inter are gearing up for their Champions League debut versus Real Sociedad, hoping to replicate last season’s run that saw them reach the final and lose to Manchester City. Despite the costly defeat, going far had major financial benefits and helped them out immensely in the transfer market.

According to TuttoSport (via OneFootball), the Nerazzurri cashed in €136M in prize money and ticket sales in the past campaign. While they still completed a major sale, André Onana, because the offer was enticing, they reinvested all the income because their balance sheets were in better shape. It hadn’t always happened in previous windows. They splurged on Benjamin Pavard. They’ll also spend for Davide Frattesi and Carlos Augusto in the future given the formulas they used.

Inter are already certain to earn €42M from the Champions League. The sum originates from the participating bonus (€15.64M), their historical ranking (€20.5M), and the market pool (€5.7M).

The final element will increase depending on their results and how the other Italian teams fare. Making it past the group stage, hypothetically by winning at least three games, would net them €20M more.

Inter will be down two men against Real Sociedad on Wednesday. Hakan Calhanoglu is missing due to muscle fatigue in his right adductor, while Juan Cuadrado is out due to tendinopathy, Simone Inzaghi confirmed.
