Inter Milan director, Piero Ausilio has claimed that they can afford to buy Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, but admits a deal will be impossible because of Financial Fair Play rules.
Ausilo says Inter’s owners, the Suning Group, would be able to bankroll a record-breaking deal, but admits that a move cannot be made due to rules imposed regarding club spending.
He told students at a class in the Universita degli Studi in Milan: “Today we have a strong and solid ownership.
“The new Chinese owners could comfortably buy the most famous players in the world, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, but the truth is we can’t do that because of Financial Fair Play, which takes into account the development of the club.
“It’s a path that takes time, ideas and management. We have to make as few mistakes as possible, certainly fewer than we’ve made this term.”
