Joaquin Correa’s obligation to buy clause was triggered following Inter’s win over Lazio on Sunday.
As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), the deal that saw the Argentinian forward join the Nerazzurri in the summer on a €5 million loan deal with a conditional obligation to buy clause attached, set at €25 million.
Disappointingly for Lazio, this money will go into the budget from 1st February, meaning that it’ll affect the liquidity ratio from March onward and not the current one. As such, the club will still have to sell this month if they want to sign some reinforcements.
The 27-year-old Correa has made 17 appearances across all competitions so far this season for Inter, for a total of 615 minutes. In that time, he has scored four goals and provided one assist.
