The key to bridging the €3m gap in taxes between Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez salaries could be resolved by Inter sending Andrea Pinamonti and Alexis Sanchez to Roma.
The two clubs met in a hotel room in Milan today to discuss the extraordinary exchange of loans between Dzeko and Sanchez.
They would be six-month swaps, largely sparked by the huge row between Dzeko and Roma coach Paulo Fonseca.
The two stars both earn roughly €7.5m per season, but there is one very big difference, as Alexis Sanchez arrived from Manchester United and therefore benefited from the tax break for talent coming in from abroad.
That means a difference of roughly €3m between the gross cost of the wages for Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez.
It’s a difference that Inter have no intention of paying, so the latest reports suggest the Nerazzurri could ‘reward’ Roma for covering it by offering Pinamonti on loan as part of the package.
