2022-23 Inter Milan Salaries & Contracts Breakdown

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Who’s the highest-paid player at the San Siro this season? Boardroom dives into the details of all the Inter Milan salaries currently on the books.

Inter Milan, or FC Internazionale Milano, has a rich history of handing big salaries to big-name signings in the transfer market. The Italian club was founded in 1908 and has since been one of the most successful teams in Italy. Over the years, they have made numerous big-name signings to excite their passionate fanbase. However, they’ve also sold those premium assets for significant sums.

The Nerazzurri did not hesitate to buy Romelu Lukaku for $81.12 million from Manchester United in 2019 but had no qualms about selling him to Chelsea two years later for $123.87 million– the third-most-expensive transfer of all time. The club’s transfer market history combines big-name signings, successful transfers, and financial struggles. Despite these challenges, the club has remained one of the most successful teams in Italian football and continues attracting top talent worldwide.

These days, Inter prioritizes financial sustainability, which has enabled them to make intelligent transfer decisions without overspending. By offering short-term contracts, Inter Milan can retain flexibility in their squad and bypass long-term financial obligations, especially after the uncertainty of the global pandemic.

But who would agree to a short-term deal when today’s generation prioritizes long-term stability?

Factor in the pride that makes players feel a greater sense of urgency to succeed and prove their worth to the club. Or, the freedom that comes with negotiating more frequent salary increases or exploring new opportunities like a move to Saudi Arabia sooner rather than later. With so much flexibility for the club and players, the strategic decision benefits both parties.

So who are the players performing at Champions League semi-final levels this season? Let’s look at the Inter Milan salaries on the books for the 2022-23 season.
