Sunderland’s Woes Set to Continue With Black Cats ‘Forced’ to Pay €10.5m for Inter Misfit

By  | 

Sunderland are supposedly going to be required to pay Inter Milan EUR10.5 m for Ricardo Alvarez, after the Italian side won their appeal over a transfer arrangement from 2015.

Some context: Back in 2014, Sunderland loaned in the Mexican for their season – with a condition that needed the Wearsiders to buy the gamer and sign him completely if they were to prevent relegation.

and as far as Inter were concerned, Alvarez would now end up being a Sunderland player, with the previously agreed charge soon being transferred into their bank account.That charge never arrived. Sunderland didn’t wish to keep the assaulting midfielder and refused to sign him on the premises of a knee injury that he had picked up.As a result, neither side announced him in their teams for the list below playing season, leaving Alvarez as a totally free agent-who then signed for Sampdoria in January 2016.

Today, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Sunderland will be required to pay for Alvarez. The Court of Arbitration for Sport have ruled that the English side will have to cough up the full amount formerly concurred, and pay the Nerazzurri for Alvarez.Isn’ t it paradoxical that the payment just so takes place to fall on the summer season after Sunderland’s relegation from the Premier League?What this

suggests for Alvarez is quite unclear. Will he continue with Sampdoria? Will he be required to return to north-east England? Possibly the Champion beckons for the 29-year-old.
