Inter Milan will be required to sell big players this Summer in order to meet the standards of UEFA’s financial fair play regulations.

According to Italian news outlet Sport Mediaset, Inter Milan will face a total squad revamp while forced to sell key players this Summer in order to meet the requirements of UEFA’s FFP rule devised in 2009.

In a report released by Mediaset, it is claimed that Inter Milan need to raise roughly £55 million by the end of the month to satisfy UEFA’s finance regulations. According to UEFA’s official website, non-compliance with the FFP regulations can result in punishments ranging from a fine to a points deduction.

In light of this, many English tabloids are reporting links between Inter Milan players and Premier League teams. The most notable example so far is the apparent tug-of-war ongoing between Manchester United and Chelsea over the chance to sign attacking midfielder Ivan Perisic.

Earlier in the month, Spurs had been linked with a move for Colombian defender Jeison Murillo, who is named in Mediaset’s article as one of the players set to leave the San Siro this Summer. Considering Inter’s struggle with UEFA’s FFP regulations, Murillo’s signature could be on the cards, according to reports that Inter actually want to hold on to Croatian star Perisic, which could hint at a more likely departure for Jeison Murillo, with Spurs set to pounce on the opportunity.

Similarly, Newcastle United, Stoke City, Everton and Crystal Palace are also named as interested parties in the 25 year old’s signature.
