Madrid deny Achraf's play-off due to Inter defaults

Inter's financial problems seemed to endanger Achraf's stay in Milan. As AS reported a few days ago, the Italian club could not make the payment of the first installment on time of the transfer of the side, which amounted to 10 million euros and which expired in December. Both clubs reached an agreement, or so it seemed. But Corriere dello Sport reported today that the positions are at odds and that Real Madrid could try to recover the player.

Hours later, the white club was quick to deny the news that was on the front page of the Italian newspaper. “In relation to the information published by the Corriere dello Sport on alleged tensions between our club and Inter Milan, Real Madrid C. F. wants to state that said information is flatly false.

Real Madrid has not proceeded at any time to an alleged requirement of guarantees from Inter Milan just as the publication states. The terms of the player's transfer to Inter are framed within the usual and normal contractual relationships between football clubs. And more in this case with Inter Milan, with whom Real Madrid has always maintained and maintains excellent relations as a historical and friendly club. “

In principle the term for the payment of that first installment had been extended by mutual agreement until March 30. The reason for this date is that one day later, no club that wants to participate in European competitions can have unpaid debts to other clubs.

According to the Corriere, the white club awaited the presentation of a series of guarantees that this payment would be made within the new term. Inter, for its part, did not consider that these guarantees were necessary, since the new agreement had been closed with a letter. Always according to this information, Real Madrid considered that the new term was no longer valid. In other words, he considered that Inter would not have fulfilled the agreement for the transfer of Achraf and I would be working on formulas to get it back.

Achraf, despite some difficulties in his first months in Milan, has become a key part of Antonio Conte's team this season, in which has scored 6 goals and has distributed 5 assists. He has taken over the right wing nerazzurra and your contribution has been key for Inter to finish second in Serie A.
