Translates into £6.27m for a World Cup winning (hrm) 29-year old striker. Would probably end up scoring goals for fun. I assume the deal also means Inter will take over his wages, which, if around £90k/week, means around £2m in further saved cash. We'd "make" around £8m on the deal in total.
Downside is obviously that Podolski is arguably the most clinical finisher we have. But with Joel Campbell needing playing time, and Walcott coming back...will Podolski realistically get the ten-game run he previously requested?
