Italian media claim €20m Inter’s fair valuation of Chelsea new boy Cesare Casadei if Man United-Bound Casemiro is worth €70m
Italian media have argued that the potential €20m Inter received for midfielder Cesare Casdaei is not an exaggeration of the 19-year-old’s value given the dynamics of the transfer market in the Premier League.
This is examined in today’s print edition of Milan’s Gazzetta dello Sport, which notes that with the hefty €70million fee Manchester United set to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid, Chelsea’s deal for signing Casadei seems more than reasonable.
Inter managed to cash in on a player who had never made an appearance for their senior squad by selling Casadei to Chelsea for an initial fee of €15m plus a possible €5m bonus. .
Some eyebrows were raised by the amount of the fee, although Casadei has long been a highly regarded young talent who Chelsea said was clearly worth making a significant investment.
Meanwhile, in the Premier League, Blues rivals Manchester United have agreed a €70m deal with Real to sign Casemiro, and with the Brazilian turning 31 this season, it’s fitting to note that he’s already halfway through his prime rather than having his best years ahead of him as Casadei probably does.
It’s not just top clubs like Chelsea and United who spend a summer spending in the English top flight, and even teams in the mid-table and below have the financial resources and the pulling power to bring in players. high profile on a fee that would be relatively rare even among big hitters in other leagues like Serie A.
Casadei’s transfer represented an opportunity for Inter to bring a much-needed influx of money to a player who has largely failed to prove himself at senior level, but in the current Premier League market environment, this was not a deal that was irrelevant. ordinary.
